Select Inventory Explorer
Click Add Object
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
Once you have added all the MultiProcess object you desire, they should be displayed within the Inventory Explorer under Object Types > MultiProcesses
