At the Add Object dialog, complete the following:

  • Enter the Display Name (crond).
  • Select EP Ops Adapter from the Adapter Type dropdown.
  • Select EP Ops Adapter < instance id> from the Adapter Instance dropdown.
  • Select MultiProcess from the Object Type dropdown.
  • Update the process.query field to show State.Name.eq=crond.
