This adds an API to trigger rules manually. Currently it is only working for "Post" triggers. Includes documentation.
This allows you to do a few things:
- Test the rules more easily (though be careful that the parameters might not be exactly the same).
- Build a rule with an Edit trigger that triggers the equivalent "Add" trigger (eg. when you want the same conditions/action for Add/Edit) - this might need an action to be implemented to do this.
- Trigger rules manually from custom/external implementations. (eg. when an activity is added a rule sends an email to the client. This allows you to put a "re-send" button on the page and the same rule will be triggered / email will be sent).
