Managing AlloyScan synchronization jobs

Introduced in 2023.1

This page describes how to manage an AlloyScan synchronization job. This entity is responsible for loading inventory information from an AlloyScan database and updating your Alloy Navigator database according to the schedule you've configured.

Typically, it's recommended to create and configure a single AlloyScan Synchronization job for importing audit and scan data from a single AlloyScan database. If you need to import data from multiple AlloyScan databases, you should create an individual job for each database.

To access the list of AlloyScan Synchronization jobs, navigate to Services > AlloyScan Integration > Synchronization.

In this section, you can perform various actions related to managing these jobs.

To create a synchronization job:

  1. Click New. The AlloyScan Synchronization window appears.

  2. Configure the job as described in Configuring AlloyScan synchronization job.

To modify a synchronization job:

  1. Double-click the job on the list. The AlloyScan Synchronization Job window appears.

  2. Change the job settings as needed and click OK. For instructions, see Configuring AlloyScan synchronization job.

To force a job to run:

Select the job to run and click Run. The job will run immediately, regardless of its schedule and enabled/disabled status.

To disable or enable a synchronization job:

Right-click a job in the list and choose Disable from the pop-up menu. You can re-enable it by choosing Enable.

To delete a synchronization job:

Select the job and click Delete on the Module menu.

To refresh the job list:

The information displayed in the job list automatically refreshes every ten seconds. If needed, you can refresh it manually by clicking Refresh (or pressing F5 on the keyboard).

After an AlloyScan synchronization job has been executed by the Automation Server, you can review the job results. See Checking AlloyScan synchronization results for details.
