The event simulation tool lists which policy actions are configured to fire when a specific event occurs. It does not execute the actual actions configured for the policy.
This tool helps to answer these types of questions:
- Why didn't my policy action execute? (Perhaps policies are not actually configured to respond to an event as you thought they were.)
- Why am I getting multiple actions, such as multiple emails, for the same event? (Perhaps more than one policy is configured to perform the same action.)
To see the actions that will fire for an event:
- In the events list, select the event for which you expect actions to fire.
- From the Actions menu, select Test Action Execution.
