A job is an automated process for deploying one or more components to a number of devices, either immediately or at a scheduled time. When a job runs, the Agent downloads the job to the local hard drive of the device or devices, unpacks the package into its component parts, and runs the script. Jobs can be scheduled for individual devices, sites, filters, or groups. The following device types support running jobs:
NOTE A quick job allows you to immediately deploy one component without having to schedule the job. Refer to Quick jobs - New UI BETA.
You may filter components by component group using the filter drop-down menu, or you may search for components using the search bar at the top of the Component Library. Refer to Manage component groups for more information about component groups. You will only be able to see the components available for your component level. Refer to Component Level for more information.
NOTE All components of the categories Applications and Scripts are available for jobs.
Once the component has been added, click X to close the Component Library and return to the Create a Job page. You can then configure any required variables for the component. You may also add or remove components.
Multiple components will run sequentially in the order in which they are added. You can change this order by dragging and dropping the components on the page in the order in which you want them to run.
Click Add Target to open the Targets pane. Click Add to add the selected target or Delete to remove it. When creating and scheduling a job from a device page or a devices table, the selected target will automatically be populated in this section.
You may filter on the following target types:
- Device filters: You can select any of the default device filters provided by RMM, as well as custom device filters and site device filters. For more information, refer to Filters.
Edit the sites for the device filter by clicking the pencil icon on the Create a Job page.
Within the Filter by Site(s) pane, toggle the All Sites button off to only select certain sites instead of all sites. You may also search for sites using the search bar. These changes will be reflected on the Create a Job page. If specific sites are selected, hover over the number of sites to see which sites have been selected for this device filter.
- Device groups and site device groups: For more information about groups, refer to Groups.
- Site groups: For more information about groups, refer to Groups.
NOTE Site groups must first be configured within the current UI. Refer to Create Site Groups.
You may also search for targets using the search bar. A check in the corner next to a target indicates that it has already been added to the job. Click X to close the Targets pane and return to the Create a Job page.
A scheduled job allows you to run one or more components immediately or at a scheduled time. Select an option from the Recurrence drop-down menu to schedule your job. The calendar view will provide a visual indicator of when the job will run according to the selected schedule. The following options are available:

Editing a job
IMPORTANT A job can only be edited, deleted, or retired by an Administrator or a user with the same security level as the one that was used when the job was created. For example, if a job was created by a user with Administrator security level, non-Administrator users will be unable to edit, delete, or retire that job.
