GroundRunners can watch the file system and react to changes to a file or set of files that match the filter. This feature allows Chains to be executed when a particular Event Type occurs to a file.
|Name||Set the name of the trigger|
|Connection||List of GroundRunner Connections|
|Directory||The directory to watch for file events|
|File Name Filter||An explicit file name or use of wildcards such as multiple characters (*) and or single characters (?) are supported|
|Sensitivity (in seconds)||The number of seconds to wait after a particular event has occurred|
|Trigger Active Toggle||Toggle switch to turn trigger on / off|
File Triggers and GroundRunners
Only OneCloud GroundRunners support File Triggers.
Chain Triggers must be the first Command
Chain Triggers must be the designated Start Command.
Please note that when creating a file trigger, the parameter Directory to watch for file events needs to be set. The input box actively reads the directory structure of the chosen GroundRunner and it is necessary to type each directory in its entirety before moving to the next directory. Once the desired directory path has been created, use the <TAB> key to move to the next field.
In the following example, a text file is edited and saved. This event invokes the OneCloud File Trigger and the results of the change are subsequently viewed with a List File Content.
