Run playbooks trigger to perform other tasks

Run a playbook from outside SGBox

The trigger must be the start node of the playbook. When it’s called, the PB starts and follows its normal flow.
Playbooks - Trigger Node

A URL is provided to call the playbook via browser or any HTTP request (e.g: CURL).
Test URL has to be used while building the playbook, before saving it. Production URL can be used once the PB is saved.
Parameters passed via GET or POST to the trigger became available to the other nodes.


    • Call trigger URL via browser, adding a parameter in GET mode:
    • The parameter is available to all nodes, in JSON format

Then the flow continues and the output of the triggered PB can be used in following nodes.
