On the Data Health page, the Event browser (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) tab enables you to monitor the performance and health of your data by tracking the latest events sent to the database. It’s especially useful for when you want to focus on specific validation criteria affecting your data health.
The Event browser only shows syntactic validation errors, meaning it looks for missing or incorrectly formatted information inside individual events. It won’t be able to detect errors associated to whole sessions or inconsistencies between events. For example, it won’t be possible to see if a click event is associated to a search event that doesn’t exist.
