Scheduler Components

Taskmatics Scheduler™ is based on the interactivity of three simple concepts:

  • Tasks — A task represents a unit of work. It is the core component of Taskmatics Scheduler™. Examples of tasks include things like file generation, feed processing, file transferring or other ETL type processes. Tasks can range in complexity from a simple file copy process to a multi-tiered custom process created by your development team. The possibilities are endless given the extensibility of the system.
  • Triggers — A trigger is an event that signals the start of a task. A calendar based event, for example, will kick off a task at a specific date and time. Other common events include: While we supply triggers to handle a variety of events, your development team can use our simple API to create custom triggers to handle any scenario your organization encounters.
  • Events and Event Handlers — An event represents a type of notification originating from a task running in the Taskmatics Scheduler™ environment. These events are handled by one or more event handlers configured to listen and react to the event, allowing Taskmatics Scheduler™ to interact with other systems in your organization. As with tasks and triggers, the Taskmatics Scheduler™ API allows for the creation of custom events as well as custom handlers to react to those events.
