I'm looking for a good way to monitor the Platform Events being published by our org, so I can check that they are actually being published and have the expected content.

On Azure, I could use the Microsoft Azure Service Bus Explorer to peek at (or retrieve or add to) messages in a Queue or Topic.

Is there anything similar for the Salesforce Event Bus?

    I have been reading about a lot of cool platform event monitoring implementations with Heroku. Might be something to look into, here is an example by Heroku github.com/heroku-examples/salesforce-streams-nodejs – Max Goldfarb Oct 9 '20 at 19:54
  • @MaxGoldfarb, cheers for the suggestion. I'll need to take a closer look at this. :-) – Brian Kessler Oct 9 '20 at 21:34

    @MaxGoldfarb, Looked at it.... Unless I'm missing something, as-is, there is no support for monitoring custom events and it does not tell me about the contents of the event. BUT, I didn't know "Change Data Capture" which could actually be really useful for us. Cheers again for this! – Brian Kessler Oct 10 '20 at 17:38
