Here is how I would do it.

You need to create a module and a plugin for that.

In app/code/Vendor/Module/etc/di.xml you need the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <type name="Magento\Framework\Event\ManagerInterface">
        <plugin name="list_dispatched_event" type="Vendor\Module\Plugin\ListDispatchedEvents" sortOrder="10" disabled="false"/>

Then in your app/code/Vendor/Module/Plugin/ListDispatchedEvents.php file:


namespace Vendor\Module\Plugin;
class ListDispatchedEvents
    public function beforeDispatch($subject, $eventName, array $data = [])
        $writer = new \Zend\Log\Writer\Stream(BP . '/var/log/test.log');
        $logger = new \Zend\Log\Logger();


Then I suggest you disable that module until you reach the page where you can click the Place Order button. Re enable module, click the button, disable the module once the the page has redirected you to the success page and check the var/log/test.log file.


All events go through Magento\Framework\Event\Manager::dispatch.
you can add a logger inside that method or build a before plugin to log the $eventName variable passed to the method. Then go through the checkout process and see what's logged.
