Activate the CI Lifecycle Management scheduled job

When starting to use the CI Lifecycle Management module, ensure to activate the CI Lifecycle Management - Restore Internal State Management Tables scheduled job which is disabled by default. This scheduled job continuously checks and maintains the data integrity of all internal CI Lifecycle Management tables.

About this task

When CI Lifecycle Management operations do not complete properly, for example due to a failure of the requestor or a requestor whose lease has expired, the integrity of tables related to CI Lifecycle Management might be compromised. The CI Lifecycle Management - Restore Internal State Management Tables scheduled job scans tables related to CI Lifecycle Management, and does the following:
  • De-activates or removes all internal lifecycle management records with invalid requestors, and closes any corresponding Renew Lease Tasks if present.
  • Detects records associated with a valid requestor whose lease has expired, and automatically creates a Renew Lease Task to notify the user and to provide details for extending the lease. If the requestor takes no action and the lease remains expired for a specified grace period (default 15 days), automatically de-activates the corresponding CI action record, and closes any corresponding Renew Lease Task if present.
