    Q&A 33: Can we create a job to monitor disabled rules

    Q: Monitor disabled rules. Our company purchased Limagito products and used it for several years, and I am very happy to have such a useful product. I want to ask a technical question. Several of our colleagues manage all the built rules together, but sometimes we accidentally turn it off and forget to turn it on. I would like to ask if there is any way to scan all RULES in limagito and find that its status is “Disable”, so we can create a job to monitor this and send a mail to notify us. Looking forward to your help, and wish you all good health.
    A: In version v2020.12.6.0 we added Pascal Script as Source. This new option makes it possible for us to achieve your request. Let’s get started.

    • Select PScript (Pascal Script) as Source:

    Limagito File Mover Pascal Script as Source

    Add the following Pascal Script (Copy / Paste):

      tmpInfo: String;
      tmpList: TStringList;
      ctFileName = 'Disabled_Rules.txt';
      // Init Var
      psClearSourceFiles; // Clear SourceFiles Listing
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // We'll use a TStringList that we'll fill with Disabled Rules Data
      tmpList := TStringList.Create;
          // Function psGetDisabledRuleList(Const aIncGroupname, 
          // aIncRuleName, aIncRuleID: Boolean; Const aDelimiter, aQuoteChar: Char): String;
          // Request for All Disabled Rules using Tab(#9) as Delimiter
          // Include Groupname, RuleName and RuleID
          tmpInfo := psGetDisabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0);
          If tmpInfo <> '' Then
            // We'll use psVSA paramter in our email setup later
            psVSA := tmpInfo
            // Add to List
            // Save List To File
            tmpList.SaveToFile(psRuleTempPath + ctFileName);
            // Add To SourceFiles List
            psAddToSourceFiles(psRuleTempPath + ctFileName);
          psLogWrite(1, '', 'Save File ' + psRuleTempPath + ctFileName + ' Exception');

    It also possible to request all Enabled Rules. In this case you need to replace

    tmpInfo := psGetDisabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0);


    tmpInfo := psGetEnabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0);
    • Add SMTP as Destination:

    • SMTP as Destination  Setup:

    We added %VSA parameter which also contains the Disabled Rule(s). Option ‘Include Source File as Attachment’ is also enabled so the text file containing the Disabled Rule information will be attached to the email.

    Q&A 12: create a new rule with disabled timers in LimagitoX File Mover

    Q: It would be nice if when we create a rule it is defaulted to “Disabled Timers”. I’m pretty good at remembering, but it can happen and sometimes unintentional things happen when I’m not quite finished configuring the rule and enable by habit when I just want to fire it manually for testing when ready.
    A: Yes this is possible since version 2020.5.30.0

    Tools Menu >> Options


    Check ‘Disable scan timers when new rule is added’

    LimagitoX Disable Scan Timers when new rule is disabled

    If you need help, please let us know.
