The platform supports two types of triggers to run action plans: Alerts and Schedules.

To run your action plan based on metrics, select an existing alert with these steps:

  1. Go to Control → Action plans → edit action plan
  2. Go to Alerts
  3. Click the + Add button and select the Alert. For details about creating an alert, see Manage Alerts

To run your action plan automatically at selected dates and times, create a schedule trigger with these steps:

  1. Go to Control → Action plans → edit action plan
  2. Go to Schedules
  3. Enter the details of the schedule

  • To run the action plan at intervals of a fixed number of seconds within a set timeframe:
    1. Select an Interval schedule
    2. Enter the following parameters
      1. Interval seconds: the number of seconds from when the action plan excution starts to when it will start again
      2. Repeat count: the number of times to run the action plan. A value of 0 means repeat forever
      3. Start time: date and time
      4. End time: date and time
  1. After you create an interval schedule, the platform will display the execution count of how many times the action plan has run. If the repeat count is 0, the execution count is null
  • To run an action plan as specified using a Cron-type schedule, select an Advanced schedule and use the calendar selector.
