Remote Control - Restart Task Connector

[ | version 3.0]

Connector

The connector is permitted for use of the platform background agent.

Connector processing type: Row by row!

Restart Task Connector manages task restarts using a token-based remote control system. This connector allows users to configure and handle task restart operations, particularly in scenarios where tasks fail, need rescheduling, or need to be switched to the Parked state.

Remote control - allow control via Token

For proper connector functionality, enabling Remote Control in the company settings for Token capability is essential.


Configuration

Remote Restart Task configuration

Wait Time

Specifies the wait time in seconds before a task is retried.

Restart mode

Provides different modes Scheduled / Parked

  • Scheduled mode is used when you want to plan the task's run.

Example: If you set this mode and run the task twice in succession with a Wait time of 10 seconds and Number of retry attempts set to 2, the task will run for 10 seconds in progress. Subsequently, the next run will also be in progress for 10 seconds, and automatically, two additional runs will be initiated, each taking 10 seconds​​.

RemoteRestartTaskconfiguration_scheduled

  • Parked mode temporarily stops the execution of a task run without completing or failing it. Tasks can be parked for various reasons, such as waiting for manual intervention, additional data, or resolution of dependencies.

RemoteRestartTaskconfiguration_parked

Number of retry attempts

Sets the number of retry attempts.


Input & Output Schema

Input

Data schema is optional

The connector does not expect a specific schema. The required data structure can be achieved by correct configuration. Although the selected connector doesn't require a schema generally, the individual integration task step may need to match the output data structure of the preceding task step and use a data schema selected from the repository or create a new input schema.

Output
