ProVision 5.1.0 – Feature Spotlight – Task Scheduler

by | June 18, 2015

One of the features that we wanted to implement was the ability to provisioning tasks without being in front of the GUI. The issue was that to do it “right” we needed to ensure that there was a cohesive and unified queuing system to ensure that actions could be taken immediately as well as scheduled out in advance.

Task Scheduler_1

The end result is a robust system that allows for a variety of task frequencies, and will be shipping with the following three tasks to start:

  • Process Holding Tank – Removes IP Blocks from the Holding Tank and returns them to the available pool.
  • DNS Zone Transfer – Pushes zone updates to the appropriate DNS server/service
  • Backup – Performs a data backup to the 6connect cloud servers or to the local server of your choice

Task Scheduler - 2

Once you have defined the basic functions of your task, you can then set the frequency and timing of the task.

We plan on adding more pre-defined tasks in addition to some additional customization options, but wanted to focus on these core functions for our first release of the feature.

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”
