Recurring Actions

The Systems  Recurring Actions section allows you to manage recurring actions on the selected client. You can schedule an arbitrary set of Salt states or the highstate to be executed at desired intervals. This is only available for Salt clients.

For more information about Salt states, see Salt States and Pillars.

Currently, SUSE Manager supports the following action types as recurring actions:

  • Highstate: Execute the highstate.

  • Custom state: Execute a set of custom states. A custom state can be either an internal state provided by SUSE Manager, or a configuration channel created by a user.

For more information about configuration channels, see 配置管理.

1. Creating Recurring Actions

To create new schedules, click the Create icon on the top right corner. Choose a supported action type, give your recurring schedule a name, select a time and day for it to recur, and click Create Schedule. Toggle the Test mode switch to test the highstate before you apply it.

2. Recurring Action Details

View the details about an action from the action list. In the Actions column, click the Details icon for the action you are interested in.

3. Disabling Recurring Actions

Disabling an action stops the action recurring, but does not delete it. To disable a recurring action toggle the Active switch off. Enable them again by toggling the Active switch on. Disabled recurring actions remain in the list, but are not executed.

4. Editing Recurring Actions

In the Actions column, click the Edit icon for the action you want to change. On the Schedule Recurring Action page, the existing properties are pre-filled. Make your changes, and click Update Schedule.

5. Deleting Recurring Actions

Deleting an action permanently removes it. To start using the action again, you will need to create a new action. In the Actions column, click the Delete icon for the action you want to delete, and confirm the deletion.
