When I send Lead events to facebook through your Facebook Conversion API in my server container, its registered as a custom event. Is it possible to get it as a standard lead event? You say in your tutorial, that you are trying to match event names with standard facebook events. What do i need to name my event, so it is registered as a standard lead event in facebook?
Also, if i use GA4 standard event names, the lead never arrives in the facebook event testing tool, but if i use event names that i come up with myself, it will show up in the facebook event testing tool.
Event name: generate_lead (does not show up in testing tool)
Event name generate_lead_test (does show up in testing tool, but ofc as a custom event)
The pageview event shows perfectly, both from browser and server. the event name used for pageview is “page_view”, which is neither a google standard event nor facebook standard event, so im a little puzzled why that is working perfectly.

I just got the following error message in facebook
Your server is sending an invalid fbp, ip_address parameters value for your Lead event. This may be because there was an error in the parameter value.
This may cause issues with the attribution and delivery optimization of ad campaigns that are using this event.
