creating a task in scheduler at run time

  • 1.  creating a task in scheduler at run time

    Posted 8 days ago
    Hi,

    Is there a way to create a task in scheduler at run time, something like extending a scheduler. Once of my process is suppose to run on inventory and I want to stop the session after every 10 items and start a new session. This is to avoid the resource PC crashing issues we are facing with chrome when running 1 session for a long time. Hence I want something Login - Run 10 items - Logout. This to be repeated till all volume is not completed.
    Is there a suggested design that can help on this?

    @Nilesh Jadhav - Thanks for sharing the other post, I checked it. We can try few of those things if it works, however is there a way to make the scheduler dynamically to run again and again till all WQ items are completed? ​

    Hi Mayank,

    Try to clear chrome history every 3 to 4 hour so you will not face chrome issue (Ctrl + Shift + Delete - select advanced tab - select all checkbox and click on clear).

    There are no such option to make dynamic scheduler but still doing RND for same and will get back to you.

    Thanks

    @Nilesh Jadhav - Clearing chrome history is not a challenge and that works well, there is a setting to clear cookies at closing chrome. Enabling that setting takes care of it. Thing is there should be some option to extend scheduler dynamically at run time so that session can be ended and recreated dynamically.

    @Eric Wilson, @Ami Barrett - Kindly suggest if there is a way to implement this in BP as per current functionality of product? ​​​

    Dynamic scheduling has been acknowledged in the ideas page (and I believe on our roadmap) as something intended to be integrated at some point. In the mean time, it's possible to have an external process (VB, C#, whatever works best for you) query the BP database for relevant information, then execute a process using AutomateC commands. Limiting to 10 items per run would have to be configured within the process using a counter you create.

    ​Hi Mayank,

    Use garbage collection action, after one item is completed/exception.
