This article explains how admins can close Cockpit CTAs automatically through Rules Engine.


This action type enables admins to close CTAs automatically using Rules Engine.

Example Business Use Case: Consider a scenario where CTAs were created automatically due to low usage. Once the usage increases above a certain threshold, the admin needs to close these CTAs. In such cases, the Close Call to Action action type enables admins to close CTAs automatically through Rules Engine.

Gainsight recommends reading the configuration of the Rules Details, Data Setup, and Schedule steps before reading this article. For more information, refer to the Create New Rule section of the Rules Engine Horizon Experience Overview article.
