Scheduling an activity audit log report

To schedule an activity audit log report

  1. Navigate to the Activity Center (Reports > Activity Center).
  2. Use the query options provided to specify the content of the report. By default the audit log returns all activity occurring within the last 24 hours. For more information, see Applying search criteria..

  3. Click Save or Schedule Search.
  4. In the Save Scheduled Report dialog, enter the following information:
    1. Name: Enter a name for the report.
    2. Description: Optionally, enter descriptive text for the report.
    3. To set the schedule, use the following options:

      • Select a time frame:

        • Never: The job will not run according to a set schedule. You can still manually run the job.
        • Minutes: The job runs per the frequency of minutes you specify. For example, Run Every 30/Minutes runs the job every half hour over a 24-hour period. It is recommended you do not use the frequency of minutes except in unusual situations, such as testing.
        • Hours: The job runs per the minute setting you specify. For example, if it is 9 a.m. and you want to run the job every two hours at 15 minutes past the hour starting at 9:15 a.m., select Run Every 2/Hours/@ minutes after the hour 15.

        • Days: The job runs on the frequency of days and the time you enter.

          For example, Run Every 2/Days/Starting @ 11:59:00 PM runs the job every other evening just before midnight.

        • Weeks The job runs per the frequency of weeks at the time and on the days you specify.

          For example, Run Every 2/Weeks/Starting @ 5:00:00 AM and Repeat on these days with MON, WED, FRI selected runs the job every other week at 5 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

        • Months: The job runs on the frequency of months at the time and on the day you specify.

          For example, If you select Run Every 2/Months/Starting @ 1:00:00 AM along with Day of Week of Month/First/Saturday, the job will run at 1 a.m. on the first Saturday of every other month.

      • Select Use Time Windows if you want to enter the Start and End time. You can click Add or Remove to control multiple time restrictions. Each time window must be at least one minute apart and not overlap.

        For example, for a job to run every ten minutes every day from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., enter these values:

        Enter Run Every 10/Minutes and set Use Time Windows:

        • Start 10:00:00 PM and End 11:59:00 PM
        • Start 12:00:00 AM and End 2:00:00 AM

          An entry of Start 10:00:00 PM and End 2:00:00 AM will result in an error as the end time must be after the start time.

        If you have selected Days, Weeks, or Months, you will be able to select the number of times for the job to Repeat in the time window you enter.

        For a job to run two times every other day at 10:30 am between the hours of 4 a.m. and 8 p.m., enter these values:

        For days, enter Run Every 2/Days and set Use Time Windows as Start 4:00:00 AM and End 8:00:00 PM and Repeat 2.

      If the scheduler is unable to complete a task within the scheduled interval, when it finishes execution of the task, it is rescheduled for the next immediate interval.
