I've recently editing some automation triggers after they were erroring out and I'd like to confirm that they work. Is there a way to do a test trigger to confirm it works without actually running the enter workflow? In my case is release notes for when a new release type is created so really don't want to create a new release to confirm it has worked. Thanks and apologies if its been asked already!
Are you simply wanting to see if the rule triggers or if it would execute correctly? There’s no way to run a test Automation but not hav it perform the action. However, what I would suggest is to remove or comment out the action and execute the trigger and see if the conditions pass. This tests the trigger and the conditions but not the action obviously.
