This is the eigth 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 option – Stop If Fails.
In order to emulate functionality from earlier versions of Environment Manager, the Stop If Fails option can be utilized to prevent subsequent processing of child nodes. This does not alter the existing behavior of other actions and parallel nodes.
Note: By default, any action or condition that fails automatically stops the processing of subsequent child actions or child conditions.
On upgrading from a 7.x Environment Manager configuration, all rules are converted to reusable conditions and Stop If Fails is applied to each condition where referenced in the main configuration body.
Note: Stop If Fails is not available from within either reusable nodes or reusable conditions. Copying or moving nodes or conditions that contain the Stop If Fails option to reusable nodes or reusable conditions results in those Stop If Fails options being removed. However, Stop If Fails can still be applied to the reusable node when referenced from within the main body of the configuration.
