The jobs panel shows the available system jobs within the SanteDB server. System jobs are implementations of the IJob interface and may be run on a schedule (such as cleaning or maintenance jobs) or might be one off jobs. Jobs are shown with their last execution time and current status.
Jobs are run in the background and can execute without blocking other processes. The Jobs panel can be used to see the last time a job was run, its outcome and to manually kickstart the job.
The jobs panel summary shows the list of jobs registered on the dCDR or iCDR.
The columns for the job indicate:
  • Name - The name and description of the job which is represented.
  • Schedule / Repeat - Indicates the configured schedule for the job.
  • Current State - Shows the current status of the job.
    • Running - The job is currently executing in the background
    • Aborted - The job started, however due to an error it had to stop
    • Not Yet Run - The job has never been run
    • Complete - The job has completed successfully
    • Cancelled - The job was cancelled before it could be completed
  • Actions - Allows the administrator to control the job:
    • Run - Run the job immediately
    • Cancel - (if supported) Send a cancellation request to the job
    • Schedule - Modify or set the job's schedule

Running a Job

When you run a system job you will be prompted to provide any job parameters (if any) which will control the execution of the task.
After setting parameters and pressing Ok administrators will be asked to confirm the execution of the job.

Scheduling Jobs

This feature is only available in administrative portals > version 2.1.165
SanteDB jobs can be run on a schedule. The schedule for jobs are persisted (by default) in the xcron.xml file in the installation directory (this can be changed by registering or implementing IJobScheduleManager).
Scheduling a job is performed by clicking on the Schedule button on the job summary page.
Upon opening the job schedule, a window will appear allowing the user to configure a job schedule. There are two methods for setting a job schedule:

Interval Schedule

An interval schedule is used when the job should be run on a regular timed interval. This timer is started when the SanteDB host process is started and repeats at the specified timing.

Calendar Schedule

A calendar schedule should be used whenever the job needs to be executed on a repeated calendar day. For example, to refresh the materialized views at 11 PM every day starting January 26, 2022.
If a future date or time is specified, then the job will only run
