Toad Intelligence Central 5.1 - Quick Start Guide

Email Users

You can send an email to a user by clicking the user's name when it is displayed in the Details pane. A user name can be displayed in one or more fields in the Details pane.

  1. In the Details pane, click a user name displayed in one of the fields, such as Publisher, Updated, Visibility, or Managers.
  2. This action opens an email pre-populated with the user’s address and the object name. Add a message and additional information before sending the email.

 

Modify Execution Schedule

You can modify the execution schedule for a snapshot or an Automation script through the Web Console (Web Server). A user with Manage privileges to the object can modify its schedule.

To modify the schedule for a snapshot or Automation script

  1. In the Web interface, click Home.
  2. Select an object to display object details.
  3. In the Details pane, click Schedule to open the Alter Schedule dialog.
  4. (Automation script) To execute the script immediately, select the Execute once at option.
  5. ( Snapshot and Automation script) To schedule a recurring execution, select a frequency and a start date.
    • To schedule more than one execution within one day, select Other and specify a frequency.
  6. (Automation script) To disable the script, select Disable this scheduled automation.

 

Alter Script Credentials

An Automation script running in Intelligence Central runs under a specified user account. Initially, this run account is specified at the time the script is published. After the script is published, you can use the Alter Credentials dialog to perform the following tasks:

  • Change the account under which the script runs
  • Change the password for the current run account

Only users with the Administrator role or with Manage privileges to the Automation script can change the account under which the script runs.

Alter Automation script user account

  1. In the Web interface, click Home.
  2. Select an Automation script to display object details.
  3. In the Details pane, click Credentials to open the Alter Credentials dialog. Select one of the following:
    • Specify user to execute automation script—Select to specify a Windows user account. Then enter account credentials.
    • Use default user to execute automation script—Select to use the default user account, which is the account under which the Toad Intelligence Central App Server is currently running.

      For best results when using the default user (App Server) account to run scripts, give this account all the necessary permissions to successfully execute the scripts. Normally, the Intelligence Central App Server uses the server's Local System user account.

    To limit the script run time, enter a maximum run time in Script execution limit.

  4. If you want to change the password for the current run account (if Windows user account), enter the new password and click Save. This action updates the password for each script that runs under this user account.

 

Modify Variable Default Value

A view or Automation script can contain one or more variables. Each variable has a default value. The initial default value is specified when the view or script is published from Toad Data Point.

You can modify a variable default value for a view or Automation script through the Web Console (Web Server). You can modify the default value for objects to which you have Manage privileges.

When downloading a view or manually running an Automation script that contains a variable, Intelligence Central allows users to enter a variable value. This run-time value applies to the current download or execution and does not change the default value. See Work with Toad Data Point Objects for more information.

To modify variable default value

  1. In the Web interface, click Home.
  2. Select an object containing a variable to modify.
  3. In the lower portion of the Details pane, select the Variables tab or click Expand and then select the Variables tab.

    Note: The Variables tab displays only for objects containing one or more variables.

  4. Enter a new value in the Default Value column.
    • For a view, the new value will be used when the result set is returned.
    • For a script, the new value is used when the scheduled script is executed.
