Logon Condition

Description

Monitors for a specific user or any user to log onto the assigned agent workstation and evaluates as TRUE when the condition is met. The workflow starts when AutoMate detects the desktop of the agent computer. This condition can be used in the following manners:

Practical Usage

Starts tasks that should run when the user logs on.

Description

Logon Type

Options

Specifies the type of log on related condition that should be monitored on the assigned agent. The available options are:

  • Any user logon - If enabled, the condition evaluates to TRUE when any user logs onto the agent workstation being monitored. If this parameter is enabled, the Specific user logon parameter is ignored.

  • Specific user logon - If enabled, the condition evaluates to TRUE when one of the specified users logs onto the agent workstation being monitored.  If this parameter is enabled, the Any user logon parameter is ignored.

NOTE: Multiple users may be specified by delimiting entries with a semi-colon (i.e. User1;User2;User3).

Behavior

The Behavior tab properties dictate how the system should react upon the occurrence of a condition. These properties are significant in determining whether the AutoMate Condition should act as a trigger object (used to fire off workflow execution), wait object (used to suspend workflow execution) or conditional (decision making) object.

Additional Notes

AMTrigger

When the Logon condition is used to trigger workflow execution, it automatically creates an AMTrigger dataset which can be used much like the datasets created by the SQL Query and E-Mail actions. The fields that AMTrigger generates can be used to determine properties of the object that caused the workflow to launch, such as the type of trigger, when the trigger was activated and what system event or condition took place to activate the trigger. Along with a collection of global AMTrigger fields that are created and populated by every instance of AMTrigger, a unique set of AMTrigger fields exclusive to each AutoMate trigger are created as well.

To view AMTrigger values exclusive to the Logon condition, see AMTrigger - Logon.

AMCondition

When the Logon condition is used in the middle of a workflow as wait or conditional object, it automatically creates an AMCondition dataset. Similar to AMTrigger, the fields that AMCondition generates can be used to determine properties of the object that caused the condition to activate. Along with a collection of global AMCondition fields that are created and populated by every instance of AMCondition, a unique set of AMCondition fields exclusive to each AutoMate condition are created as well.

To view AMCondition values exclusive to the Logon condition, see AMCondition - Logon.

NOTE: A full list of AMTrigger and AMCondition fields exclusive to each trigger/condition can be viewed from Expression Builder by expanding the Objects folder and selecting the desired object from either the Triggers or Conditions folder.
