View Module Events History

The Module Events History displays the entire history of a module in the selected environment. You can view input data source records the module has received, module items, and each run the module has performed.

Beyond simply viewing the event history of a module, the Module Events History is an indispensable troubleshooting tool, allowing you to inspect the smallest triggers and actions in your module workflow to determine what logic was activated and the cause of any errors or unexpected behavior.

View Event Types

You can view any of three event types in the left panel of the Module Events History screen:

  • Data Sources - Input data source records monitored by the module. These events represent a data source record being created or updated in the input source. For example, if your input source is a Google Drive folder, the addition of a new file in that folder would display as a data source event.

    You can select a data source event to view all the fields in the data source record, whether those fields are mapped and used in the module or not.

  • Module Items - Module items generated and processed by the module. These events represent the creation of or updates to items in the module. For example, if your input source is a form, you would see the addition of newly-submitted forms and updates to those form fields as module item events.

    You can select a module item event to view all the fields collected for the module item for a given event.

  • Flow Runs - Instances of an item running through the module workflow. These events represent each time a module trigger is activated and is processed by the workflow logic that follows the trigger. For example, if your input source is an Intercom instance, you might have triggers for both when a new Conversation is created and when a reply is added to an existing Conversation; activation of either trigger creates a flow run event.

    You can select a flow run event to view the Flow Investigation for that event, including which trigger was activated and what logic after it successfully ran or failed.

    The Flow Investigation is a key tool when troubleshooting module workflows.

Filter Results

Select the filter button, filter.png, to filter events by various parameters:

  • Trigger - Trigger that was activated.

  • Background Process - Background processes run through the module.

    For information about background processes, see Runtime Jobs.

  • Version - Module version.

  • Has errors - Whether the event contains any errors.

View Events Detail

To view details about a particular event, including the fields whose values changed, the triggers and actions that were activated, and details about any errors that occurred, select an event in the left panel and view the Event Detail panel on the right:

Inspect Action/Trigger Details

To get a closer look at a specific action or trigger in an event, select the Status for that action or trigger. A detail window displays for the selected action or trigger:

Scroll through the fields in the action/trigger detail window to confirm the creation of fields or check whether the values of certain fields changed as part of the action.

Troubleshoot Action and Trigger Errors

If an error occurs in the event, an error message displays at the top of the Action Details panel. Select the Error Status to see details for the action or trigger where the error occurred:

View the field values before and after the action to pinpoint unexpected behavior:

Additionally, you can select the Request and Response tabs, where relevant, to view the raw JSON of the API calls made for the action. The details provided by the API endpoint can provide valuable troubleshooting information.
