The XNAT Event Service, introduced in XNAT 1.8, allows site administrators and project owners to schedule automated actions in response to defined data events within XNAT. Learn more about its core functionality here: Using the XNAT Event Service
Enabling the Event Service is a very simple task, but it has the potential to unleash a lot of power to your users and should be monitored very carefully. Be sure to test this functionality thoroughly on production-like data before deploying onto a production system.
How to Enable the Event Service
As a user with administrator privileges, browse to the Administrator -> Event Service page.
Set the status of Event Service to Enabled.
As you can see in the brief video demonstration, it is all too easy to overwhelm an XNAT server with container execution requests. We strongly recommend enabling and configuring Docker Swarm mode in your container host to enable queuing of requests.
