Getting the status of a Location Event

Recently, my Cloud Backup didn’t update and I had to shutdown/restart the hub. This happened in both of my hub locations after a recent update. I am trying to create a notification that will alert me if this happens again.

I am using Rule machine, and trigger on the Location event : cloudBackup.

I would like to conditionally send a message only when the cloudbackup fails. I only want to send a message when it fails, so I'd like to put an IF statement prior to the notification, but can't seem to find a way to check the value to see if it failed. Any help is appreciated.

C8 hub platform

For a failed backup the condition should be %value% ≠ true

The problem I'm having is I can't find where to test against the %value% condition.
When I create an IF expression, the closest choices in the dropdown are variable, attribute, Boolean, none of which allow me to test against the %value%.
How can I find the %value% for the location event in an If statement so I can test against it ?

You'll need to set a variable to "%value%", then test it from there. (PITA, but that's the way it's always been.)


Got it working.
If anybody is looking at this later, the variable needs to be %value% ≠ success
