The Automation is a pervasive aspect of the LogicalDOC platform and represents the way you have to program things using a simple scripting language.
In order to write a correct automation script you need minimum programming capabilities. Please look at the Automation Manual to familiarize with the syntax. You may also look at the Automation Snippets.
In this section you define reusable automation routines. These routines may be referenced and triggered when specific events happens in the platform.
Here you can instruct LogicalDOC how it has to react to events with your own logic. A trigger is executed when one of the events it is binded to happens. The trigger may define the Automation script directly or may reference one of the available routines. Moreover a trigger may be assigned to a specific folder.
The automation script bypasses all the security policies during it's execution, so make sure which users can write automation scripts or execute automation routines.
