The Current activity tab shows the activity in your Sitecore Content Hub instance. You access it from the Stats page.
Information is grouped into two sections:
- Queue: shows the number of messages that are on each of the processing queues.
- Jobs: shows the results of the processing jobs.
For each type of job, Content Hub sends one or more messages as a form of communication between two elements. Messages contain the data needed by the workers assigned to each queue to fulfill the job assignment.
When a new message is created, it becomes visible in the IN stage of the queue. While the message is being processed, it is visible in the WIP (Work In Progress) stage. When processing has been successfully completed, the message is visible in the COMPLETE stage. If a message cannot be processed, it is visible in the DEAD stage. You can find additional information regarding the failure in the server logs.
Using Content Hub, you can set up message prioritization where priority values are set on job types and media types. For example, processing image files can have a higher priority than video files, so they are processed first.
Description of queues
The following table lists all the queues in Content Hub:
|actions||Applies to actions invoked either through triggers or manually, through the API.||Yes|
|assetlifecyle||Optimizes storage for files located in the Azure Blob storage of an asset, whether it is archived or not.||No|
|audit||Logs and saves activities in an Elasticsearch audit log index.||No|
|businesslogic||Runs configurable logic when certain system events occur, and is mainly used with Sitecore Marketing Resource Management (MRM).||No|
|checkout||Used to move the selected assets to OneDrive.||No|
|chili_validation||Validates the uploaded Chili templates and can be used for Chili integration.||No|
|cleanup||Used for cleaning up entities that are no longer required. If one entity is linked to files (such as a file entity), those files are also deleted.||No|
|compositeassets||Filters Save entity messages from a configured list of definitions and starts a worker to handle them. It looks for newly uploaded archive files that match a configured file pattern and creates processing jobs for them. Finally, it extracts specific files from the archive and adds them to the file entity that represents the archive.||No|
|connectorpublishing||Publishes data from connectors.||No|
|discussionnotification||Sends notifications to users when they are mentioned in discussions or comments.||No|
|download_reporting_logs||Creates a download package when the user requests the download of reporting logs.||No|
|download_script_telemetry||Creates a download package when the user requests the download of script telemetry logs.||No|
|drmcomplexity||Forces assets to require explicit approval by updating the ExplicitApproval Required flag and associated digital rights management (DRM) properties.||No|
|duplicatefile||Checks for duplicate files, creates FileDuplicate entities for each duplicate type, and flags duplicate assets as ||No|
|entitypublishing||Publishes entities to Edge.||No|
|entitypublishing_post_processing||Processes message notifications received from Edge after publication.||No|
|exportdata||Processes data exports. It is used for exporting both to Excel and translations.||No|
|fetch||Lets users upload assets from either a UNC path or a public URL. The newly uploaded assets are then added as file entities to an existing asset entity. However, it must wait for a copy operation to finish before starting the next job.||Yes|
|flow||Forwards incoming messages to the flow queues that match the message channel. Only one instance of this worker is permitted.||No|
|graph||Provides a gateway for the Graph server, which is a service with in-memory graph representation of all data in the Content Hub instance. The Graph server provides a bridge between normalized data in the Redis data storage and de-normalized data in the Elasticsearch data storage.||No|
|high_priority_fetch||Similar to the default fetch queue, except that it processes high-priority jobs.||Yes|
|high_priority_import_data||Similar to the default importdata queue, except that it processes high-priority jobs.||No|
|importdata||Processes data imports. It is used to import Excel files, mass edits, and translations.||No|
|massedit||Lets users make multiple edits for all selected entities. It can be configured to exclude relations and properties from the assets.||No|
|ordering||Prepares download orders by converting and archiving files, as requested by users.||No|
|package||Deals with requests for exporting and importing packages.||No|
|processing||Deals with processing jobs based on a priority queue.||Yes|
|publiccollection||Users who have the manager role for a collection, as well as the PublishCollection privilege, can make that collection public, making all its assets available through an external website. Access to this external website can be configured to require authentication.||No|
|publiclink||Updates the state of the public link entities in an Azure table.||Yes|
|publisher||Acts as the entry point for all messages. Every message goes through the publisher queue before being propagated.||No|
|renditions||Based on a specific configuration, it scans a queue of saved entities, detects property changes, and sets up a processing job.||No|
|roles||Updates the user group policies when creating, updating, or deleting a role template.||No|
|scriptcompilation||Builds requested scripts in C#.||Yes|
|sendemail||Sends email messages.||Yes|
|sitecore_machine_learning||Sends information about assets to the Sitecore AI, which processes similarity metrics for specific assets.||No|
|system||Deals with large, time-consuming system jobs that are executed after an upgrade. These jobs are excluded from the upgrade process itself, but begin when the system is live. Examples are translation updates, theme refresh, or large entity updates.||No|
|tasknotification||Sends email notifications to users during the following situations:||No|
|tasks||Copies an M.Project task and assigns it to specifics users.||No|
|theme||Generates themes based on data in a theme entity.||No|
|themenotification||Notifies Media Delivery when it has to refresh the cached theme.||No|
|totalfilesize||Sets the properties ||No|
|triggers||Whenever there are changes in the system, it checks if the trigger conditions are met and, if so, it activates the trigger.||Yes|
|upload||Adds a new Add links button to the Create page, letting users create assets based on files from an external source.||Yes|
The Jobs section lists the jobs available in the system along with the current state of the job. If a job fails, an entity could have no renditions for example. You can investigate failed jobs on the My Jobs page.
Each user can access the jobs they created from their personal Background processes page.
