Is there any way I can trigger the journey builder event via API, the same way you do using automation.
I know you can fire event using this REST call https://code.exacttarget.com/apis-sdks/rest-api/v1/routes.html#postEvent but you have to send contact details/data in the same call. Salesforce have callout limits so can not use this if contacts are more than 50 where as we have more than this.
Scenario: I am adding multiple contacts to Data Extension via REST call which linked to event and then to journey builder.
When I finish the adding to contact data let say 2 contacts (actually some time these are in 100s), now I need to add these contacts to journey builder, so I need to fire the event.
I know you can use automation studio with Fire Event Activity and run once or schedule it and all new contacts added to Journey Builder. Rune once is manual job and minimum you can schedule is 30 minutes using two automations and we have to add to journey builder instantly or in less than five minutes.
Please guide me how or what is best way to handle this.
