This is the fifth installment in a series of posts about the new features and options in AppSense Version 8 Service Pack 2. (If you have not yet downloaded this latest release, you can read more info and download it from here )
AppSense Environment Manager 8.0 Service Pack 2 introduces a new condition – Run Once.
When the Run Once condition is utilized on a specific trigger, the condition ensures that any child actions or conditions only run once during that logged on session.
This condition is available only from trigger nodes that run more than once per session, and therefore excludes the following:
- Computer | Startup
- Computer | Shutdown
- User | Logon
- User | Logoff
Each Run Once condition uses its own unique internal variable to monitor when the condition is satisfied. This enables any number of conditions to be utilized but only once within the current session. So, for example, you could pop up a ‘maintenance’ warning message only the first time a specific application is launched within that session.
Tip It is possible to change the Run Once condition to become a ‘Run More than Once’ condition by editing an existing Run Once condition and selecting ‘Ctrl‐Alt‐Right Click’ in the dialog to bring up a new counter spin control. Altering the counter value from ‘1’ to the desired number will change the action to a ‘Run More than Once’ action.
