Managing the Task List

The Task List of the Settings app is a list of all inventory tasks initiated in Alloy Discovery. In this list, you can see the progress of each task from Pending until the Finished status.

Once a task is initiated, it appears in the Task List under the name of the Inventory Server that performs this task. Thus, the tasks are shown broken down by the Inventory Server instances registered in the database. For example, if you have two Inventory Server instances in the database, the Task List may simultaneously display the progress of the Audit task executed by the first Inventory Server instance and the progress of the Check for New Snapshots task executed by the second Inventory Server instance.

NOTE: You can manage automatically scheduled audit tasks only using the Settings app. Other tasks are also available from the Task Pane of the Desktop App.
