Scheduled Tasks

Introduced in 2022.1

Scheduled Tasks are non-interactive workflow items in Alloy Navigator Express that run automatically, on schedule, outside of an object's context. This article describes how to customize the default Scheduled Tasks.

You can work with Scheduled Tasks using the Settings App, under Services > Scheduled Tasks.

IMPORTANT: Scheduled Tasks run on the Automation Server, which must be properly configured and started beforehand. For details, see Automation Server.

Default Scheduled Tasks

The default workflow pack includes several pre-configured Scheduled Tasks for default integrations, such as "Microsoft Intune Integration". To enable a default workflow integration, you need to customize its workflow configuration under Workflow and Business Logic > Workflow Configuration > Integrations. Then you can test the integration and, if everything works as expected, enable the corresponding task under Services > Scheduled Tasks.

INFO: For instructions on how to use the default workflow integrations, see Integrations. For example, Integrations: Microsoft Azure AD Integration.

To enable or disable a Scheduled Task:

  • In Settings, go to Services > Scheduled Tasks, right-click the desired task, and select Enable or Disable from the pop-up menu.

    Alternatively, you can open the task to reveal ts details and select the Enabled check box above Schedule.

    TIP: You can change the default schedule, if needed.
