Event triggers

Event triggers are used to schedule reload and user synchronization tasks. There are two types of triggers:

  • Composite event

    This event is triggered on the condition of other events succeeding or failing, also known as task event trigger.

  • Schema event

    This event is triggered according to a schedule (once-only as well as all repeating triggers.)

Schema event triggers can be applied to both reload tasks and user synchronization tasks. Composite event triggers can only be applied to reload tasks.

The easiest way to create or update an event trigger for a task is to configure one through the QMC and retrieve the configuration through the QRS API. This event trigger configuration can then be applied programmatically to a task.
