Parcel Service & Task Scheduler

BryanMulder

Hi All,

New OS user here and first time trying the Parcel Service add-on.  I have configured a package and can successfully distribute the package from the Dashboard screen, but I'd like to get this on an automated schedule for distribution at 7 AM daily.  I saw release notes pertaining to DM jobs & BR's established to enable this automation but I'm struggling to get the right configuration.  I assume I would need to call the parameter for package distribution on the task schedule setup but that doesn't seem to be operating.  Does anyone have this functioning & any helpful tips/tricks?  

Many thanks,

Bryan

Hi Bryan

You are correct in stating "I would need to call...."

To configure this, I would create a DM sequence and the following is an example. 

In the first image, the BR, OPS_ShipPackageUsingName, requires a parameter, PackageName, which I provided a value for on the Parameters option of the Business Rule.  Test01 is the name of the Package I created as displayed in the second image.

Create a sequence “Test01” which has the DM step “Test01” created previously.

Create the Scheduled Task “Test01” in Task Scheduler and configure as needed.

 After the scheduled task executes, the Task Activity log will display the execution Completed.

Greatly appreciated Terry!  This tidbit got me past the last hurdle.
