Automations help you to perform repetitive tasks without human intervention. You can set up an automation using various third party applications. For example, you can notify your team via an email whenever an entry is created in your stack.

To set up an automation, you need to configure your trigger and action connectors. To learn more, refer to the Create Automation step in the Get Started with Automations document.

Connectors are a combination of Triggers and Actions events. When a trigger event is executed, the action connector performs the defined steps. Refer to Automation Hub Connectors to get started.

Trigger connectors are conditions that help set off an automation whenever the selected event is executed. Action connectors is the action performed when a trigger event is executed. For example, an automation is set up to send a slack message (action event) whenever an entry is created (trigger event) in Contentstack.

You can configure only one trigger event in a particular automation. You can configure multiple actions for a single automation. For example, you can set up an automation to perform end to end translation when an entry is created/updated in Contentstack. For this, you need to configure different action connectors to carry out the translation process. To learn more, refer to our End to End Translation using Smartling example.
