The ActionQ (pronounced Action Queue) receives time consuming jobs such as an upload or download from wizards, allows you to edit and monitor the jobs, and sends the job information to the SCT for scheduled execution. You can only access the ActionQ from the View Menu in SCT.

The ActionQ communicates with network engines over HTTP or HTTPS depending upon the Metasys system release. At Release 8.1 and later, the ActionQ communicates with engines over HTTPS. At Release 8.0 and earlier, the ActionQ communicates with engines over HTTP. The HTTPS column in the Completed Actions and Actions in Progress window of the ActionQ indicates the connection status for each engine.

Improved ActionQ infrastructure at Release 12.0 provides you with more detailed statuses, progress updates, and additional information in the log file entries for troubleshooting assistance. The updated ActionQ Log file can be found through the C:\ProgramData\JohnsonControls\MetasysIII\Diagnostics\ActionQueue path.
Note: In addition to the ActionQ Log, you can also view the Archive Log summary found under the Tools < Diagnostics menu for a log of all actions processed as you update an archive or a site.
