BMC Network Automation imports the device inventory by using either File Access or JDBC Database Access method. See Adding a file access device import task and Adding a JDBC database access device import task. Each factory-installed import adapter supports a fixed method. You can also create your own JDBC Database Access methods, as described in Creating a user-defined database query format.
When a task is scheduled for the future, the entries in the Recurring and Scheduled Date/Time columns are shown in boldface.
