Evaluating Query Based Collections

Evaluating a Query Based Collection executes the query in each of the Sets belonging to the Collection. These evaluations are dynamic, adding and removing objects from the Collection as determined by the Sets. For example, if you have a Query-Based Collection with a Set that returns all people hired within the last week, the people in the Collection will vary from week to week.

Prerequisites: For EmpowerID to compile sets, the Set Compiler Job must be enabled on at least one EmpowerID Server hosting the Worker Role service.

  • To enable the Set Compiler Job
    1. Log in to the EmpowerID Management Console as an administrative user.
    2. Navigate to the EmpowerID Server and Roles node in Configuration Manager.
    3. From the EmpowerID Server and Roles node, locate the Set Compiler Job in the Configuration Manager and tick the Job checkbox on one of the EmpowerID servers hosting the Worker Role service.
