Logicblock self-evaluation

From a user: “Any chance LogicBlocks will evaluate themselves in the future instead of having to use IFTTT to call the evaluation every hour?”

They do don’t they? I don’t call my logicblocks every hour and they work just fine?

Take a look to advanced options of logicblock…

I may be wrong but I think the user is asking for a logicblock routine to trigger a self-evaluation according to a schedule, say every 5 mins.

Hi @DanT,

I do not see any business case for a time-based evaluation if you can re-evaluate automatically at each variable value change…

The only thing that I see is if you have a condition based on a timing like “myvariable is true since 5 mins” ; in that case a self-evaluation of linked logicblocks at the end of the 5 min delay would be great (but I think it’s covered in another community topic)

Hi @BOS!

We now cover the case you describe, you can make a condition a trigger when it changes (false to true and true to false). All the details here:

And for anyone who is interested in evaluating a Logicblock with a regular time schedule, you can use Apilio’s native time conditions, you might be interested in our cron expressions for an extremely accurate control! Have a look at our documentation regarding timing and time control to find what best suits your logic:
