About data collection jobs

A data collection job is used to collect data from the assets for specific standards.

The information that you specify during the data collection process is saved in the data collection job. Hence you do not need to specify the collection criteria every time you perform the collection process. Data collection jobs can be scheduled to run at predefined intervals. The jobs can also be modified and deleted.

You can create or edit a data collection job through the Create or Edit Data Collection Job wizard.

You can create a collection job from the Standards view, Assets view, and the Job Management view. You can modify, delete, or track the status of a data collection job only from the Job Management view.
