API – Trigger an Event
action – event
This call is used to trigger a custom event against a specific record. See the section on Automation using Rules and Events for further discussion on the use of this mechanism.
Data may also be included in the Event call – this data gets passed as input data to the Action Script on any Rule triggered by the Event (see the section on Automation using Rules and Events for a discussion of this as a worked example).
