Creating/Editing Operations

Managing the start of operations, setting parameters and viewing information about the operation status are available in the “Operations” section.

To create an operation:

  1. Go to the “Operations” section.

  2. Click image1 “Create” at the bottom of the list of operations.

  3. Fill in the mandatory properties:

    • Active: Checkbox that defines the operation as active, i.e. current and available for launching (also by schedule).

    • Type: Drop-down list with the type of operation, such as an reindex or export operation. The type determines the set of parameters in the “Parameters” section. If a third-party operation package is connected, the list of available values will be supplemented by the corresponding items.

    • Name: Name of the operation, which will be displayed in the list of operations.

  4. Optional. Fill in additional properties of operation:

    • Description: Additional information about the operation.

    • Cron expression: Setting up the periodicity of operation (schedule) execution by CRON-expressions. CRON-expressions are implemented with the help of Quartz API and must be set according to its syntax. The user can use an expression generator for Quartz API, for example:

    • If necessary, use tags.

  5. Specify operation parameters.

  6. Click image2 “Save” in the top right corner of the screen.


A new operation can be saved only after all required fields are filled in and the correct CRON expression format is entered. If you try to save the operation with a correct CRON expression, but with an unreadable validity period (e.g. start the operation every second), you will be asked to confirm this action.

To edit a previously created operation:

  1. Select it from the list of existing operations.

  2. Enter required property values. Operation type cannot be changed.

  3. Click “Save”.

To delete an operation:

  1. Select an operation from the list and click image3 Delete in the upper-right corner of the screen.

  2. Confirm or cancel the action in the window that appears.

Cloning Operations

  1. Select the required operation from the list of created ones and press image4 Clone on the right side of the line.

  2. As a result, a copy of the operation will be opened for editing.

  3. Set a unique name and change at least one parameter.

  4. Save the operation.

Sorting Operations

To sort a list of operations, click the “Filter” element:

  1. Filter the operations by activity: select All, Active, or Inactive.

  2. You can also filter operations: by ID, by name, or by type (in ascending or descending alphabetical order).

Using Tags

Any operation can be marked with one or more tags. Using tags allows you to mark any sets of operations and then search through them. For example, you can mark all operations for initially loading a large number of records.

To create a tag:

  1. Select a required operation from the list of created ones, or create a new one.

  2. In the “Tags” field, enter the tag value (any characters).

  3. Click “Enter”, or left-click on tag name.

  4. Save the operation.

Removing a tag from the “Tags” field is available in several ways: erase the text (Backspace); click on selected tag; and remove the tag by left-clicking on the right of the tag.

All tags used in at least one saved operation are available in the drop-down list.

Tags are imported and exported with a set of operations and are available to any user who has rights to work with this section.
