Optimizely Experimentation uses the Event API to send event data to the backend servers. In fact, Optimizely Web Experimentation and Optimizely Feature Experimentation implement the Event API to send your event data to Optimizely Experimentation.
In order for Optimizely Experimentation to ingest your data, you must send that event data to Optimizely. You can do so using one of the Optimizely Experimentation products or directly using the Event API.
You can send data to Optimizely Experimentation using:
- Optimizely Web Experimentation – Once you have implemented the one-line snippet on your web page and created events, the snippet will automatically send event data to Optimizely Experimentation's backends.
- Optimizely Feature Experimentation – Once you have implemented one of Optimizely Feature Experimentation's SDKs or Optimizely Agent, created events, and instrumented those events, the Optimizely clients will send event data to Optimizely Experimentation's backends.
- The Event API – You can send event data directly to Optimizely Experimentation using the Event API by making a POST request with the proper payload to the endpoint:
<https://logx.optimizely.com/v1/events>. This is especially helpful for tracking events that would otherwise be difficult to do through Optimizely Experimentation's products, like tracking offline conversions.
