Manage jobs

When the AODocs server needs to perform an action that needs a lot of processing resources, AODocs creates a job to break it down into multiple tasks.

Examples of actions that trigger a job:
- Import files into AODocs
- Move a file from one folder to another
- Change the security of a library
- Check ownership and fixing permissions
- Export files to another library or out of AODocs
- Delete a folder

This article explains how to:

View progress of an individual job in the user interface
View all jobs in the library administration interface

View progress of an individual job in the user interface

When an action triggers a job, a progress bar is displayed in the user interface. As a user, you can select View more details to monitor the number of tasks being executed and their status.


Note: Certain types of job can't be triggered at the same time on the same items. For example, you can't move a folder structure while some of its subfolders are being deleted.

View all jobs in the library administration interface

 As a library administrator, you can monitor the library jobs:

1. Open the library administration interface.

2. Select Jobs under Library Administration.

3. The list of jobs recently started in the library is displayed, with the following details:

  • type of job
  • who started the job
  • start date/time and latest update date/time
  • global status
  • total number of tasks in queue
  • number of successful and failed tasks

The jobs are sorted by date from the newest to the oldest. 


4. If required, filter the list of jobs. Press the filter button and enter one or more search criteria: 

  • type of job
  • global status
  • user who started the job

5. Press Apply filters. The list of jobs matching the search criteria you entered are displayed.

6. Press Reset to remove the filters.
