Adding or Editing Tasks for Analysis Automation Procedures

Last Modified: September 24, 2021

Use tasks to analyze data with analysis automation procedures.

  1. In Analysis Automation, click Instance on the dashboard.
  2. Click Tasks and select the task type. Refer to the following table to determine the task type you need to use.
    Task Type Description
    Manual Tasks User starts analysis automation tasks manually.
    Triggered Tasks Analysis automation tasks start automatically when new or changed files become available. The DataFinder instance defined as the data source for a task notifies Analysis Automation about new or changed files. SystemLink automatically enables the checkbox Notify Analysis Automation about new or changed files on the Index tab in Data Indexing when you select a data source.
    Scheduled Tasks Analysis automation procedures start according to the configured schedule.
  3. Click Add. On the General tab, specify a task name, and select a data source and the analysis automation procedure you want to use.
  4. On the Access Control tab, specify the user context to define who can work with tasks. Analysis Automation uses this setting when executing the query, uploading results to the file service, or updating tags.

    The search results depend on the privileges the user has in one or more workspaces, as the workspaces determine the data pool.

    User Context Description
    Advanced Analysis Privileges SystemLink executes the task with the privileges to update, upload, and query all data files in all workspaces and to create, update, and query tags.

    Analysis scripts written in DIAdem using the REST API will run with the user context of the user specified in the script.

    Logged-in user SystemLink executes the task with the privileges assigned to the logged-in user.
    Restricted Analysis Privileges SystemLink executes the task with the privileges to query all data files and tags in all workspaces. Privileges to update and upload data files and create and update tags are restricted to one output workspace.
    Role SystemLink executes the task with the privileges assigned to the service role you choose from the dropdown menu. In addition, the service role can only access the data within the workspace you configure in the next step.
  5. Choose a workspace to determine which users can execute this task and the privileges with which Analysis Automation executes the task. If you are working within the Role user context, the workspace determines which data the service role can access. Within the Restricted Analysis Privileges user context, the workspace determines to which workspace the task writes results.
  6. Optional: Modify any parameters on the Parameters tab, like the output folder.
  7. If you are configuring a scheduled task, select the Scheduler tab to configure when and how often the task runs.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Apply to accept the settings.
  10. To edit a task, choose a task and select »Edit.
