Trigger Variables

You can use a trigger system variable anytime you work with an automation task that is launched with a trigger.

The trigger value is determined based on the type of trigger event.

Using trigger variables is particularly helpful when multiple trigger events are used with an automation task. The variable provides information about the name of the file, folder, window, or service name for the trigger event.

For other uses, this system variable does not contain a value.

The following table provides the return values and description for the trigger variable.

Name Return Value Description
Trigger Value String Returns the name of File/Folder/Window/Service for which a trigger is fired, depending on the trigger type that was executed.
