Seeing asynchronous tasks by other users

Post by onthax » Jan 17, 2019 1:23 am

Running into an issue with the way async tasks work.

When i disable a job with the RESTapi

It creates a task which i can then check to determine if it was successful.
when i check the task as the same user but a different login session the task is not displayed.

how can i view the async tasks from other others or the same user later?

I am not sure this is possible, it wasn't last time i checked (has been a couple of versions but my code remains the same).

Tasks appear to be bound to a session as you mention, I have raised this in the past on this forum with my growing list of things I would like to see in the api.

Yeh pretty poor usability, passing the session header around to keep it consistent but it sets a cookie i can't easily clear in vrealize orchestrator which overrides the header.

might log a support call, see if i can get movement or a solution on it.

Yep!

Also feel free to revive this thread of mine and add your own list/see what other things i find would be helpful. Not that anyone appears to be looking at it ..... but two voices are better than one!

Today tasks can be tracked only within current login session, but thank you for the feedback - your vote has been counted.
