Email Listener in Orchestrator For Starting Job

Hello Team,

Consider a scenario where the job should start based an incoming email of a specific subject. This scenario is very common and also having a robot listen to emails constantly 24/7 is a lot of wastage in terms of bot usage as they just used for listening.

Rather if we can have a way to configure an email inbox in the orchestrator to kick start a job it’ll be really helpful and bring a lot of savings in bot usage.

Additionally to do some additional conditions based on the email, the email body, subject and other information can be passed a parameter to the job and can be handed in the process itself.

Thank you for your suggestion. I added it to our internal ideas tracker for our team to consider.

You might be able to do that now depending on Email Platform. Something like Exchange or Outlook could be enhanced with Script that could check incoming email and based on Subject call a REST API (Orchestrator) that could start a Job…?
