Triggers explanation


Can I know the difference between time based trigger and queue based trigger how it will be work???

Clear cut explanation but easy way to be understand

Hi @siva_sankar

There are two types of trigger
Time Triggers and Queue Triggers

Time Triggers: Enable you to schedule a recurrent time to start a job. Input values for processes that support input and output parameters can be managed at this level as well.

Queue Trigger: Can instantly start a process upon the trigger creation or whenever you add a new item to a queue. The trigger runs in the environment associated with the selected process

Check the below website to know more about triggers

Hope it helps!!

Hi @siva_sankar

Please go through this doc


Time-Based Trigger:

Purpose: This trigger is used to schedule the execution of a process at specific intervals or times.
How it works:
You can set up a time-based trigger to run a job daily, weekly, monthly, or at specific times of the day.
It allows you to define a recurrence pattern, specifying when and how often a process should run.
Useful for tasks that need to be executed on a regular schedule, such as daily reports or data backups.
Example: Running a data extraction process every day at midnight.
Queue-Based Trigger:

Purpose: This trigger is used to start a process when a new item is added to a specified Orchestrator queue.
How it Works:
A queue is a storage area in Orchestrator where you can queue items (transactions) to be processed by robots.
When a new item is added to the designated queue, a job is triggered to process that specific item.
Useful for scenarios where work items are added dynamically, and you want the process to start as soon as there is work to be done.
Example: Processing customer orders as they are added to a queue.

I suggest doing the free training at as it will teach you these basic things.
