A trigger is an external event that initiates a task, or sequence of tasks, in an integration. You can think of a trigger as an entry point to your integration and the event tied to the trigger causes the tasks associated with the trigger to run.

You can add multiple triggers to your integration. However, when an event occurs, only the trigger associated with the event begins executing its tasks. For more information, see Adding multiple triggers in an integration.

Connector Event triggers

Connector Event triggers are specialized triggers that let you invoke an integration based on the event subscription created in various business applications using Integration Connectors.

For the list of all the available Connector Event triggers, see Connector Event triggers. For more information about event subscriptions in Integration Connectors, see Event subscriptions.

Adding multiple triggers in an integration

You can add one or more triggers in an integration where each trigger is associated with a different task. The integration starts from the trigger for which the event occurs. For example, consider your integration has two triggers where Trigger-1 is associated with Task-1, and Trigger-2 is associated with a downstream task Task-5. Now suppose an event triggers Trigger-2, the integration runs from Task-5 onwards.

If multiple triggers run at the same time, each trigger runs its copy of the integration. In the preceding example, if both Trigger-1 and Trigger-2 run simultaneously, Trigger-1 runs the integration from Task-1 onwards, and Trigger-2 runs a separate copy of the integration from Task-5 onwards. There is no overlap between the execution flows of the two integrations.

Execution modes

Based on the trigger, your integration is executed in either synchronous or asynchronous mode:

  • Synchronous executions: In synchronous mode, the execution result of the integration is available soon after the integration runs. Synchronous mode is helpful in scenarios where you want the execution result immediately after the integration runs. Triggers execute the integration in the synchronous mode include the following:
  • Asynchronous executions: Asynchronous executions use the fire and forget model. Asynchronous mode is helpful in scenarios where integrations can take a long time to run, or the execution result is not required immediately after the integration runs. Triggers that execute the integration in the asynchronous mode include the following:
