There are quite a few ways to trigger the event:

- Issue TRIGGER command.

And you can access ESP thru many different methods, here are some commonly used ones:

From mainframe:
- Issue MVS comamnd against ESP STC, like:
/F esp_stc,command
- Run ESP in batch JCL;
- Call ESP (which itself can be considered as an API) from REXX.

From distributed platform:
- Run ESPlmi utility: it's in the agent installation folder
- Run ESPmgr utility: it's in the agent installation folder
- Use REST API.
