Plug-in event

An action block which awaits an “event” to be triggered by an app which support the Tasker plug-in architecture.

The fiber will pause until the plug-in triggers the “event”.

Variables in Tasker plug-ins must be preceded by a % character. Automate has no such requirement, so any preceding % character will be removed for the output variables names.

Privacy warning! When a plug-in has been configured, the configuration will be stored in the flow, the data within it is foreign to Automate and may contain sensitive information. Be wary of sharing a flow using this block.


  • Plug-in — plug-in to invoke.

Output variables

If a plug-in support result variables, a list of variables may be displayed once the plug-in has been configured. An alternative, if no variables are displayed, is to enable Allow plug-in to set any variable and assign the variables from within the plug-in during configuration.

Note! This documentation is also accessible within the app from Help & feedback menu.
