Testing Your Custom Action


Test whether your script runs successfully before you associate it with a rule.

  1. From the Admin tab, click the Define Actions icon.
  2. Select a custom action.
  3. Click Test Execution >Execute to test your script.

    Custom action scripts are run inside a sandbox environment on your managed hosts. If you write to disk from a custom action script, you must use the /home/customactionuser directory. Custom action scripts run on the managed host that runs the event processor that triggered the rule.

After you configure and test your custom action, use the Rule Wizard to create a new event rule and associate the custom action with it.
