    This issue is seen if the Task Scheduler is disabled in the Root/web.xml file.

    Perform the below steps to enable it:

    • Navigate to <Smart Reporting Install Dir>/appserver/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF
    • Take a backup of the existing web.xml file from web.xml file.
    • Open file Web.xml and Look for 'DisableTaskScheduler' Parameter
    • You will find XML entry similar as below
    <init-param>  <param-name>DisableTaskScheduler</param-name>  <param-value>TRUE</param-value>  </init-param>
    • Change param-value from TRUE to FALSE and save it.
    • Restart the Smart Reporting Tomcat service.
    The Broadcasting should work successfully post the above changes. 

    Note: If the 'DisableTaskScheduler' is missing in the web.xml file, then it can be added on the MIStartup Servlet block.
