Quick Start Guide

Here we've listed the necessary steps to start using ATrigger to call your scheduled tasks in 10 minute.

Step 1: Create an account

You need an account to get API authentication credentials and a verification file. In this step after filling this form, you will be forwarded to your private setup page. All details are available immediately.

You need to have/save this 3 items for the next steps:

  1. API Key
  2. API Secret
  3. Domain Verification File

Register a new account:
Or if you have signed up before, you need to just login:

All this details will always remain in your account and they will be accessible anytime in your setup page.

Step 2: Verify your domain

A Trigger needs to make sure each user can make requests for only their own website. This is a security ability to avoid possible unwanted requests on other websites. Now you can make sure you are the only one who can call your tasks using A Trigger. It's a simple procedure:
  1. Download your personal* verification text file at: (you have this file from the Step 1)
  2. Upload it to the root of your task domain. Instructions?

Domain Verification File is not a private data and the contents are not useful for anyone.

Step 3: Start using A Trigger

In the two previous steps you have successfully activated your A Trigger API.
  • Your have your API Key and Secret.
  • The verification file is uploaded and you are a trusted user to make scheduled tasks for your website.

Create tasks using panel

If you need a few specified scheduled tasks, you don't need to use A Trigger API. You can make them in your panel in a few seconds. Even you don't need your API authentication credentials.
  1. Login to your panel.
  2. Click on create a new task shortcut on the right menu.

Required fields are:

  1. Time Slice: a number value and a time quantity.
  2. Count: how many times should be repeated?
  3. URL: is your task URL. A Trigger will call this URL at the specified time slice and will repeat this cycle for "Count" times.

Create tasks using A Trigger API

In most cases, scheduled tasks are more than fingers. For example, We need to create several scheduled tasks for each user programmatically. Obviously you can not login to A Trigger Panel to create sets of new tasks for each new signup! We worked very hard to make a powerful API and we believe we did it. We have a simple REST API that you can start using it by any programming language available. You need just to make simple HTTP calls to A Trigger API URL. That's all.

To make it more simple, We've made some libraries for popular languages and we are busy to increase or coverage. Using a library, you can create tasks with a single line.
