Adding and Editing Jobs


  • Users must have the Remote Administration privilege to work with jobs.
  • The Notification Server must be configured and running for jobs to be executed.

To add or edit a job:

  1. From the Scheduler view, do one of the following:
    • To add a job, click Add.
    • To edit an existing job, search for or navigate to the job, and then click the job name.
  2. Provide a name of up to 128 unicode characters.
  3. Leave the Enabled check box selected to activate the job; otherwise, clear the check box to define the job without activating it.
  4. Specify the time the job should be run, based on the time zone set in your user profile. Select On Date to run the job once on a specific date, or select Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly to schedule a recurring job.

    To use cron to schedule the job, select Advanced and enter a cron expression. For example, you might use a cron expression when you need to repeat a job on an interval smaller than a day or if you need to avoid weekends.

  5. Select the type of job from the Action list, and then complete the options that appear:
    • Run Script: Select an SBM ModScript or SBM AppScript and the user who will execute the script. Optionally, for an SBM ModScript, specify parameter names and values to pass to the script in the Script to Execute table.
    • LDAP Import: Select the type of LDAP import or update that you want to schedule, and then select the LDAP option set that you defined on the Import Users page. See Scheduling Imports.
    • Run Web Service: Click the Select Function button, and then select a function name from the available Application Engine Web services. Select the user who will execute the Web service. Optionally, map inputs to the Web service by clicking the Map Inputs button, and then by selecting or typing a value.
    • Send Email: Select the user who will send the e-mail, and enter the subject and body of the e-mail. By default, the e-mail is sent to all users. To specify only certain groups to receive the e-mail, clear the All Users check box and select or search for groups, and then use the right arrow (>) to add them.
    • Call REST: Select a REST data source and the user who will execute the REST service call. Optionally, click the Params button to add, modify, or remove REST parameters.
    • Raise Event: Select an event to execute an orchestration workflow and the user who will execute the event.
  6. Save your changes.
