Tasks are a flexible job type that can be used to clean up old logs or run any REST call. They are equivalent to "scheduler jobs" in pre-3.1 releases of Fusion.

Task subtypes

The "task" job type has the following subtypes:

Log Cleanup

Delete old log messages from system logs collection.


Run an arbitrary REST/HTTP/Solr command.

Task configuration

Tasks can be created and modified using the Fusion UI or the Tasks API. They can be scheduled using the Fusion UI or the Jobs API.
