Adding Operations

Updated in 8.7

You can add multiple operations when configuring Functions or defining the Programming section of Actions and Triggers.

Alloy Navigator supports the following types of operations:

  • Update Field - assigns a value to an object field. For details, see Update Field.

  • E-mail Notification - specifies an E-mail Notification to be sent. For details, see E-mail Notification.

  • Push Notification - specifies a Push Notification to be sent. For details, see Push Notification.

  • Execute Function - specifies a Function to be executed. For details, see Execute Function.

  • Create Object - creates a new object and performs any operations on the newly created object. For details, see Create Object.

  • Act on Related Object - performs operations on related objects. For details, see Act on Related Object.

  • Relate To - adds a relation between the current object and another one. For details, see Relate To.

  • External Command - runs PowerShell commands and scripts. For details, see External Command.

  • Message Box - opens a pop-up dialog box that displays a particular message to the user. For details, see Message Box.

  • Execute SQL - runs a SQL expression or script that queries the database at runtime. For details, see Execute SQL.

  • Add Attachments - attaches files to an object. For details, see Add Attachments.

  • Abort - terminates the current Action or Trigger without making any changes. For details, see Abort.

  • Comment - adds a comment to operations or groups of operations.

NOTE: All operations except for E-mail Notifications are executed in the order they appear in the list. To reorder operations, use the Move Up and Move Down buttons.

For a complex workflow configuration that involves the creation and modification of other objects, you may need to use variables. A variable in Alloy Navigator is a named item for holding a single data value. You can use variables to pass values to other operations within the Function or the Programming section of the Action or Trigger.

  • Declare Variable - declares a variable.

  • Set Variable - assigns a value to the variable.
