Insight automation trigger

Is there a way to trigger an Insight automation rule based on a *change* in an attribute's value?  

I currently have a rule whose trigger is Object Updated and whose condition is "Status"="Disposed."  The rule sends an e-mail to Procurement letting them know that an asset has just been disposed.

The problem is that any update to a disposed asset is resulting in the e-mail being sent, whereas I only want it sent when the asset transitions from a non-disposed status to disposed.

Is there any way to make this work? E.g. by only firing if the Status attribute is the one that's been updated?  Or by using the IF condition to filter on both the new and updated Status values (i.e., something like "Status" = "Disposed" and original."Status" != "Disposed")?  Or by executing a groovy script that can determine what the old value was before it was changed?

I'm on 5.3.11.

Any progress or idas how to solve that? 

Is there an actual feature request that is alive?

I am also interested in this feature. Anyone knows if this has been implemented yet? seems not a valid site now. Thanks.

I am also looking for this feature. Has this been implemented yet? 





Hi, I was just looking for this feature. This would be very useful for trigerring status changes on the objects.

For which version is it expected?


Thank you!

Hi Jon, 


This is a feature that we will implement in the future and there is a open feature request for it here


To achieve it today you will have to trigger a groovy script that checks the history of the object and compares with the current value based on the condition you want and then send the email. 


Hi @Ola_Melin

I'm going to investigate automation as Jon's case and I'm newbie to Groovy Script.

Do you have any suggestion or hint to check the history of object and compare values?


Thank you

Did you ever figure out how to check the history of an object using a groovy script?
