To create a trigger for a plan, you specify the time and frequency that the plan is to be executed. You can also apply overrides to any inherited parameters.

NOTE: Plan owners can create triggers for their plans. Other users must have the appropriate privileges to create triggers for the plan.

  • Timezone: Select the timezone for the time that you are specifying in the trigger's schedule. 
  • Frequency: Specify how frequently the plan is triggered:
    • On: You can specify multiple entries to trigger the plan more frequently.
    • cron: Set the schedule according to cron syntax. 
  • Parameter overrides: See below.
  • To add another trigger, click Add another trigger.
  • To save your changes, click Save.

Parameter Overrides

As needed, you can specify overrides to parameters inherited from the tasks in a plan. Specified values are applied only when the plan run is executed based on this trigger. 

NOTE: In a trigger, displayed parameter values may be inherited from the plan that is being triggered. To ensure that the proper value is used, you should set a specific value for the override in the trigger. This is a known issue.

To apply a parameter override:

  • Locate the parameter to override.
  • Verify that the parameter is sourced from the correct object. 
  • Click Override.
  • Enter the value to apply. 
  • Repeat as needed for other parameter overrides.
  • Click Save.

For more information, see Overview of Parameterization.

Enable or Disable Trigger

After a trigger has been saved, you can enable or disable it when the trigger node in the plan is selected.

  • To disable the trigger, click the slider.

    NOTE: If you disable a trigger, no new scheduled executions of the tasks in the plan occur. You can still manually trigger plan runs.

  • To make changes to the trigger, click Edit.
