Event filters

Use event filters to narrow the conditions under which Event actions are executed. Event filters work by filtering on properties related to the event.

To get started, Create an event filter.

Available properties include:

  • Arguments passed into the target system by the trigger event

  • The target system's configuration

  • The output of Filters passed into the event's associated mapping or job

  • Etc.

For example, in a user create mapping event for an Active Directory target system, you could filter the event to only execute its actions when users are created in a certain OU. Or, another common use case is to send notifications to users when certain fields are updated in their user accounts (e.g., email address or phone number).

Tip

Event filters should not be confused with regular Filters. They are two completely different types of objects.
