    Using Schedules in Enterprise Manager Portal

    Tasks to use a schedule are:

    1. Creating a Schedule in Enterprise Manager Portal
    2. Applying a Schedule to a Service in Enterprise Manager Portal

    Creating a Schedule in Enterprise Manager Portal

    To create a schedule:

    1. Click the Schedules tab.

      The Schedules page appears.

    2. In the Schedules page, click Create.

      The Schedule Definition Page appears.

    3. Enter field values to define a schedule, and click Save.

      See Schedule Fields in Enterprise Manager Portal.

      A description of the schedule appears in the Schedules page.

      Note: The system generates the description of the service. If you want a page to display a different description, you can edit the JSP page and change and compile the Java classes found in the WAR file. If you need assistance to make these changes, contact Juniper Professional Services.

    Applying a Schedule to a Service in Enterprise Manager Portal

    Before you can schedule a subscription, you must define a schedule.

    To apply a schedule to a service that was configured earlier:

    1. In the navigation pane of Enterprise Manager Portal, click the subscriber for which you want to schedule a service.
    2. Click the tab for the type of service to be scheduled:
      • Bandwidth or Bandwidth & VPNs
      • Firewall

        Note: If VPN features are not configured, the tab is named Bandwidth.

    3. On the same line as the service to be assigned to a schedule, select the name of a schedule under Schedule, and click Apply.

      The service provider controls which services can be scheduled. Text on the page indicates which services cannot be scheduled.
