Add Events to a project

Adobe I/O Events allow you to receive notifications of real-time events taking place in Adobe services. To add events to your project you must register a webhook, to which Adobe I/O Events sends HTTP POST requests containing the details of each event. Using Events, you can build event-driven applications that integrate with Adobe products and services.

To learn more about Adobe I/O Events, read the events documentation.

Add events#

To add events to your application, begin by navigating to the Project overview or Workspace overview if working in a templated project. You can then select Add event from the quick start menu or select Event from the Add to Project dropdown (or Add Service in a templated project).

events get started

The Add events dialog opens, providing a listing of Adobe event providers that can be filtered based on the products that are available to your organization.

events add

Choose the event that you would like to add and select Next to begin configuring the events.

events add select


The first step in configuration is to choose your event subscriptions. This requires you to select from the provided list which events you would like to receive notifications about from your chosen event providers. As events are chosen, they appear under Subscribed Events in the left navigation.

events configure


The next step in configuring your event registration is to configure the authentication credentials. This could be a service account (JWT) or OAuth, depending on the type of event being configured. The example in this document uses OAuth 2.0 authentication and authorization.

To configure an Event using OAuth 2.0 authentication and authorization, you must first select the platform where you want to use this integration: Web App, Single Page App, or Native App. Please note, depending on the selected event provider not all platform choices may be available.

Once you have selected a platform, you will be required to provide a Redirect URI, which is a fallback URI to be used if the authorization request contains a redirect URI which doesn't match the Redirect URI list or doesn't contain a redirect_uri parameter.

After entering a redirect that matches the appropriate formatting, you can then select Next to proceed with event configuration.

Registration details#

To complete the configuration process, you must provide Event registration details including a custom name and description to differentiate this event registration from others in the project.

You must also register a webhook by providing a Webhook URL to receive notifications about events and specifying how often you would like to receive events. Each event results in an HTTP request to the webhook URL, notifying your application about events. You can select the Delivery Style you prefer, receiving one event at a time ("Single") or multiple events together ("Batch").

To learn more about webhooks, visit the webhooks documentation.

After completing the Event registration details select Save configured events to complete the configuration.

Event overview#

Once events have been successfully configured, you will be taken to the event overview with tabs providing information regarding the Registration Details, Credentials, and Debug Tracing.

You can also remove an event registration from the event overview by selecting Delete Events Registration in the top-right corner.

The Credentials tab shows details related to the event authentication method, allowing you to perform actions such as copying a Client ID, retrieving the client secret, generating a JWT token, etc depending on the type of authentication used.

events credentials

Debug Tracing#

The Debug Tracing tab shows details related to recent requests and responses related to the registered events. This includes the date and time, event ID, and more.

Next steps#

Now that you have successfully added events to your project or workspace, you can follow this workflow again to add additional event registrations, or return to the services overview to select another type of service to add to your project.

If you have completed development on your project and are ready to submit your application for approval, please read the project approval guide to get started.
