Least Privileged User: PM, AIE Communication Manager

The Job Manager runs scheduled report jobs and other background functions, such as automated list imports and heartbeat monitoring. You can schedule report packages to run and be delivered automatically using the Scheduled Report Job Manager. The Job Manager then creates, exports, notifies, and delivers the reports.


The AIE Communication Manager is a message broker between the log Mediators and the AIE service. This service receives log messages and writes them into the AIE archive format for use by the AIE service.

Shared Resource

The AIE and AIE Communication Manager services share directories for configuration, state, and data files. These directories can be configured in the AI Engine Configuration Manager tool. This guide refers to the default settings.

The AIE Communication Manager writes data files read by the AIE. By default, this directory is part of the path above. However, you can configure the AIE system to use a separate directory. If you change the directory, both the AIE and the AIE Communication Manager services will need access to this directory.
