Creating preload tasks

You can create a preload task for an app from Associated items on the App edit page. The creation of a new preload task can also be initiated from the Tasks overview page, see Creating preload tasks from Tasks.

Do the following:

  1. Open the QMC: https://<QPS server name>/qmc

  2. Select Apps on the QMC start page or from the Start Arrow down drop-down menu to display the overview.

  3. Select the app that you want to create a preload task for and click Edit in the action bar.
  4. Select Tasks under Associated items.
  5. Click Create new Preload task in the action bar on the tasks page.

    The Edit preload task page is displayed.

  6. Edit the properties.

    1. You can change the task name in the Name field. By default the name is Preload task of <App name >.
    2. App displays the app that you selected from the overview. You can change which app you are creating the task for by clicking the App field. In the dialog that opens, double-click the app that you want this task to preload.

    3. You can change the Execution properties, see descriptions below. The task is Enabled Check mark by default. Clear the selection to disable the task.
    4. A task must have at least one trigger to be executed automatically. Manage the triggers by clicking ActionsArrow down in the Triggers table heading and selecting one of the following:

      • Create new once-only trigger, Create new hourly trigger, Create new daily trigger, Create new weekly trigger, or Create new monthly trigger. These are trigger shortcuts and the trigger that you select is added to the table instantly. The start value for the trigger is set to 5 minutes from when it was created and the trigger is enabled.
      • Create new scheduled trigger or Create new task event trigger to create a new trigger of the selected type (see the property descriptions below). A dialog opens. Edit the trigger and click OK to close the dialog and add the trigger to the table.
      • Edit if you want to open the edit dialog for the trigger that is selected in the table. Edit the trigger and click OK to close the dialog and save your changes.
      • Delete if you want to delete the trigger that is selected in the table.
      Clicking undo () in the Triggers heading applies to all triggers you are currently editing.
    5. You can change the Preload settings, see descriptions below. By default, an app is preloaded for 240 minutes and all nodes are available for preloads.

    6. Optionally, apply tags.
    7. Optionally, apply custom properties.
  7. Click Apply to create and save the rule.
