Scheduled jobs administration

Overview

In the Bizagi Management Console, use the Scheduler module to directly administer Jobs which the Scheduler service runs.

The following options are available for the Scheduler module.

 

Scheduler status

The Scheduler's icon indicate this service's status (gray when stopped, crimson when started).

 

You can start, restart or stop the Scheduler service directly from these options.

To do this, right click the Scheduler icon and select the action (Start, Restart, Stop). You can also select an action in the Main menu area.

 

SchedulerStatus

 

The scheduler MUST BE in started status in order any scheduled jobs.

Scheduled Jobs administration

Scheduled jobs are subdivided as described in this table:

 

Scheduled Job type

Description

User Jobs

Sets of steps that can be run according to a schedule: run once by specifying a specific date, or run periodically during a given period of time. The status of these jobs can be consulted in this category.

System Jobs

Bizagi performs tasks automatically to make sure proper system status. This category stores the jobs related to system maintenance tasks.

We do not recommend that you manipulate the information of system jobs (they are listed for tracking and error diagnostics purposes).

Wait Jobs

Scheduled jobs that are related to Process Activities.

In this category we find such jobs as timers and Asynchronous Activities, and can consult their status.

Alarm Jobs

Alarms are messages sent to different target groups when an activity is about to expire, expires or has already expired. In this scheduler category, the jobs related to configured alarms are stored.

 

Notice that disregarding the classification above, all jobs appear under two lists: those waiting for execution, and those successfully executed.

 

Waits retries and administration

You can manage a waiting job and choose to enable it for immediate execution.

 

note_pin

Should any waiting job fail (or require transaction rollbacks), it will be still listed in a waiting status.

 

Within a job's administration options you can also view its execution log. To review a waiting job, double-click it:
