Managing the start of operations, setting parameters and viewing information about the operation status are available in the “Operations” section.
To create an operation:
Go to the “Operations” section.
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.
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: http://www.cronmaker.com/
If necessary, use tags.
Specify operation parameters.
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:
Select it from the list of existing operations.
Enter required property values. Operation type cannot be changed.
To delete an operation:
Confirm or cancel the action in the window that appears.
