System Runtime Context

The System Runtime Context keeps the context that the system uses to resolve and run queue processors and job schedulers. You can use this page to view and manage the list of applications and list of roles, and to view the rulesets that are resolved by the system.

For information about adding an application to the System Runtime Context, see Automating the runtime context management of background processes.

If you have disabled automatic updates by selecting the Disable automatic updates button and you want to override the System Runtime Context, in the Applications section, click +Add application, and enter the name and version of the application. Adding an application by using the +Add application button only works in a local environment and is not propagated to other environments.

Only select the Disable automatic updates button if you encounter issues when managing the System Runtime Context. This button prevents the System Runtime Context from updating automatically, and requires you to manage the System Runtime Context manually.

To delete an application from the System Runtime Context, click the Delete icon next to an application.

To reorder applications, click and drag an application to its new position in the list of applications.

To set the authorization context when running a job scheduler activity and the context of the activity is designated as Run in System Runtime Context, click +Add role and enter the access role. For more information, see Creating a job scheduler rule.
