There are two types of Automation Tasks in HelloID:
- Pre-defined tasks, available in HelloID's built-in Task Catalog
- Custom tasks, based on user-defined PowerShell scripts
To see an overview of the existing tasks within your HelloID environment, go to Automation > Tasks.
Tasks can be used in the following ways:
- In task data sources
- To automatically run on a regular schedule
- To perform actions during IdP synchronizations (these tasks are automatically created by HelloID when you add an Identity Provider)
The following information is displayed for tasks:
The name and icon of the automation task.
The current state of the task. Select the state to navigate to the Task History view. A play or stop button is also present. These buttons will start or stop a task, respectively.
Tasks may be modified or deleted by selecting the Edit or Delete links, respectively. You should always make sure a task has been stopped before editing it.
