Invoke event trigger manually

You can select the Via console trigger operation while creating an event trigger to allow invoking the event trigger on rows manually using the Hasura console (available after version v1.0.0-beta.1).

In the Data -> [table-name] -> Browse Rows tab, clicking the invoke trigger button next to any row lets you invoke “manual event triggers” configured on the table with that row as payload (the button will be shown only if you have any triggers configured):

Click on the event trigger you want to run and a modal will pop up with the request and response.

Request and response of event trigger

When creating an event trigger over the create_event_trigger metadata API, you can set the argument enable_manual to true.

Then you can use the invoke_event_trigger metadata API to invoke triggers manually:

POST /v1/query HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json
X-Hasura-Role: admin

   "type" : "invoke_event_trigger",
   "args" : {
      "name": "send_email",
      "payload": {}
