Triggers doctype

io.cozy.triggers documents are used by the stack to configure how and when a job should be runned.

This is a special doctype which can only be created from an app. We are using it in Cozy-Home to manage konnectors scheduling.


Attribute Role
arguments Arguments related to the type attribute. For example it’s a cron configuration when the type is set to @cron.
debounce The debounce parameter can be used to limit the number of jobs created in a burst. It delays the creation of the job on the first input by the given time argument, and if the trigger has its condition matched again during this period, it won’t create another job. Its syntax is the one understood by go’s time.ParseDuration

options Parameters related to the job.
