Schedulers in ONE DATA are mainly used to control workflow execution automatically without intervention.
Using schedulers, the user can execute a specific version of a Workflow or Production Line at a certain time and with a certain frequency.
Create a new scheduler
The user can navigate to available schedules by clicking the corresponding tab in the top navigation bar (1).
A new scheduler can be created via the button "Create new" (2), a new dialog then pops up (see figure below).
The schedules overview shows the available schedules as well as their status (active/inactive). The status can be viewed within the column "active".
Once A workflow or a production line is selected along with the corresponding version, the user is redirected to the scheduler configuration.
- General information about the schedule, including creation and modification dates, resource name, etc.
- Schedule status (active / inactive). The schedule is inactive by default, the user needs to switch to active state once the configuration is done.
- Make sure to save the schedule configuration upon finishing the configuration.
- A list of all available schedules along with their execution time, execution frequency, stop and available actions (actions available for executed schedules are delete, action available for planned schedules are delete and edit). Click on "add schedule rule" to create a new rule. each rule will trigger the same workflow / production line and version but has different start, frequency and stop time.
- A list of all executed jobs and planned jobs. This list only contains jobs executed using the current scheduler.
- Use schedule pause to stop the workflow / production line execution for a specific time interval.
Note that the user is able to edit an already created rule as long as an execution is still planned. If the rule hasn't executed yet, it is possible to update the start, frequency and end time. If at least one execution has occurred, the user is only able to edit the frequency and/or the end time. If no execution is planned, only deleting the rule is possible.
Within the workflow / production line job list, if a job is executed via a scheduler, an icon will appear on the list item. Clicking the icon will navigate to corresponding schedule overview.
