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).

If operand 1 Specify the first of two operands of a condition. Both fixed values and variables are permitted.
Compare Choose the way in which operands need to relate in order for condition to be true. If Action can test the following relationships between operands · View examples

Operand 2 Specify the second of two operands of a condition. Both fixed values and variables are permitted.
Additionally Specify the additional condition:
  • None · only primary condition is used.
  • AND · both conditions have to be true.
  • OR · either condition has to be true.
Variable WizardVariable Wizard buttonUse dynamic data input—substitute a parameter from a file, web, connected Trigger, other Actions, date and time presets, etc.

  • If integration and auditing—Variables (dynamic data) and Events (recorded activity). Access the left-hand side operand, right-hand side operand, selected comparison, and whether the operands matched using the selected comparison method. Additionally, information events, indicating whether the condition holds, are logged.

Branching alternatives…

While If–then logic is the most widely used approach to split a Task into two execution paths, there are additional methods to branch an automated workflow · Action flow explained


  • See details on regular expression usage for more information on regex compare functions, namely, matches regular expression, contains regular expression, does not match regular expression, and does not contain 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, does not contain regular expression, and does not contain any of these characters.
