The Manual trigger executes a rule whenever the "Run" button is clicked. No events or schedules needed!
You can trigger a rule directly from the rule detail view or the rule navigator.
Manual trigger configuration
Select the user that will be used to execute the rule. It can be chosen from one of the following options:
- Current user
- Selected user
The manual trigger is the best choice if you want to have full control over a rule execution. Typical use cases include recurring housekeeping tasks or one-off actions.
Can't execute the manual trigger? Make sure to check out the rule statuses page.
