Activating a module deploys it to the grid and triggers the schedules established for the processes contained in that module. Peers begin executing workflows according to the schedules defined in the activated modules.
When Grid Manager activates modules, it distributes the corresponding ROAR files to the peers and triggers the schedules.
During the activation process, you specify the version and revision of the module to be activated. Only one version and revision of a module can be active at a time.
The following video (3:03) demonstrates how to activate a module on a grid using Grid Manager.
To activate modules
- In the Grid Manager application, select the Manage tab, and then select the Modules tab.
The table on the left of the page displays all the modules in the repository.
- (Optional) Click the plus sign to expand the listing for a module to show previous versions and revisions of the module.
Select the modules that you want to activate on the grid.
- You can select more than one module, but you can select only one version and revision of any module.
- If you select a previous version or revision of a module and then close the parent node on the tree, the module selection is cleared. You must leave the tree expanded if you want to select any version or revision of the module except the most recent.
- Click Activate.
The modules that you selected are activated on the grid. The Modules tab displays the modules that are active on the grid and their version numbers in the Activated on Grid table on the right.
