Call a Trigger from the RESTful API

Is it possible to call a trigger from the RESTful API. I know you can call an Action but the trigger has the advantages of using conditions.

Thanks

I don't think there is any way to call a trigger via the API but I know they are redoing it and perhaps in the future. In the meantime you can try my Super Conditions plugin that gives you the ability to have conditions on anything.

You could trigger on a variable change and use the API to change the variable.
