Trigger

A Trigger must be assigned to a Task for it to be executed. To define a Trigger, select the Target computers or groups on which a Task should be executed. With your target(s) selected, set the trigger conditions to execute the task at a particular time or event. Additionally, you can use Advanced settings - Throttling to further fine-tune the Trigger, if required.

Basic

Enter basic information about the Trigger in the Description field and then click Target.

Target

The Target window allows you to specify the clients (individual computers or groups) that are the recipients of this task.

Trigger

Trigger determines what event triggers the task.

As Soon As Possible - Executes the task as soon as the client connects to ESET Cloud Administrator Server and receives the task. If the task cannot be performed until the Expiration date, the task will be removed from the queue - the task will not be deleted, but it will not be executed.

Scheduled - Executes the task at a selected time.

Event Log Trigger - Executes the task based on events specified here. This trigger is invoked when a certain event occurs in logs. Define the log type, logical operator and filtering criteria that will trigger the task.

Joined Dynamic Group Trigger - This trigger executes the task when a client joins the Dynamic Group selected in the target option. If a Static Group or individual client(s) have been selected, this option will not be available.

CRON Expression - You can also set your trigger interval using a CRON Expression.

Advanced settings - Throttling

Throttling is used to restrict a task from being executed if a task is triggered by a frequently occurring event, for example the Event Log Trigger or the Joined Dynamic Group Trigger (see above). For more information, see the Throttling chapter.

Click Finish when you have defined the recipients of this task and the triggers that execute the task.
