Introduction to Events

Events in the Twin Engine allow you to declare when certain events have occured, either at the edge, or with your Automations. For example, you can emit events when telemetry is received that dictates an event happened, or raise Events from Automations to declare that something occured.

Events have a set of properties to help describe the event that has occured, and can be seen when viewing Events against a Model.

NameThe name given to this instance of an Event to recognise the Event
TimestampThe timestamp at which the Event was raised
AttributesArbitrary JSON attributes against an Event such as Telemetry data
