The Task Details view in HelloID provides you with information about individual task instances (executions) that have occurred in your HelloID environment. It includes information such as when the task was run, who ran it, what variables were available at runtime, and a log of what occurred.
Also see Task History - Overview.
Go to Automation > Task history to get started. Find the task whose details you wish to view, and select its State label or Details link.
The Task Details view is separated into three tabs: Summary, Progress Log, and Input Variables.
The Summary tab provides an overview of the task result, and contains three major components:
You may retry the task, run a new instance of the task, edit the task, or return to the previous view.
- Status Summary
When the task started, finished, its total duration, who started it, and its current status.
- Summary Log
All message logged in the task using the Hid-Write-Summary cmdlet. In the above example (an Active Directory synchronization task), 10 users and zero groups were successfully synchronized from Active Directory.
The Progress Log tab contains a verbose version of the Summary Log. It also reports information on which Agent executed the task, including its public IP address, local IP address, name, and version. This can help quickly troubleshoot Agents without pulling their complete logs. These messages are logged using the Hid-Write-Status cmdlet.
If you go to this tab while the task is in a Running state, you can see the log update in real time. Select the Pause Log button to pause real-time logging, if you want to focus on a particular piece of the log.
The Input Variables tab lists all the variables (both task-specific and global) that were available to the task at runtime, and what their resolved values were. This is useful for troubleshooting failed tasks where a variable did not yield the expected value in the task script.
