Raise automation on specific event (provider sync)

Hello everyone!

I’m trying to create an automation that will step into action in the event of cloud provider syncing.

  1. which event is triggered when a provider is syncing?
  2. which event handler is catching this event?
  3. I want to add extra functionality to this handler in the event of provider syncing. what will be the best course of action?

thanks guys (:

@lfu Can you take a look? I do not think there are any existing events that are triggered for the provider refresh. Is there any other event that might work?

Currently there is no event got raised for provider refresh.

To implement it, a new event should be created and raised during the provider refresh which would require code changes. Then the new event should be added under /System/Event/MiqEvent/POLICY in Automate and put you extra functionality into the event instance.

thanks @lfu @gmccullough!
