Aggregations tasks are processes that run continually in order to feed query data to dashboard widgets or vertical applications. They are created in the search window when the query is saved as a new data source.
In this tab of the Administration → Data Management area you can perform the following tasks:
Filter aggregation tasks
This tab lists the aggregation tasks set up by yourself, or the ones that have been created in the domain. If you think you might not be seeing the most recent data, you can click the Refresh button above the table. The Status column shows if the task is active (green) or inactive (red). If the icon is yellow, it indicates the aggregation task is being removed, started or stopped.
You can switch between showing aggregation tasks used in dashboards and aggregation tasks used in applications by clicking the buttons above the table. You can also click the corresponding icon at the end of the row.
If you need to show the aggregation tasks of a specific time period you can use the buttons above the table.
You can filter specific content in the table using the column filters. Click the filter of the desired column and write the desired text. The filter icon will turn green and the table will show only those aggregation tasks containing that string in that column. This method can be used to filter by Name and Owner.
You can also filter by clicking cells on the table, or a specific part of it (for example, a tag or a status icon), to use its content as filtering criteria. The table will only show those aggregation tasks containing that information. This method can be used to filter by Status, Owner and Tag.
You can also negate filters, in other words, use the filtering criteria to hide data instead of isolating it. This way the table will show everything except the data meeting the filtering criteria. To do that, click the Negate Filter button. They will be displayed in green if they are active and in red if they are negated.
If you want to remove the applied filters, you need to proceed depending on the method used. To remove those applied using the column filters, you need to delete the text written in each column filter. To remove those applied by clicking cells on the table, you need to click the cross next to each filtering criterion that appears next to Filtered by above the table.
Manage aggregation tasks
To manage an aggregation task, place the cursor over the desired task row to highlight it and click the ellipsis icon that appears at the end of the row. You can access the following options:
To access the info, you can also click the corresponding cell under the Name column.
Here you can check and edit the aggregation task details.
Perform the desired changes and select Update to apply them.
If you want to restart the aggregation task from the date initially set, click Rebuild.
To open the query you used to feed the aggregation task so you can edit it, click the Edit button beneath the query dialog.
Make the required changes in the query, then select the Edit DataSource icon that appears in the toolbar and click Update to apply your modifications.
Run / Stop
Run or stop the aggregation task.
Delete the aggregation task, thus removing all the data generated. You must stop an aggregation task in order to delete it, otherwise the option will not show.
