Windows Task Scheduler (equivalent will work with other OS like Linux): If you are not familiar with Task Scheduler, first visit a website that explains how to use it. Could not get PowerShell to run from TS, so used two tasks that hit the preview then export URIs separately, thirty minutes apart. The query strings below (provided by FireScope thanks) invoke staging (preview) and federation (export)-- Preview command http://stratis.yourdomain/cw_cmdb_mgmt.php?ajax=1&action=outboundgeneratepreview&page=3&token=<yourtoken> Export command http://stratis.yourdomain/cw_cmdb_mgmt.php?ajax=1&action=outboundexportnow&page=3&token=<yourtoken> Create a new administrator account in Stratis. Create a token for same account that does not expire. Log into a Windows machine that will be online at the time of the task executions. Launch Task Scheduler. Under Actions, click on Create Task. - General Tab This is the preview task, so name it appropriately. Select 'Run whether user is logged in or not.' -Triggers Tab Click on the New button then set up the time and frequency to run the task. -Actions Tab Action: Start a program Program/script: Browse to the desired web browser. I used Google Chrome. Add arguments: http://stratis.yourdomain/Preview query string
-Conditions Tab I left at default settings, but can be customized to meet any need. -Settings Tab I changed 'Stop the task if it runs longer than:' to 1 hour. Click on the OK button. You might be prompted to enter username and password. Create a second task then repeat for the export command. Can export the tasks to XML as backup and to import to a different Windows system.
