VISO – create and apply triggers

Overview

In order to automate commands and act on events, open the triggers repository and create triggered events. You can set different events and set their thresholds, and selectively apply different triggered events accordingly.

There are three steps needed in order to complete the triggered event creation:

  • Create the command which will be triggered (See separate guides for this process on all other commands such as, lock, file transfer, messages, policy and so on)
  • Create the trigger and set the threshold as explained below
  • Select a group and tie up between the Trigger and the command as explained below

 

Setting up a new trigger

Open the “Triggers” repository and select “+” to add new
