Parameters

General Properties

Property

Description

Logon Type

Specifies which user log on events should be monitored by this condition. The available options are:

  • Any user logon - If enabled, the workflow will run when any user logs on (default).

  • Specific user logon - If enabled, the workflow will run when any of the specified users log on.

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

Behavior Properties

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.
