Events allow HelloID Administrators to trigger one or more tasks when certain items in HelloID are created, updated, or deleted. For example, when a user is created in HelloID, events can be configured to send an email to that user, create a folder for them in OneDrive, and much more. Much the same as automation tasks, you may launch custom PowerShell during an event as well.
Navigate to Automation > Events in the HelloID Administrator Dashboard to see an overview of all triggers and events in your organization's HelloID environment. The view is split into two tabs: Configuration and History.
The configuration tab is where you can configure event hooks for each of the predefined HelloID triggers. You may add as many event hooks as you would like with varying criteria. Each event hook, in turn, may have any number of tasks associated with it.
The following information is displayed for event configuration:
HelloID comes with a set of predefined triggers. These are User, Group, Person, and Folder. Each of these triggers can have any number of event hooks associated with them. For example, you can have event hooks for when a HelloID user is created, updated, and deleted.
Each event hook can have any number of tasks associated to it. For example, when a HelloID user is created, you can send an email to that user and create a OneDrive folder for them.
Tasks are associated to events. HelloID provides a sizable library of configurable tasks for a variety of target systems. You may also launch custom PowerShell for added flexibility and power.
