Setting up the Job Monitor Dashboard with snapshots

The use of snapshots

The first time you log onto Object Analyzer on a new account, zero entries will show on the dashboard. Adding entries is done elsewhere on each snapshot.

Have a snapshot ready for the following steps. You can learn how to create one in our detailed get started with snapshots tutorial.

Mananging entries on your snapshot

Configuring new entries on the Dashboard

1) Select the ”SNAPSHOTS” tab and choose your snapshot.

2) Press and open the tab “Job Monitor – Job Queue Entries” at the bottom of your snapshot. 

3) In the tab “Job Queue Entries” you are able to view the type of object, object ID and the associated name and description. Check if all your entries appeared from connecting to the database.

The new entries that you decided to track will all appear in the overview. In case of entries not showing up, be sure to check whether you set up your snapshot cloud configuration correctly.

Alternative method of adding email listeners

Add multiple email listeners to entries

For Job monitoring there is an alternative method of adding and managing email listeners. This is recommended, if you want to inform multiple users at once, and people without an Object Analyzer account such as clients. Whenever an entry is modified, crashes, or causes an error, it will inform all emails added to that specific entry (job name).

Please note that your organization should still uphold the GDPR policies by having the person’s consent, when adding them to the list.

Set up notifications for your alternative email accounts

With this method you can also add your other emails (e.g. private email), allowing you to get notifications “on the go” for entry modifications that might need your immediate attention.

You can find this option in the “Job Monitor Management” tab on your snapshot

How to manually add other listeners

To manually add people to receive an email, simply do the following:

1) Enter the contact’s name and email

2) Choose a “Job Name” from the dropdown menu

3) Press “Add listener”, and they should now appear on your list of email listeners

The new contact should then receive an email next time the entry is modified.
