The OASIS batch service runs batch jobs within OASIS automatically. Once set up, the service will periodically log in on a user's behalf and run all active batch jobs. This is available for Windows environments only at this time. The OASIS batch service should be set up on a server or other computer that is always on to ensure that updates are always happening in the background.
For systems with Windows User Account Controls enabled (Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Server 2008, Server 2012, etc), you may need to run OASIS as an administrator first (shift + right click the OASIS icon and select Run as Administrator).
To start, go to the Configuration section and then click on Software. Click on the Tools menu, then select Batch Jobs.
After the window comes up, check to make sure that the batch jobs needed are shown.
Next, click File menu and select the 'Configure Windows Service' option.
Enter valid connection information under the 'Database Connection' area as well as an administrator's log in credentials under the 'OASIS Login' area. After this information has been set, press the update button at the bottom of the screen.
The best practice is to create a user account called "batch" that has full admin rights and a strong password. This will not count against OASIS licensing as long as it is only used for this batch service only. If someone does actually log into OASIS with it, at that time it will count against your licenses.
After the service installs, a confirmation window will pop up.
The OASIS batch jobs will automatically be run from this point once the service is started.
