About the Webinar

Automating your research tasks for greater efficiency in CyVerse just got easier! Join us for a technology preview of DataWatch, an API (Application Programming Interface) that you can use to trigger code or run a workflow at specified "data events" like when a specific data file uploads or when analysis results are returned to the Data Store. DataWatch enables email notifications at pre-specified data events and will work in concert with event-driven webhooks to utilities or URLs. CyVerse users with some command-line skills can  employ DataWatch to automate tasks instead of triggering them manually or writing cron jobs to get their work done more efficiently.

What You'll Learn

  • What the DataWatch API is and does
  • How DataWatch can increase efficiency in automating your workflows
  • When DataWatch will be available to use

Suggested Level of Expertise

  • Experience with Command-Line
  • Experience with using APIs
