How to set up a scheduled task using STORM

Applications such as Magento require scheduled tasks to be run at regular intervals to manage indexing and send emails. STORM allows you to easily add and manage your scheduled tasks.

First you need to log into STORM.

Once logged into STORM, you will be taken to the STORM dashboard.

You will need to have set up your website in STORM before you can create a scheduled task. Please see our Setting up a website guide with details on how to do this.

From the STORM dashboard click on Websites.

On this page you will see a list of Websites that you currently have set up on your Nimbus server.

Click the cog icon next to your website to manage the settings for this specific site.

Click on Scheduled Tasks.

Here you can see a list of scheduled tasks currently set up on the server.

If you have installed Magento using STORM, the scheduled tasks for this will automatically be added to the Scheduled Tasks list for you.

To create a new scheduled task simply click the Add Task button.

From the drop down menu, select how often you would like the scheduled task to run.

If you want to use cron style scheduling for your tasks select Custom from the drop down menu.

Paste your command into the command field.

Lastly click the Create Task button to activate your scheduled task. You scheduled task will now run as per the schedule you chose from now on.
