How to get the execution context of an automation

L0 Member

There are many ways to trigger an automation, by field display actions, field change actions, a task of playbook or CLI. I want to know how my automation is being triggered. Is there any way to grab that info when an automation is triggered?

You can take a look at the script (automation) settings and review the tags. Or in the playbook where the automation is, go to details and setup your own tag. Give it a name a simple name that describes what the action does. You should be able to use this as a warroom filter to easily find all automations that utilize that tag. Example, tag could be "blockautomation". The benefit of doing it this way is you can create dashboards views using the tags filter.
