Table of contents

Configuration

The configuration of a scheduled export is based on export lists.

To create an export list:

  • open the list view of the model to export
  • select at least one record, and open "Action → Export"
  • select the fields to export and save using "Save fields list".

To configure a scheduled export:

  • open "Settings → Technical → Automation → Scheduled Exports"
  • create a scheduled export by filling the form

A Scheduled Action named "Send Scheduled Exports" checks every hour if Scheduled Exports have to be executed.

Usage

When the configuration of a Scheduled Export is done, their execution is automatic.

Users will receive an email containing a link to download the exported file at the specified frequency. The attachments stay in the database for 7 days by default (it can be changed with the system parameter attachment.ttl.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • We could configure a custom TTL (time-to-live) for each scheduled export
