Migration App Scheduler

Follow

Audience

Any user of the Migration App.

This product is currently in Limited Availability. We invite any Customers interested in using the product to engage Egnyte Professional Services or their Customer Success Manager to have it enabled for their domain.

Context

Migration Operators can schedule a given migration job to run one time in the future. This is the first phase of the Scheduler functionality we are developing to help Migration Operators manage complex migration projects.

Please be advised that Unattended Mode overrides the Scheduler. In future iterations, Unattended Mode functionality will be incorporated into a more robust Scheduling feature.

Enabling the Scheduler for Your Domain

Before you can access Scheduler for a job in Migration App, you must have it enabled for your domain. To do this, submit a ticket to support@egnyte.com to request it. This Settings Update can take up to two full business days to be implemented.

Setting a Scheduled Job

Go to the Migration Job Details page. In the left column, click Advanced options. Clicking on Scheduler brings up a new page.

Clicking On to Enable Scheduler reveals a calendar picker to select a date and time. Date and time selected must be in the future. Time slots are presented in military time at :15 intervals, and reflect the clock on the host where the agent is installed. If no time is selected, time will default to 00:00.

In the Other Details (right column on the details page), Scheduler will display simply Disabled or Enabled.

When Scheduler has been enabled for a job, on the Migration Dashboard a clock icon will appear next to the status of the job. Hovering over the clock icon will display when the job is scheduled to run.

Considerations

  • If a job has been scheduled but not yet executed, the user may change the date and time to another point in the future.
  • If a scheduled job has initiated, the user may always schedule a subsequent execution.
  • If both Scheduling and Unattended Mode are enabled, Unattended Mode will take precedence and the Scheduled job will not run.
  • In the next iteration of this feature, Scheduling will allow for recurring job executions, which will replace Unattended Mode.
