If Action

Specify the value that will be compared against another value and the method of comparison.

If Action conditionally executes a group of Actions or another, depending whether the condition is true or false. The condition is specified by providing two operands and their relationship. Each operand can be either fixed value or variable obtained from Trigger or other Actions. If operands are in specified relation (condition is true), the If Action will execute the group of nested Actions. User may choose to add Else Action to introduce a group of Actions that will be run if operands are not in specified relation (condition is false). Optionally, the second condition can be added in both conjunctive or disjunctive way (either both conditions have to be matched or any one of them).

Compare propertiesDetails
If operand 1Specify the first of two operands of a condition. Both fixed values and variables are permitted.
CompareChoose the way in which operands need to relate in order for condition to be true. If Action can test the following relationships between operands:
  • Is equal
  • Is greater than
  • Is greater than or equal to
  • Is less than
  • Is less than or equal to
  • Starts with
  • Contains
  • Ends with
  • Is longer than
  • Length is equal to
  • Is shorter than
  • Is empty
  • Matches regular expression
  • Contains regular expression
If Action also supports the negation of above relations with the inverse truth function, namely: Is not equal, Is not greater than, Is not greater than and is not equal to, Is not less than, Is not less than and is not equal to, Does not starts with, Does not contain, Does not ends with, Is not longer than, Length is not equal to, Is not shorter than, Is not empty, Does not match regular expression and Does not contain regular expression.
Operand 2Specify the second of two operands of a condition. Both fixed values and variables are permitted.
AdditionallySpecify the additional condition:
  • None - only primary condition is used.
  • AND - both conditions have to be true.
  • OR - either condition has to be true.
