Task Schedule Settings 


To specify the task name and schedule settings for the Dockit import task, perform the steps given below.

1.

The Task Schedule Settings step appears as shown below:

2.

Enter a unique task name in Task Name textbox.

3.

Select a Task Option from one of the following options given below:

  • Run later - to run the task later as and when desired

  • Run now - to run the task immediately after clicking Finish button

  • Schedule - To create a Windows scheduled task. Dockit will create a schedule task in the Windows Scheduled Tasks with the given settings.

4. 

Select one of the following options to connect to the target SharePoint site:

a.     This user <user name> - This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now or Schedule task option. Dockit will use stored profile context to connect destination SharePoint.

b.    Prompt me for user context at task run time (Windows and Forms authentication only) – This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now task option. Select this option if the target SharePoint site is configured to use Windows and/or Forms Authentication only. Dockit will prompt for the user context to use to connect to SharePoint site when executing Dockit import task.

c.     Use 'Run As' user context given below – This option will be available if you choose Schedule task option. Dockit will use the user account specified in the scheduled Run As user context to connect to SharePoint. In case, if you decide to use different user context to connect to SharePoint when running the scheduled task, you can do so by storing the SharePoint user context for future use.

Dockit will store the user credential to connect to SharePoint in the Microsoft Windows Stored User Names and Passwords / Credential Manager applet for security reasons. The stored user profile is tied to the user context (currently logged on user account) in which the profile is created. Hence, you will not be allowed to change the scheduled Run As user context for the export task.

d.    Use federated authentication (Web SSO) for the SharePoint site – This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now or Schedule task option. Select this option if the target SharePoint site uses federated identity (Web SSO or Active Directory users configured via ADFS). Dockit will prompt for the user context to use to connect to SharePoint when executing Dockit import task. To connect to Office 365's SharePoint Online environment, you can use Web Single Sign-on option (Web SSO) for both Cloud Identity (Office 365 Online User Credential e.g., johndoe@vyapin.onmicrosoft.com) and Federated Identity (configured via ADFS e.g., johndoe@vyapin.com).

5.

For Federated authentication (Web Single Sign-on) credential based import task, the Web Single Sign-on framework expects the username and password to be given by user interactively in a browser based login dialog, including scheduled tasks. Upon clicking Finish button, you will be prompted for the credentials (username and password).

 

Provide username and password in the respective textboxes and click Sign in button to proceed.

 

6.

Click Finish button in the Dockit Task Wizard to create the task.
