I started with Pardot recently, now we are trying to perform an API callout as soon as Prospect get created, so whenever a new prospect get entered through any source (via API, forms etc.) we need to perform an API callout to a third party API and get the data and then feed that data into prospect record like update operation.
I tried several ways to perform this but so far I didn't get any way by which it can be real-time. I tried Automation rules, but there is no such action available which you can do. As an alternative we can create some operation like Task Creation in salesforce and then write down a trigger or platform event to do the callout and perform that operation. But automation rules are proactive and it runs on a regular interval not very real time second the salesforce task can't be created until the prospect is assigned, so in short it is not real-time.
Anybody have any suggestion for using salesforce ecosystem or Pardot to achieve this.
