Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

Rule doesn't match sensor output


I found out my rule doesn’t match with sensor output but unsure whats wrong. Any insight will be of much help

Sensor output:

Your data is not valid JSON. That is why the rule is not matching.

Look at your trigger instance, specifically the type: parameter - it is 'type': 'CheckResult'

But in your rule, you’re doing this:

     type: "matchregex"
     pattern : "*exit_status*"

exit_status is the name of a key within your trigger - it is not a value. Are you trying to check if that key exists, or are you trying to check that the exit_status key exists, and is a particular value?
