How to know who started a task in QMC?

Hello dear experts,

Problem statement - How to know who started a task in QMC?

Background - We have an unmanageable scenario where we are not able to find out who triggered which task in QMC, because of which untimely triggers are happening. Please suggest.

Thanks and regards,

Ambareesh Jonnavittula

Down to earth approach:

For the last execution:

  • Tasks tab in the Status sheet, select the task you want to inspect in the task tree, and open the Task Details pane. field "Last execution" will specify the date+time of last execution, and field "Started/Scheduled" will specify the trigger that launched the last task execution.

For historical executions:

  • Select the task you want to inspect, open the Task History tab, select the run from the list and click the link. The Task Log will be shown. On the first line, scroll to the right until you encounter tag 'Triggered by'.The following text will detail the trigger type, and the Id will contain the GUID of the trigger (if relevant)

Trigger definitions can be found in the Trigger.xml file in the QVPR. You can use Rob's QvprAnalysis tool to figure out more details of the instance that did trigger execution of this task.
