Pass variables to rule Engine?

I don’t think it’s supported but, I thought I would ask…

Is it possible to pass a variable to the rule engine from the Android app via tasker?

Not at the moment.

We’ve had some internal discussions about two ideas that could make this possible though.

  1. HTTP / Webhook Triggers for rules
    The ability to execute a rule using a special URL.

  2. Context Variables
    A special type of variable based on the context of a rule execution. For example, you might retrieve the event that triggered the rule - for example, the device name or device value.

@josh the HTTP / Webhook work. Sounds kind of like how Join is able to pass variables.

Plus then any other service could use it.

Thanks for the feedback. I just created a Feature Request for HTTP / Webhook triggers for rules. Please add your vote to that request if it’s something you’re interested in:
