Server tasks can automate routine jobs. Each server task can have one trigger configured. If the task needs to be run with various events, there has to be separate server task for each trigger. ERA includes six predefined Server Task types.
Server tasks and permissions
The task and trigger both need an executing user. This is the user who modifies the task (and trigger). This user must have sufficient permissions for the chosen action. During execution, the task always takes the executing user from the trigger. If the task is run using the Run task immediately after finish setting, the executing user is the user logged into the ERA Web Console. A user has permissions (Read, Use, Write) for the selected server task instance if it has those permissions selected in its permission set (Admin > Access Rights > Permission Sets) and has these permissions set for that Static Group where the server task is located. See the list of permissions for more information on access rights.
Permissions needed for certain server task actions
•To create a new server task, the user needs write permission for the selected task type and proper access rights for the referenced objects (computers, licenses, groups).
•To modify a server task, the user needs write permission for the selected server task instance and proper access rights for the referenced objects (computers, licenses, groups).
•To remove a server task, the user needs write permission for the selected server task instance.
•To run a server task, the user needs use permission for the selected server task instance.
