Run searches on app first install but not on upgrade


I would like to create an app which when installed will do the following

  • Run a number searches against an already existing index during first install to output data to a summary index or a csv/lookup

  • Create a number of REST Modular inputs and run each one once when the app is first installed.

  • Setup a number of scheduled searches to run at a defined period.

Please can someone advise how I can trigger a search to run during an app first install but not on an upgrade?
