Event Handlers in Plesk

By on September 22nd, 2016

Event handlers are intended to help you get warnings about Plesk occasions. The most run of the mill approach to utilizing them is as per the following: you make a script to be executed upon a specific Plesk event, and afterward, you relate the event, and your script is utilizing an event handler. Every time the occasion occurs, the event handler will trigger your script. You can likewise relate event handlers with a framework charge or a double document. There are two truths to consider before you begin utilizing occasion handlers:

1) Event handlers trigger directions for the benefit of the Plesk admin.

2) Event handlers have data around a related Plesk object “before” and “after” an event.

At the point when an event happens, event handlers get the event subtle elements, and you can utilize these points of interest in your guidelines. For instance, you can acquire the IP address which was included by the “including an IP address” event. The event points of interest are passed to your guidelines as environment variables.


Running scripts via event handlers

For instance, we should store the names of new clients on the document framework. To do this, first, we ought to discover nature variable that contains the contact name. This variable is recorded in the Administrator’s Guide, Appendix > Customer account created. As should be obvious, the variable name is NEW_CONTACT_NAME. At the moment, we have to make an event handler.


To create the event handler via Plesk

1) Sign into Plesk. Go to the Tools and Settings tab > Event Manager.
