About quick jobs
A quick job allows you to immediately deploy a component without having to create and schedule the job. Components must first be downloaded from the ComStore into your Component Library. Refer to ComStore. Components can only be added from the ComStore if you have Manage access to ComStore. Refer to ComStore in Security Levels.
Quick jobs can be run only on servers or workstations.
Similar to scheduled jobs, quick jobs can be run against individual devices, sites, filters, or groups.
Quick jobs are run immediately and do not have an expiration time. They always run in the LocalSystem Account. However, it is possible to force the execution of a script to run in the context of the local user by creating a scheduled job and selecting the Run as a logged in user option within the Execution section. Refer to Execution.
NOTE Since quick jobs do not have an expiration time, they will remain in an active state for devices that are not able to receive it (for example, offline devices). If necessary, you can manually clean up quick jobs by deleting them. Refer to Delete.
- Follow any of the navigation paths described in Running a quick job.
- From the pane that opens to the right, click Select to add a component. Refer to Components.
- The confirmation dialog box that appears will indicate if you are running a quick job against more than one device. Hover over the link showing the number of devices to see a list of hostnames.
NOTE All components of the categories Applications and Scripts are available for jobs. Refer to List of components.
- Once the component is selected, you'll see its description, if available. If the component has variables, you can configure them now.
Variable value limit: 20,000 characters.
- Click Run to execute the action or Cancel to close out of the dialog box.
A pop-up notification will indicate if the job has been created successfully.
NOTE Only jobs with the Active status can be edited.
Follow any of the navigation paths described in Editing a quick job. On the Edit a Job page, complete the sections below to modify an existing job. You may also delete, retire, or copy the job by clicking the corresponding button at the top of the page.
IMPORTANT A job can only be edited, copied, deleted, or retired by an Administrator or a user with the same security level as the one that was used when the job was created. For example, if a job was created by a user with Administrator security level, non-Administrator users will be unable to edit, copy, delete, or retire that job.
