Resilio Connect v2.4.2 and newer offers an option to add agents to a currently running transfer job:
- New destination agents can be added to Distribution job;
- New source agents can be added to Consolidation job.
This option helps to save time: now there's no need to wait till job's complete or abort it so as to transfer files to some more agents which are not in the job yet.
Adding Agents to a Transfer Job
To do so, go to the active Job run -> Agents and click on “Add agents”:
Select agents from the list, a few or one. Point the path for share for these agents.
Note, that this way new agents are added only for the current active job run. It means that when job run is complete, these new agents don’t remain in the job. To add new agents to the job permanently, edit the job itself on "Configure Jobs" tab.
New agents can also be added using an API call.
Similarly, there's an option to stop the job run on a selected agent or a few agents with “Stop on agent” button. Select the desired agent and click the button to stop the job run for it. Multi select is not supported. If a run is stopped for the only destination or the only source in the job, the whole job run is aborted.
Only current job transfer is stopped for the selected agents, they are removed from UI from job run details. To permanently remove the agent from the job, edit the job itself on "Configure Jobs" tab.
