Configuring notifications and other scheduling features


1. Overview

The Dundas BI Scheduler Service needs to be running and various configuration settings must be applied for notifications and other scheduling-related features in Dundas BI to work.

2. Dundas BI Scheduler Service

For any scheduled task in Dundas BI to work (e.g., notifications, scheduled data cube storage), the Dundas BI Scheduler Service needs to be running and the Windows user account that the service runs as needs access to the Dundas BI application database.

The Dundas BI Scheduler Service is typically installed along with the application. To verify that the service is running, open the Control Panel's Administrative Tools on your server and double-click Services.
