Manual tasks refer to the tasks that are created with the scheduling type of Manual Tasks and submitted to the scheduling system. After submitted to the scheduling system, manual tasks do not run unless manually triggered.
Default display rules are displayed as follows.
- Displays workflow tasks first
- Displays the tasks under the account currently logged on
Note: Manual tasks do not run automatically and must be manually triggered.
This list displays submitted manual tasks. You can trigger a manual task instance by clicking the Run button on the action bar of the manual task list.
Filter: As shown in area ① in the preceding figure, various filtering conditions are provided to help you filter out the tasks you want. You can make accurate filtrations by task type, task name, owner, and tasks modified today.
Note: The result of search by task name is subject to other filtering conditions. Only items matching all those filtering conditions are displayed.
Operation: As shown in area ② in the preceding figure, you can perform such operations on the task as running, viewing its instances, and changing the owner.
Note: View Instances action takes you to the manual task list, which displays all instances of the task.
Batch operation: As shown in area ③ in the preceding figure, you can select tasks in batch and change their owners.
Note: Selection of resource groups is not supported for manual tasks.
In the DAG, you can select a task or workflow to view its properties and operation logs. You can also modify the properties of the task, but only the task owner can be modified for manual tasks.
Note: The properties of workflows are different from those of internal nodes in that the code content on the latter can be viewed.
For a workflow task, you can only change its owner and view the operation log. This log records the operations performed on this task, such as updating workflow content, re-running task instances, and running the task.
- Internal node of a workflow
For an internal node of a workflow, you can change its owner and view the operation log. This log records the operations performed on this task, such as updating workflow content, re-running task instances, and running the task. You can also view but cannot modify the code of the node.
- Right-clicking a workflow or an internal node
After right-clicking a workflow or an internal node, an action box shown in the preceding figure is displayed, and you can choose to run the task or view instances.
- To expand or collapse a workflow
You can expand or collapse a workflow by clicking the button in the red frame.
