Event handlers

General

Event handlers react to events in Intrexx applications. In this way, they represent the link between the applications in the portal and the additional process steps that follow them. Actions and conditions can be connected to an event handler as following process elements.

Data group event handler

A data group event handler reacts to the following data group event in Intrexx applications:

  • After inserting a data record

  • After refreshing a data record

  • Before deleting a data record

  • A data record that is presented repeatedly via a timer

Timer event handler

A timer event handler can only be configured in connection with the global timer or a timer action. A global timer or a timer action creates time-related event that react to the timer event handler:

  • Resubmission of a data record via a timer from a timer action

  • Timer event from a timer action without a data group relation

  • Submission of one or more data records via a global timer

  • Timer event from a global timer

The timer event handler has the same general properties as the data group event handler.

Groovy event handler

A Groovy event handler can react to any kind of event. On the Server events tab, the events created by the server can be selected. In the Groovy script, these events can be more finely filtered if desired. If the script returns the Boolean value true (in the Groovy sense), the event will be processed, otherwise it will not be.

IMAP event handler

This handler reacts to IMAP event sources defined in the process.

Generic event handler

Java classes, even from third party providers, can function as generic event handlers as long as they implement the "IWorkflowEventHandler" interface. The "UserWorkflowEventHandler" is provided with Intrexx. With it, the following user events can be reacted to:

  • A subsequent event to a job or task plan

  • As event that will be executed by the user via the web (via JavaScript)
