To make it easy for you to see what you’ve created, we’ve embedded a couple easy-to-access ways for you to access your event data & schema. 

Method 1: Find your event's schema via the Event Inspector

Step 1: Log in to keen.io/home 

Step 2: Select the Project ID/Name that you sent your events to

Step 3: Go to Streams (in the upper left navigation) 

Step 4: From the Event Streams section, select the name of the event collection you want to view. (In this case we’re looking at “purchases”). 

Step 5: Choose to view your “Last 10 Events”, this allows you to view newly sent events. 

     Pro Tip: clicking on the timestamp of the most recent event will show the exact event you sent! 

Step 6: Choose to view your “Event Properties”, check that the data type you meant to send is reflected here. (i.e. integers you need for math are nums, strings are strings)

Looking for a data point that has not arrived? 

  • Go ahead and select the refresh button to fetch new data. 

Note: It can take a few minutes for your events to arrive, depending on network latency. In the case there is an active incident causing a slight delay, we believe in absolute transparency. That’s why our status and stats are public here: check for incidents
