Configure trigger

Hello,

How does is possible to set task (ex. task1) dependency on successful of one of two others tasks? (ex. Succeful task2 OR Succeful task3) ?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hi @yannick_tallade,

If you have Publisher, you can set a trigger based on an External Event and you also have Supporting Tasks > External Programs.  So theoretically you could write a .bat file with the OR logic and then trigger your Task1 dependency on the .bat file.

If you have only a server you could only set a single trigger for a task which means you couldn't apply the mentioned requirement. By using a publisher there are more possibilities but I don't know the details.

Nevertheless with more or less efforts and some intermediate steps which may store their successful/failure within any parameter / tables you may also create a seamless task-chain.

You can have multiple triggers, each trigger has 1 Start on task event that it's dependent on and or's the triggers together, no?

This would be different then 1 trigger that has multiple "Tasks" in a single "Trigger - Start on task event"
