Scheduled Task profiles enables you combine tasks into a cohesive and standardized task that makes managing devices faster and easier. Access to profiles is based upon the account level where they are created. For example, a profile created at a Service Organization level is available at all customers and sites within that organization. A profile created at the customer level is available to that customer only.
A Scheduled Task Profile will stop running if the probe associated with the profile is moved (for example, after moving a device). To continue running the profile:
- Install another probe in the environment
- Modify the rule that the scheduled task profile is associated with to reengage the probe. This can be as simple as renaming the rule.
This procedure cannot be performed at the device level.
- Click Configuration > Security Manager > Profiles.
- Click Add and select the type of task to create.
You can check the progress of scheduled task profiles by clicking the Profile Based tab a the top of the window. The table provides information on when the profile was run and whether it completed successfully.
