Tasks provide a way to execute Pipelines in a reusable manner. You can view Task information (such as run policy, path, and permissions) from an admin perspective. You can also access information about Pipeline runtimes along with their statistics useful for analysis.
The display of information depends on the following types of Tasks:
Example Task Details Pages
Viewing Information about a Task
To view Details of a Task:
- Navigate to the target Project where the Task resides.
- Hover over the Task name and click , then select to display the menuDetails.
The Task Details page appears.
- See the Details Reference for a description of information displayed on the Details page.
Alternatively, you can click Activity Log to see when the Task is created or modified.
Since the Pipelines executed by Tasks are run in an unattended mode, you can receive notifications of Task activity by specifying a comma-separated list of email addresses in the Create Task dialog.
If you are on the Tasks page under a project, the list displays the type of Task in the Run Policy column. On the project-level page, this column is not available.
Duplicate Task Executions
If a Task fails to start with the same reason for multiple times in a row, then subsequent skips are not displayed on the Task details page.
The Details page provides information about your Tasks.
The Task header is composed of the name of the Task and its status, which includes the following Task status types:
- Enabled: Indicates that the Task is set to Enabled in Manager and therefore executable.
- Disabled: Indicates that the Task is set to Disabled in Manager and cannot be executed in its current status.
- Project: The name of the Project where the Task resides.

- Groundplex: A Triggered Task that runs on a Groundplex.
