4.9 Question- Scheduled Reports

(34 posts) (3 voices)
  1. nsepetys, Member

    Hello myDBR Representative,

    I just saw the new release of v.4.9. As always, we're excited over here about the new features. In particular, we're looking at the scheduler which might fit into our workflow well. Currently we have a cron managed through the standard job scheduler method (using linux). Offhand, how easy would it be to drop our existing crons into the scheduler.php file and pick up where we left off using myDBR's scheduler? I understand the initial call to scheduler.php may need to run every minute with the number of oddly scheduled myDBR crons we have running during the day, but outside of that what would it take to import the commands we have going? We have dozens of jobs running daily so I just want to make sure that this transition is practical.

    Thanks,
    Noah

    Noah,
    what the new scheduled tasks feature does, it provides a method defining the scheduled report runs within myDBR UI. So you no longer need to edit cron jobs to add a scheduled report run, you can do it directly from the UI.

    You might not want to run the scheduler every minute, just see what the suitable interval for your cron jobs now have (every 10 minutes, every half an hour or every hour). Try to keep the cron interval bigger than your slowest report as myDBR logs the report to be run after it has successfully executed it.

    myDBR UI uses the cron syntax so you can transfer the current pretty much tasks as is.

    Hi,
    the https://report.kmv.local/index.php?m=11 URL is not a valid URL to a report (it's a URL to myDBR folder). Could you check the URL?

    If your certificate does not match the hostname, fix the certificate or use the the "--no-check-certificate" flag in wget.

    in settings - Authentication / security = Active directory.
    and i can not login into mydbr with dba user.

    Your defalt authentication is set to Active Directory. If you want to override it and use myDBR authentication instead, add '&local=1' to the login URL.

    Try putting the schedule in myDBR bit before the actual cron (for example 59,29). The scheduler will look for the jobs that are to be run. You can also check from the scheduler entry when was the last time the report was run.

    You can also run the wget command from the command line (once the report is due) and see if threre are any errors.

    OK,
    we've added another option to bypass the certificate in the scheduler. You should fix your certificate though. The web server rejects your calls as you have incorrect certificate installed.

    Run the updater and add following line to user/defaults.php:

    $mydbr_defaults['embed_url']['CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST'] = false;

    Hi,
    make sure you have both options (CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER and CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST) set in user/defaults.php. Make also sure that the reports in scheduler are due to be run.

    The messages you see from the command line are normal messages what wget shows. The warnings shown are for your certificate, but as you are using the --no-check-certificate flag, these are just warnings.

    We've tested the scheduler with invalid certificate and with the options set, the report should run.

    We've added a debug option to the scheduler.php. if you want debug info from the scheduler run the scheduler with scheduler.php?debug=1 and the debug output is printed from the script.

    You can run the script from the command line:

    $ wget --no-check-certificate -t 1 https://report.kmv.local/scheduler.php -O scheduler_debug.txt

    and lastRun = Null in sql database

    What does this mean?

    Another note. Your dates seem to come out of the database is form "Jun 19 2017 01:24:40:870PM". Are you using FreeTDS in your server to access the database and have you configured the date format in FreeTDS's locales.conf?

    [default] date format = %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S
    You better open a support ticket in myDBR support email instead of continuing the discussion in the forums.
