Adding event triggers

  • Updated: 2021/12/22

    Adding event triggers

    Any bot with triggers can be associated with users or role to enable event trigger. Control Room user (or role) with Manage event triggers permission can add event triggers.

    All the bots a user creates are displayed in the Private tab. When the user checks in a bot to a public folder, it is displayed in the Public tab.

    A private event trigger is created when a user with the Manage event triggers permission adds a trigger to a bot but does not check in this bot to a public folder. Private event triggers are listed under the Manage > Event triggers page. However, if the user checks in the associated bot to a public folder, it is no longer displayed under the Event triggers page.
