Manage system tasks

  1. Navigate to System > System settings > System > System tasks.

    The System tasks page appears displaying a list of system tasks with the following details:

    • Name

    • If the task is active or inactive

    • Current interval in which the system task executes

    • Due date and time

  2. From the System tasks table, select a task to edit.

    The Edit system task dialog box is displayed.

  3. By default, the system task is active. To make the system task inactive, clear the check box for Active.
  4. To modify the Interval in which to execute the task, enter the values in days, hours and/or minutes.

    The system executes the task at the defined interval.

  5. To configure the Timeout interval that specifies how long the worker task can run before it is automatically reset, enter the values in days, hours and/or minutes. (Default: 5 Mins, Minimum: 1Min and Maximum: 23 Hrs 59 Mins 59 Seconds)
  6. For some tasks such as Job Scheduling, you can change the date and time of task execution.
    1. Select Use start time.
    2. Enter the values using the Calendar and Time Picker.

      When you specify the start time, the system task first executes at the start time and the next execution depends on the interval set.

  7. Set the Operating time (start time and end time) in hours and/or minutes to optimize the use of resources for high priority work during critical times of the day. You can combine the operating time with the system task interval to calculate the next due date for the system task to execute.

    When you use start time and also set an operating time, the time portion of the start time is the first portion of the operating time. For example, if the start time is 06/09/2017 @ 14:08 and the operating time is 18:00 - 20:00, then the start time of the task will be 06/09/2017 @ 18:00.

    • If the date and time combined is in the past, an error occurs.

    • If no time period is defined, the next due date for a system task is calculated using the active indicator and the system task interval.

  8. Click Save.

    Restart the Kofax TotalAgility services for the settings to take effect.

  9. In the System tasks dialog box, click Refresh to get the latest details for system tasks.
  10. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.
