Scheduler

This section describes how to configure and execute PKD Scheduler tasks.The PKD Scheduler enables you to automate NPKD updates and you can schedule download of recent ICAO PKD objects and, depending of validity checks, publish and/or unpublish the objects. You can schedule the tasks to be run automatically on a specified at a set time or run manually.

The PKD Scheduler configuration page allows Administrators to configure Scheduler tasks and schedule their time for repeated execution. For more information on Scheduler tasks details, see Operations.

Running the PKD Scheduler is a server operation and once started cannot be interrupted by any user. When a Scheduler run is complete, the PKD Scheduler page shows a cross-reference to the PKD Scheduler audit log.
