Create New Job

Populate the following fields:

  • Type*: Enter the type of scheduled job. If this is a Data Import, additional fields will appear below. Please see the following information section for Data Import-specific details.

  • Name*: Enter the name of the scheduled job. 

  • Priority*: Enter the run priority of this job as compared to other jobs scheduled to run at the same time. This must be an integer between 0 and 255.

  • Frequency*: How often the job will run. Based on the frequency selection, additional fields will expand to allow you to select the day/hour/minute that the job should run, along with the start and end dates.

  • Mapping: The data mapping to use for the file being processed, with each column mapping entry separated with commas. Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.). Excel files must be mapped within the files themselves (in the first row) and this Mapping field should remain blank if using an Excel file. For detailed directions on mapping import files, please consult the Assetas Technical User Manual.

  • Header Row: The row number that contains the header information.  Leave blank if your file does not contain a header row. Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.).

  • Start Row: The first row of the data file that contains the data to import. Rows before this are ignored. Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.).

  • End Row: The last row of the data file that contains the data to import. Rows after this are ignored. Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.).

  • Delimiter: The delimiter that separates the columns in the data file. Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.).

  • Datetime Format: The format of the date/times in the data file (for example, yyyy-MM-dd). Please note that this only applies to text files (CSV, tab-delimited, etc.).

  • Time Zone: The time zone that is used for dates in the data file (applies to all types of files).

  • Allow FTP Imports: This toggle controls if files should be pulled in from an FTP. Toggling this to ‘On’ reveals additional data fields to input the FTP server, port, username, password, folder, file filter, and post-processing file handling. For detailed directions on setting up an FTP import, please consult the Assetas Technical User Manual.

  • Comments: Any comments you would like to store for this scheduled job.

​Once scheduled jobs have been created, manage these records to maintain accurate information. 

  1. Edit: Select the "Edit" button to the right of the scheduled job name, under Actions.

  2. Delete: You may delete a scheduled job from this menu.

Manage scheduled jobs

Rather than deletion, we recommend disabling a job by setting the “End Date” to any date in the past and the job will no longer execute.

Users are not able to delete the “Data Retention Policy” job, as these parameters are controlled in the Account Details, under Data Retention.
