A Triggered Action allows a specification to transition to a State once a specified file has been created.
Using a Triggered Action allows the default order of generating outputs to be manipulated to better suit your needs.
To create a Triggered Action:
Open the project in DriveWorks Administrator and go to Stage 4: Output Rules> Documents
There are 2 items that require values entering:
The rule must equal or evaluate to a Transition that exists in the Specification Flow.
|"Manufacturing"||Will place the specification into the Manufacturing transition.|
The rule must equal or evaluate to a Full Path and File Name of a file being generated by a prior State.
|"\\DriveWorksData\Files\Housing "&OrderNumberReturn&".slddrw"||The file \\DriveWorksData\Files\Housing 1234.slddrw will trigger the transition once it is created.|
|DWSpecificationFullPath&"\Housing "&DWSpecification&".slddrw"||The file \\DriveWorksData\Files\Housing 1234.slddrw will trigger the transition once it is created.|
Tags are relevant when two or more DriveWorks Autopilot machines are deployed.
Tags allow control over which DriveWorks Autopilot processes the required information for a specification.
The result of the Tags rule must match a tag set in DriveWorks Autopilot.
|If(HighPriorityCheckBox=True,"High","Low")||When the checkbox HighPriority is checked will result in the tag High being applied to the parameter. Otherwise the tag low will be applied.|

Triggered Actions allow DriveWorks to wait until a designated file exists before transitioning a specification.
