Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that makes it easy to connect applications together using data from your own applications, integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, and AWS services. EventBridge delivers a stream of real-time data from event sources, and routes that data to targets like AWS Lambda.
Sigma IDE currently supports publishing such events via Lambda functions to one or more Event Buses that exists in your AWS account.
If you need to trigger your Lambda function based on events from an Event Bus, please refer to Event Pattern Rules in the CloudWatch Events trigger component.

To publish events to EventBridge from a Lambda function, first drag an EventBridge resource from the resources panel and drop on the required line of the lambda code editor. Then on the configuration panel, select Put Events as the Operation.
After that, the Add Event button can be used to add one or more events to be published via this operation. Each such events should have the following fields.
|Event Bus||The event bus that should receive the event|
|Source||The source of the event|
