Using The Scheduler DriveApp

The Scheduler DriveApp is a toolbox of Jobs that can be configured and then run on a schedule.

Jobs are set up in the Scheduler DriveApp and run using the Schedule Connector inside DriveWorks Autopilot.

Jobs have been categorized for easy implementation.

Add the Scheduler DriveApp

The Scheduler DriveApp is added in the DriveApp Administration task.

Adding Jobs

Once the DriveApp has been added and enabled, Jobs can be added by:

  1. Select the Scheduler DriveApp from the Stage 7: DriveApps task, in the Task Explorer.
  2. Click the Add icon.
  3. Enter a Name for the Job.
  4. Select a category, within each category there is a list of different Jobs available.
  5. Select a Job to see the options required for that Job.

Each Job has a description, email details for the Job, and also the specific options to enable the Job to run successfully.

Some Jobs only run in Shared Groups. In these circumstances, a warning will be shown.

The purpose of some Jobs is to send email notifications.

These require email settings.

Some Jobs have an option to send emails, in which case the email details are optional.

Test Jobs

Once a Job has been set up, it can be tested by clicking the Test button.

This will create a specification to be automatically processed by DriveWorks Autopilot.

A specification report will be created to assist with the validation of the options set up for the Job.

Emails

To enable emails, configure the email settings in DriveWorks Autopilot.

Edit Jobs

Once a Job has been added, it can be edited or deleted from the List view.

To edit, select the Job and click the edit icon, this will open the job setup window to edit the options.

To delete, select the Job and click the Delete icon, doing so will cause a delete confirmation box to pop up.

Filter Jobs

Jobs can be filtered with the two controls above the list view.

The Category drop down can be used to filter categories.

The Search text box can filter names.

Scheduling the DriveApp To Run

To schedule the Job, create a Schedule Connector in DriveWorks Autopilot.

Under Actions, select Run DriveApp, enter your DriveApp Alias that the Job was created in, then enter the name of the Job.
