Manage applications

This subtopic provides instructions on how to access, edit, and delete applications.

Access applications

Select Application.
The Applications page is displayed. It lists all the applications available currently on the system. Use it to add, delete, view, and edit applications.

View or edit an application

Use the following procedure to view or edit an application.

  1. Select Application.
  2. On the Applications page, click the name of the application you want to view or edit. The Application Details page of the application you selected is displayed.
  3. View or edit the information displayed.
  4. The Application Details page varies for the different application types. It dynamically displays the attributes for the respective application type. You can edit all the standard settings of an application, except application type.
  5. If you edit the information, click Save to preserve the changes.

Delete an application

Use the following procedure to delete an application.

  1. Select Application. The Applications page is displayed.
  2. Select the check box for the application you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. When prompted, confirm that any subscription to this application will be lost.

Configure a schedule for a maintenance application

SecureTransport allows you to schedule maintenance events that will be executed once at a specified time in the future or at periodic intervals. You can access the scheduler page by creating or editing any maintenance application.

To schedule a maintenance event:

  1. Select Application and click Add New or select a maintenance application from the list.
  2. Scroll down to the Schedule pane and click Configure.
  3. The Configure Schedule dialog box is displayed.
  4. Select the event's timing:
    • One-time event – the event is executed once at the specified date and time.
    • Recurrent – the event is executed at the specified periodic intervals until it is deleted.
      1. Specify Recurrence for the event by selecting one of the supported intervals: Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly. If you select CRON Expression, enter your quartz cron expressions in the text box, each on a new line.
      2. In the Length of Recurrence pane, select a specific start day and time, end day and time, both, or neither. By default, a recurring event's schedule begins as soon as it is created, and continues indefinitely, until it is disabled.
  5. Choose whether the task should be performed if it falls on a day specified as a holiday in the Holiday Schedule. Note that the Holiday Schedule functionality does not allow for executing a scheduled task on the next working day if the specified date happens to be a holiday – when this occurs, the tasks are not executed.
  6. Click OK when finished setting the schedule.
  7. Note If you configure a schedule and save it after the scheduled start time, the task will not be executed. You must save your configured schedule before the scheduled start time.

Before queuing a new task, the server checks if a previous instance of same periodic task is still pending. If there is a pending instance of the same periodic scheduled task , the new task is not scheduled.

If the server goes down for some time and restarts, the scheduler does not execute any scheduled tasks missed during the server down time.

Create applications

Every application in SecureTransport must be based on an application type. Currently, SecureTransport supports 17 application types. The following topics describe the specific attributes and considerations for and how to create applications of each application type:
