Identity Finder - Running Console Service Jobs
This article provides an overview of the various service jobs available from the Identity Finder Console. All documentation was performed with Identity Finder Enterprise Console version 22.214.171.124.
For additional documentation see the help document at Identity Finder Service Jobs.
WARNING: Some Service Jobs, like Purge Matches and Purge Results, are destructive. Therefore, it is critical that you configure your Service Jobs carefully to avoid causing accidental data loss for other users. If you are creating a Service Job that alters the database, you must make sure to include a filter for your tag(s), and do not use a dynamic tag for your filter.
To setup a service job:
- Login to the console and navigate to the Admin tab. Once on the Admin tab, select the Service Jobs list item.
- Choose the button from the ribbon menu.
- The Add Service Job window will open. From here you can choose the job type and when it will run.
- After you have set your job as you want it, click the OK button. The service job will run at the time you specified.
NOTE: Certain tasks such as purging data can take a long time if you perform it on many endpoints. It is preferable to do such jobs at a time where you will not be accessing the console for those endpoints.
Synchronize Active Directory Tags:
This job updates existing Active Directory Tag types with computers that have been added or removed to the active directory object.
Update Policy States:
Updates a policy's state across all endpoints.
NOTE: There are two scheduled jobs for the job types above already set on the console. Do not change these as they are the defaults needed by the console!
This removes unmanaged endpoints that do not have any results data. It is not recommended to run this job as it affects all endpoints.
All results for selected endpoints are deleted from the console. Filters can be set based on a variety of criteria from tags to match type.
Similar to purging results except logs are deleted from the console.
