Configuring Jobs

:!: To make manipulations with jobs, you should have at least one resource with the access right Create, edit, and delete jobs.

To create a new job, press the New button. In the dialog choose job type:

Then follow instructions in the dialog. For any type, you have to select units to apply this job to and set the basic parameters like activation time and schedule. For each type of job, adjust also individual parameters described below.

Selecting Units for Jobs and Notifications

:!: Access required: Use unit in jobs, notifications, routes, retranslators (resource's creator where the job belongs is supposed to have this access to units to assign then this job).

By default, only units which are on the work list of the Monitoring panel at the moment are displayed in the dialog where you choose units for a job or notification. If you use the dynamic work list (formed according to data accuracy), all units allowed for the activity are displayed in the dialog.

If you see no units, press the 'Display all' button . If it does not help, it means there is not enough access to any of units.

You can switch between units and groups by clicking the switch-button /. If you select a group, it means the action will be applied to all units in this group. The list of units is in group's tooltip.

Mark units/groups to apply a job/notification to. Put the flag in the header of the table to select all items.

Please note that if there are more than a hundred units on this page, their icons are not displayed.

While editing a job or notification, this page contains units selected for the job (they are checked) and units displayed on the work list at the moment. You can add more units for the action or remove some. However, only unit with Use unit in jobs… flag can be displayed here. If a job or notification that you are editing contains units to which you have not enough rights, you will be warned about it and in case you save the job/notification, those units will be lost.

Maximum executions
Enter the number of job executions after which it will automatically deleted. If you leave this field empty, the job will be executed endlessly until you delete it or disable manually.

This check box indicated whether the job is on or off. When creating a job, enable this check box to activate the job just after creation. If this check box is not marked, the job will appear on the list anyway, and you can activate it later.

Time limitations
In the right part of the dialog one can define time limitations by days, months, time, etc. For instance, the job can be assigned to a unit just on weekdays and within working hours from 9 AM to 6 PM. Or you may want to reset traffic counter once a month on the first day of the month. To do this, select the day 1.
