Real-Time Integration is the mechanism that sends transaction XML to a 3rd party server when a transition rule is fired. This is the most standard, out-of-the-box CPQ Cloud functionality for implementing integration.

For more information, see Standard XML Output for the basic XML structure. See attachments for a Real-Time Integration Sample Document XML.
