Introduction:

Tasks can be associated with global collections. By associating a task with a global collection, the task runs on all members of the collection that support the task type at execution time. Associating a task with a global collection can occur during initial task creation or after the task already exists.

Question:

How do we associate a new task with a Global Collection?

Environment:
Spectrum 10.x
Answer:

You can associate a task with a global collection when you create the task or you can associate an existing task to a new global collection as well.

- Select the Global Collections node in the Explorer tab.

A list of defined global collections appears in the List tab of the Contents panel. On the List tab, select the global collection with which to associate a task.

- The global collection is highlighted and the Create NCM task icon is enabled.

- Click the Create NCM task icon and select the task that you want to create and associate with this global collection.

The 'Select device(s)' dialog for the task appears.

- Continue with the creation of the task.When you have finished:

    The new task appears in the NCM Tasks sub view on the Information tab for the global collection.
    The new task appears in the Tasks folder in the Explorer tab. When viewing the Information tab for the task, the global collection with which the task is associated appears in the Global Collections sub view.

When the task is executed, it runs on all members of the global collection that support the task type at the time of execution.
