Advanced Logic Nodes with Expressions

  • Updated
  • The default Simple Logic Node is designed to be easy to use and foolproof, but if you need more advanced operations you can take advantage of the Advanced option in the Logic Node Editor. You can use parenthesis, as well as comparison and logical operators to build complex rules.

    Just click the Advanced option, and you can enter expressions, like these shown below:

    Examples

    If you have variables named age and state:

    (age >= 50) && (state == 'CA') 50 and over living in California
    (age < 30) && (age > 20) Over 20 and under 30
    state in ['CA','WA','OR'] One of CA, WA, OR
    (age < 10) || (age > 80) Under 10 or over 80

     

    Reference

    You can use the following operators when building expressions:

    Type Description Operator
    Comparison greater than >
    Comparison greater than or equal to >=
    Comparison less than <
    Comparison less or equal to <=
    Comparison equal to ==
    Comparison not equal to !=
    Comparison identical ===
    Comparison not identical !==
    Containment matches an item in a list in
    Logical and &&
    Logical or ||

    Other Hints:

    • Parentheses can be nested and will be evaluated from left to right.
    • Only value/variable comparison expressions with optional logical ANDs/ORs, are supported.
    • For text operations, use single quotes!

    Testing Tool

    You can verify all your logic and expressions are working properly by clicking this button:

    This will let you enter up to five variables and values, and will test all the expressions in your logic node. 

    Important: Make sure you Save Changes to the logic node first!
