Create a new trigger filter or select existing one.
Add trigger action "Send e-mail". In the “Actions” section click Add → CredoID → Send e-mail.
Fields will use global configuration of your e-mail if you have set them in "Settings → General → Notifications". Otherwise, fields will be empty.
You can also use individual e-mail settings for each action i.e, if you want to send e-mail for certain action from different e-mail provider.
Fill in required fields.
Global e-mail configuration can be done in "Settings → General → Notifications"
Outgoing e-mail configuration like SMTP and SSL/TLS is provided by your e-mail provider.
You can add variables to e-mail template or to a subject line - click icon in bottom right corner of “Send e-mail” section.
Variables are also used in
Variables can be used to pass various information such as
event type etc.
In example, trigger where e-mail is sent when doors are forced open - in the e-mail template, using variables, you can specify which doors was it, exact time when it happened etc.
To send a custom HTTP request when specific event is triggered firstly you need to create a trigger filter.
After creating filter you need to add HTTP Request as a trigger action.
Select "CredoID" and then "HTTP request".
Now you need to configure HTTP request that will be sent when specific event is triggered.
Endpoint URL and add needed
Parameter/Header keys(arguments) and their values. Also,
Body can be added as well.
Required details for HTTP Requests, if not publicly available, should be obtained through authorized sources.
In this example I'm using GET method to trigger a global event with attached message in "Digifort surveillance client". This HTTP Request will be triggered everytime "Door forced open" event is generated in "CredoID". This request also requires authentication, so I've added "AuthUser" and "AuthPass" keys.
