Triggers fields

Each trigger has its own set of fields. The created fields will be displayed in an automation setting. Set up the Response of Request widget, select the field to save the value of the variable. This value will be transferred in the automation when the trigger starts.

Field creation

Click the “Add a field” button and fill in the fields in the pop-up. Fields list at creation:

Field code: internal field ID. It can contain only Latin letters and numbers. Not available for editing.

Name in English: field label will be displayed to the user in Albato English interface.

Type: selects the type of the field.

Any created field is available for editing by clicking the pencil icon:

Field types

Each field has type, the type affects the result we receive. Indicate the type of the fields in advance. Indicate the type of phone number, date and time in off-standard format, or an array of elements.

Available types:

String – String ""

Int – Integer

Decimal – Fractional number

Boolean – true / false

DateTime - Date and time type. Date and time type needs additional format conversion. Click the gear button to specify date format and time zone.

Phone - Another internal type. If you add such field in the Response tab, you can specify phone number format and final type by clicking the gear button.

Elements Arrays

All types can have an additional type with + array at the end. This type means that the data must be passed in an array of elements (ed. Array of strings). If you need to transfer JSON in this form:

{"tags":[ "tag", "tag2", "tag3"]}

by creating one field that will be mapped to tags with the StringArray type. When the trigger starts, elements from the array will fall into one field and will be transferred in one string, with the separator specified in the widget (click the gear button for setting if the selected field has + array type.)
