Rescheduling and Modifying the Recurrence of Jobs in Security Director

You can reschedule a job and modify its recurrence from the Job Management page. You can reschedule and modify jobs only in the following cases:

  • The job supports scheduling and recurrence, and it is currently in the Scheduled state.

  • The schedule of a job in the Failed or Success state is a recurring job

  • The job was created as a recurring job. This behavior is true for all scheduled jobs except the following:

    • Backing up configuration files

    • Backing up the MySQL and PostGreSQL database

    • Generating reports

To reschedule and modify the recurrence of jobs triggered by any user in Junos Space Platform, you must be assigned the privileges of a Job Administrator. However, you can reschedule or modify the recurrence settings of jobs that are scheduled by you.

  1. Select Monitor > Job Management.

    The Job Management page appears.

  2. Select the jobs that you want to reschedule. From the right-click or More menu, select Reschedule Job.

    The Reschedule Job page appears.

  3. Modify the schedule and the recurrence settings for the job according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.
  4. Click OK to reschedule the job.

    You are returned to the Job Management page.
