Defining real-time container triggers

Suggest edit Updated on September 21, 2021

Real-time containers manage content in real-time channels. Adding a real-time container as a trigger enables it to be called by an external channel. When a container is loaded, for example, when an individual views an ad for an action in a predefined placement on the web channel, it triggers the next best action.
