With EFT's Event Rules, you can configure EFT to perform an action automatically when a specific event occurs. You can use AWE workflows to design scripts, batch files, macros, or any other code-intensive process using an easy drag-and-drop interface.
Similar to EFT's Commands, EFT's Advanced Workflows add additional automation capabilities, allowing you to add scripting and variables to workflows, then add these reusable workflows to Event Rules. A workflow is a series of steps that can perform file transfers, batch data processing, application testing, and so on, set to run automatically when started by some event. A workflow can be composed of a single step or hundreds of steps.
You create a workflow, set priorities, security, error handling, and other properties for workflows from within the AWE interface. A workflow can be run, changed, or deleted through the AWE interface.
When you click the Advanced Workflows node in the Server tree, the right pane displays a list of defined workflows sorted in alphabetical order. If no workflows are defined, you can right-click the Advanced Workflows node to create a new workflow. You can edit or remove workflows in the right pane.
You can insert Expressions into a workflow to resolve dynamic data at runtime. Expressions can include functions, variables, constants, and operators. The Server reads the text found between percentage signs and then replaces the Expression (including the percentage signs) at runtime. For example, the expression %USER.LOGIN% is replaced with the user logon name.
The basic steps of creating an Advanced Workflow are simple:
Create a workflow.
Add steps to the workflow in the AWE Task Builder.
Add the workflow to one or more Event Rules.
