Run Event in Journey

The Run Event in Journey Data Operation allows Data Flows to run Session Events within a user’s session or invoke an Event in a different session. This is useful for performing client side operations (such as updating a web page, sending a text message, placing a phone call, etc.) from within a Data Operation. 

Use Cases

  • Send a text message to a user to notify of an update from Portals Builder through a Data Flow, by taking the session ID from a stored value in AirData and passing it to the Run Session Event Data Operation
  • Update a user’s Web Flow based on an update from another system by passing in the session ID from a stored value
