AWS RDS Conditionals

Conditional Processing or Execution Conditions gives you the power to decide if a particular action on AWS RDS will be executed or not when the workflow is triggered by the incoming event. This is similar to the if-then-else logic applied to the execution of an action based on the attribute from the trigger event of the workflow.

Think of Conditional Processing as the equivalent of if-then-else, as decision diamond in the flow chart, or the Conditional Branching in BPEL (Business Process Execution Language).

You can add conditional processing to any action in your workflow and evaluate which actions should be performed in response to a particular trigger event identified by its characteristics or the data attributes. You can apply complex logic using AND, OR, and grouping of such conditions. Each of the conditions supports different operators based on the event data type being a string (ABC and/or 123), number (123), boolean (true/false), etc. Read here to find more about Conditional Processing.

Example Scenario

At the time of defining an action if you want to act depending on some criteria then you can use conditional processing. For example, in Figure 1, AWS RDS action will be carried out if the message sent by the chosen Microsoft Teams channel contains an attachment.
