Conditions allow you to define more narrowly the trigger for an Event Rule. Conditions are optional; you do not have to define a condition on an Event Rule to make it trigger an Action (Once an Event Rule is triggered and assuming all conditions are met, EFT Server launches one or more user-definable Actions, such as executing a command, sending an e-mail, offloading a file, etc. or a combination of multiple Actions.), but Conditions allow fine control over when an Action can take place.
You can further fine-tune each event trigger to execute only if certain Conditions are met. These optional Conditions act like filters or compound IF statements so that IF a specific event occurs and IF a condition is met, then an action is executed. For example, an event trigger that is called whenever a file is uploaded can be fine-tuned to trigger only if that file’s extension is .txt and nothing else.
Refer to the List of Conditions for the Conditions supported by EFT Server. Conditions that require you to specify a value or parameter have further instructions with their description in the List of Conditions. For a list of which Conditions are available with each event trigger, refer to Which Conditions are Available with Which Events.
Conditions are NOT REQUIRED for an Event Rule to work. In its base form, the event trigger itself is a sort of condition, therefore you can execute actions when/if an event triggers, without adding any additional conditions.
