Operations

Executing a job#

  • select Processes entity

  • select Jobs entity
  • double click on the job to view its corresponding log

Creating File System Trigger#

  • select Triggers entity
  • click on New button from the Action Panel
  • select File System Trigger in the New Trigger dialog and click on Create

  • configure trigger

FieldDescription
Process to InvokeSelect the Process to be associated with this Trigger
Folder to MonitorSelect the file system folder to monitor for this Trigger
Include SubfoldersCheck this if you want to monitor the events inside sub-folders of the monitored folder selected in the previous field
DescriptionProvide a brief description of this Trigger for your future reference
Events to MonitorCheck the events to monitor. You have the following options:
  • Created: Check this if you want to activate the Trigger whenever a file was created or copied or moved inside monitored folder
  • Modified: Check this if you want to activate the Trigger whenever a file inside monitored folder gets modified
  • Deleted: Check this if you want to activate the Trigger whenever a file gets deleted inside monitored folder
  • Renamed: Check this if you want to activate the Trigger whenever a file gets renamed inside monitored folder
  • Consolidate EventsCheck this option if you want to consolidate selected multiple events, happening within a minimal interval, into one event. This option will enable the Process to be executed only once in case of multiple events occurring at the same instance.
    For example, when two files get pasted simultaneously inside the monitored folder, we will receive two separate events and hence the created Trigger will be activated twice. The multiple activations lead to the associated Process executed twice sequentially. This option lets you consolidate events happening simultaneously into one Trigger and thereby calling Process only once.
    FilterYou can specify the wildcard filter if you want to trigger based on certain file types only.
    For example, specifying *.pdf here would trigger only when a PDF file is either Created/Modified/Deleted/Renamed under monitored folder(s).
