Using Advanced Tasks
The advanced tasks service extends the current Appspace device management framework to allow for device tasks to be created and scheduled by administrators. A device task represents a specific action to be performed on the device and the resulting response from executing the task.
Creating a Task
Define the common parameters and add a task definition. You can also add unique parameters and output transforms.
Deploying a Task
From the network tree, select the network, player group or specific device you would like to deploy the task to. Click Select to confirm your selection.
Select the task schedule and click Save when finished. The task will now be deployed.
An application needs to be assigned to the device before you are able to deploy a task. Whenever you make a selection, the item will then be added to the table of deployment locations. You may choose to add more than one deployment location.
The response will be displayed as soon as the device returns the response to the Appspace server.
Deleting a Deployed Task
From either the Monitoring Tasks or Advanced Tasks tab, check the box next to the Name of the task(s) that you would like to delete. Click the Delete button (trash button).
