By default, OliveTin will allow you to run several instances of an action at the same time. For example, an action might take 20 seconds, and if you click the button 3 times, for a time there will be 3 actions running at the same time.
Sometimes you don’t want to allow this - an example case where it would not make sense is in the case of a backup script. To stop this, we can set
- title: Run Backup Script
If you try and run a 2nd instance of this action while the first is currently running, you’ll get a "blocked" message that looks like this;
Additionally, OliveTin will log a message that looks like this;
INFO Action requested actionTitle="Run backup script"
WARN Blocked from executing. This would mean this action is running 2 times concurrently, but this action has maxExecutions set to 1. actionTitle="Run backup script"
Naturally, you can set
3 or some other number, to limit the amount of times the action executes at once.
