Backup task in EEM error out with Applet not configured with 'event none'

I try to configure the Embedded Event Manager (EEM) in my ASA5508 to perform an automatic task for me. The task is to automatically output the "show running-config" into a new file. I want to use this as auto config backup for my device.

The problem is the task does not run on its own. And when I run it manually, it gives me the error message of Applet not configured with 'event none'.

This is the configuration of the task in EEM.

Could someone please tell me what the problem is?

 

Many thanks.

@balaji.bandi, could you give em an example of backup the running config onto an FTP storage location?

event manager applet syslog_redirect
 event timer cron cron-entry "0 * * * *" maxrun 86400
 action 0.00 cli command "term len 0"
 action 0.01 set i "0"
 action 0.02 while $i lt 24
 action 0.03 cli command "show run  | redirect ftp://balajibandi.com/$i:00_hours.cfg"
 action 0.04 increment i 1
 action 0.05 wait 3600
 action 0.06 end

try and let me know.

I figured out how to integrate the username and password into the FTP.

This is my EEM config and it's running fine.

event manager applet ConfigUpload
 description This task will backup the running configuration
 event timer watchdog time 180
 action 1 cli command "copy /noconfirm running-config ftp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@MYFTP.COM/array1/ASA5508/ASA/"
 output none

How can I append a date and time onto file name?

 You can add _$_event_pub_sec to get a timestamp added to the filename.

Adding  the _$_event_pub_sec does not seem to work.2018-09-14 10_51_19.jpg

 

 

The output file show the exact same name as I input.

Here is the action i have.

 

copy /noconfirm running-config ftp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@SERVER/array1/ASA5508/ASA/running_$_event_pub_sec
