Jobs are server-side executed and recurring tasks which use business objects as logic. They can be found by clicking on the ‘Jobs’ tile on the dashboard.
They are used to automate business objects. The selected business object method will be executed by the Simplifier on a periodic basis. You may schedule the jobs in order to trigger them without further user intervention.
The red and green icons within the overview indicate whether the job is active. The red icons signify that it’s inactive and the green icons signify that it’s active.
To create a new job, you have to name it and set an interval after which the job is called in repeatedly. Selecting the business object and the function provides the job with functionality. Furthermore, you can choose the user who should execute the job (in case he has all permissions required). The active time zone on the server applies to all dates and time settings. You can choose between the 5 following intervals:
It’s a recurring interval at which the job is executed in the format <hh>:<mm>:<ss>. If the new execution overlaps with a previous run, it’s only started after it has been completed and after a further interval.
With this you can set an actual date <dd>.<MM>.<yyyy> and time <hh>:<mm>:<ss>.
If the selected time is in the past, the job will not be executed!
You can set a daily time in the format: <hour>:<minute>:<second>
If you select this interval, it will be repeated every week. Set it in <hour>:<minute>:<second> and the appropriate day(s).
Set this interval if you want that it’s repeated monthly. Set it in <hour>:<minute>:<second> and the day(s) within this month.
If the selected day doesn’t occur in this month, e.g. the 30th February, the job will not be executed in this month.
