Running jobs from the Cloud Cruiser Portal

Table of contents

From the Cloud Cruiser Portal, you can create and run jobs and also schedule them to run regularly if you have the Admin role.

Creating a job

The Batch Maintenance page in the Cloud Cruiser Portal includes sample jobs and production jobs. With the sample jobs, you can copy XML code for your own job, or save the sample job as a production job and run it with little or no modifications.

To create and run a job in the Cloud Cruiser Portal

  1. Go to Collect > Job Maintenance .
  2. Select a sample job in the Packaged Integrations list and click Save As .
  3. In the Save As pop-up, enter a new job name and click OK.
    This saves the job in the Production Jobs list where you can modify its XML.
  4. (optional) Modify the job XML file.
    Most jobs will require editing to some extent prior to running the job, such as providing settings with the explicit or managed data source for collectors, but some simple process jobs, such as alert_process ​and run_report , require no editing.
  5. (Recommended) Click Validate to check that the job XML syntax is valid.
  6. Click Run.

When the job completes, you will get a status for the Run Results that can be one of Completed Successfully, Completed with Warnings, Failed, or Launch Error. You are also given the option of viewing the log for this job run. For more information on viewing job logs, see Monitoring job results.

TIP: If your jobs previously completed successfully but are now completing with warnings, you might be out of compliance with your Cloud Cruiser license. For more information, see License compliance notifications.

  6. (optional) Select a Log Level other than Default to get more troubleshooting information.
  7. In the Select Date menu, choose the date against which the job will run:
    • Specific Day: A fixed date you specify in the Date field below
    • Current Day: The day that the job runs, changing with each execution of the schedule
    • Previous Day: (default) The day before the job runs, changing with each execution of the schedule
    • Current Day Minus 2 Days through Current Day Minus 14 Days: (version 3.3 and later) The stated number of days before the job runs, changing with each execution of the schedule
  8. (optional) Specify one or more Arguments to control job processing.
