About Event Rules
Available in Cerberus FTP Server Enterprise edition, the Event Manager allows an administrator to configure email notifications, perform file operations or batch file actions, and carry out certain server operations based on server events.
Event rules are based on the simple premise that an event occurs that triggers an action. There are several different rule types, and for each rule type, there is a corresponding event that can trigger that rule.
You can further restrict a rule by specifying additional conditions in the event that must exist before the rule’s actions are taken.
For example, suppose you have a folder into which customers can upload files. You can set up an event rule that monitors that folder, and when someone uploads a file into that folder, the rule moves the file to another folder and then sends an e-mail to an administrator informing them that a file has been moved.
You can also set up a rule that only moves particular files. For example, you can configure the rule to move only the files that end in .zip, or you can route particular files to different folders.
An event rule consists of a triggering event (e.g. a File Transfer), any optional conditions affecting that event (e.g. uploaded by a specific user), and the resulting actions that are carried out (e.g. moving the file, or sending an email to an administrator). You can modify your rules anytime in the event manager.
