About jobs

A job is an automated process for deploying one or more components from the Web Portal to a number of devices, either immediately or at a scheduled time.

When a quick job is set up or a job is scheduled, the Web Portal signals the targeted devices that a job needs to be run. The Agent will download the job and run the script.

Jobs can be scheduled for individual devices, sites, filters or groups. You cannot run a job at the account level. The following operating systems support running jobs:

  • Windows
  • macOS
  • Linux

Quick jobs

A quick job allows you to immediately deploy one component without having to schedule the job. Refer to Quick jobs.

Job scheduler
