5- Send Your First Event

Copy your write api key from web ui and replace with placeholder in example code below. Copy and run sample code below in your terminal window.

curl --request POST 'https://track.eventbunker.io/post' \
--header 'x-eventbunker-write-key: <YOUR-WRITE-API-KEY>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{
"event_name": "my_first_event_name",
"timestamp": "2021-06-26T14:48:00.000",
"customer_identifier": "your_app_customer_id",
"example_string_field": "abc.com",
"example_number_field": 123,
"example_array_field": ["cat", "dog"]
"example_bool_field": true
}'

That's it! Congratulations, you have sent the first event into your project. You can implement this request in any language since it is just a http post request to EventBunker api.

Api scales up automatically, so you do not need to use batch requests, you can send as many requests per second as you want.
