Creating Data Replication Tasks

To create a new data replication task:
  1. Select the management context from the context selection box, then select Mass Data Tasks | Data Replication Tasks.
    This lists all replication tasks in the current management context.
  2. Click New.
    The replication task details view is displayed.
  3. Provide a start date for the new replication task. Optionally, provide a due date.
    The start date determines when the replication task changes from Pending to Waiting. Having reached the state Waiting, the system administrator can include the replication task in a replication process to execute the task.

    The due date indicates when the task should be completed. The due date is for information only. A task does not automatically become obsolete when the due date has been reached.
    Note: Once the replication task has been submitted, start date and due date cannot be edited anymore.
  4. Click Apply.
    This creates the new replication task. All other tabs become active.
Tip: You can copy replication tasks by clicking the Copy button on the General tab of the replication task detail view. This is useful, for example, when defining multiple replication tasks that differ only regarding certain details, such as the start date.
