Creating standalone triggers

You can create triggers from the Triggers view or the Events View by using the transport settings that are configured in an operation’s message exchange pattern (MEP) or by using the settings in an existing trigger.


  1. In the Triggers view, select the New Trigger icon or select New > Trigger from the menu. In the Events View, click the small arrow next to the Triggers menu and select the Trigger option.
  2. Select the operation in which you want to create the trigger, then click Next.
  3. Select whether you want to create a brand new trigger or create one based on an existing trigger, then click Next. If you base the new trigger on an existing one, you must select the existing trigger before proceeding.
    Note: If you select the Create a trigger option, the selected operation must have a transport that is configured in its MEP settings.
  4. Configure the message to be sent by the trigger in the trigger editor. The trigger is configured like a publisher (For more information, see Publish.)
  5. Provide a name for the trigger and select whether you want to run the trigger after it is created and whether to add the new trigger to the Triggers menu in the Events View.
  6. Click Finish to create the trigger and close the wizard.
