After you configure or modify a task flow, you must publish the latest task flow to an online environment. This effectively prevents the modified task flow from being published before the modifications to the task flow are confirmed.

Prerequisites

A task flow is configured. For more information, see Configure a task flow.

Publish a task flow

  1. Create and connect task nodes in a task flow.
  2. Optional:Click Try Run. In the message that appears, click OK.

    Run at the specified time Click the Hide/Show icon for a test run icon and select Run at the specified time. In the Run at the specified time dialog box, specify the date and point in time to run the task flow.

    Run at a specified time range Click the Hide/Show icon for a test run icon and select Run at a specified time range. In the Run at a specified time range dialog box, set the Business Date and Scheduling cycle parameters. DMS will run the task flow based on your configurations.
    Note Before you publish the task flow, your modifications to the task flow and test runs do not affect the existing task flow that is running in an online environment.

    You can also make multiple modifications to the task flow at a time and then publish the modified task flow.
