Task Errors

Task Errors Options

Description

As part of AutoMate's tri-level error handling functionality, these settings specify what the system should do if any managed task receives an error or fails to run properly. These parameters are handled globally for all tasks that run on a system.

Parameters

Property

Description

E-mail error notification for all tasks

If enabled, AutoMate monitors all tasks and will send an e-mail notification containing details about the error or task failure in case one occurs (disabled by default). Enabling this option activates the following parameters below.

To

The e-mail recipient. This must be a valid e-mail address (for example, sparky@networkautomation.com). This parameter is active only if the E-mail error notification for all tasks parameter is enabled.

From

AutoMate uses this for the "From" field of the e-mail. Some mail servers require that this be a valid e-mail address (for example, sparky@networkautomation.com), while others allow any text (for example, "AutoMate on Test Machine"). This parameter is active only if the E-mail error notification for all tasks parameter is enabled.

Attach task file

When this check box is enabled, AutoMate will attach a copy of the task file (i.e. the task steps) associated with the failing task. This file can be opened in any AutoMate Task Builder to investigate the cause of the error. This parameter is active only if the E-mail error notification for all tasks parameter is enabled.

Run task on error

If enabled, allows another AutoMate managed task to execute upon an error occurring in any task. Click the drop-down arrow to select from the list of managed tasks.
