The Automation Engine notifies connected client programs¹ of changes in the AE system using kicks. There are several different types of kick. You can see these kicks by enabling xml=3 tracing for the GUI or AWI.

The AE folder tree has changed.<kick client="0001" idnr="0000000000" system="AE_SYS_1">OFS        </kick>

ACTIVITY_LIST_CHANGED

Java User Interface²

<kick client="0001" idnr="0000000000" system="AE_SYS_1">OH         </kick>

PROCESSING_STARTED

Notes:

1. Such as the AWI, JUI, agents, and programs using the Java Application Interface

2. OH is the table where the AE objects are stored; EH is the activity table. It is not clear why ACTIVITY_LIST_CHANGED kicks are labeled OH kicks in the UCDJ trace, instead of EH kicks.
