I have an Email condition defined to look for a specific subject in an email box. If found, it should launch the task.

I can't get this to run without manually initiating. I have tried setting the execution location to Triggered Agent, Condition Agent, and to our Production cluster. The behavior is set to Wait for condition and to Trigger on startup if condition is true. When I launch it manually it is launching the task whether the condition is met or not.

The documentation for the email trigger doesn't match the actual form. It speaks of "Trigger element", "Wait element" and "Conditional element", but there is no where to provide this information.

How do you define the email trigger to wait for an email to arrive that matches the criteria, launch the workflow (task), then reset itself to watch for any more that match?

Attached is my sanitized workflow (accounts, passwords, domains, servers are scrubbed).

I appreciate any help I can get.
