Triggering issue of Task scheduler on custom event RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    We have installed Tableau 9.0 in our windows 2008 R2 server and looking for task scheduler to send email if any error is occurred for the application in it. Hence we set up SMTP in it. First we set up task scheduler and generate the error in tableau application and run the task manually and we receive email. But when we go for automation by  custom event. Please find the steps below what I have follow:

    1. Click the Start button, and select Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler.

                    2. Click Create Task in the Actions pane on the right.

                    3. In the Create Task dialog box, in the Name text box, type a name for the task, and provide a description if desired.

                    4. In the Security options section, select Run whether user is logged in or not.

                    5. Click the Triggers tab, and click the New button.

                    6. From the Begin the task drop-down menu, select On an event.

                    7. In Settings section, select Custom, and click New Event Filter button.

                    8. For Event Level, select the Error check box.

                    9. Select By Source, and from the Event sources drop-down menu, select the Tableau Server check box.

                    10. Click OK to close the New Even Filter dialog box, and click OK again to close the New Trigger dialog box. The event trigger is now configured.

                    11. In the Create Task dialog box, click the Actions tab, and select the New button.

                    12. In New Action dialog box, from the Action drop-down menu, select Send an e-mail.

                    13. Under the Settings section, complete the form as necessary, including the SMTP server.

                    Note: It is necessary to enter valid email addresses in the From and To text boxes.

                    14. Click OK to close the New Action dialog box.

                    15. Click OK to close the Create Task dialog box and complete the email alert configuration.
