There are four types of Event variables, Manual, File, Directory and Process Events.
You can enter the FIREEVENT command in your batch or script files on your Windows Server to let Skybot Scheduler know what events are happening. Your reactive jobs can react to the data passed.
The FIREEVENT command starts a Java process which connects to an agent and instructs it to fire a named/manual event that was previously defined in Skybot Scheduler. Use this command to fire manual events to make Skybot Scheduler aware than an event happened on this agent. Skybot Scheduler can use manual fired events to perform reactive jobs. This would be the API that allows users to kick off a Skybot job from their script.
File Events which will check for a file that is added, removed, changed or a threshold changed.
Directory Events which will check for a file that is added, removed, changed or a threshold changed.
Process Event can fire after process becomes active.
