Global events

Your instance has a global function called global_events() that triggers from a business rule when certain conditions occur.

This function triggers when your instance is:
  • Inserting new records
  • Updating existing records
  • Adding comments to an existing record
  • Assigning a record to a user
  • Exceeding a record's inactive timer

For example, if you add the script global.events(current) to a business rule on the change_request table, the instance automatically configures the following events:

  • change_request.inserted
  • change_request.updated
  • change_request.commented
  • change_ request.assigned
  • change_ request.inactive

The business rule for global events on the change_request table looks like this:
