HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Scheduling jobs directly

In the Scheduling panel, before you can proceed to enter the job name and the scheduling details, you are asked to specify the identity of the scheduling system and the scheduler type, which must be SMSE. You can then specify the name of the job definition, and the job type, which can be any of the job types supported by HCL Workload Automation. The job is qualified by Solution Manager as an external job.

Select the Status message check box to enable monitoring tasks for the job.

In the Start Conditions section select when and how frequently the job will run and optionally make selections in the Repeat every and Time Period groups. Your selections are then mapped to matching run cycles, valid from and valid to dates, working days or non- working days, and time dependencies on HCL Workload Automation.
Note: The Extended Window start condition is not supported. All other start conditions are supported.

Use the tabs available on the uppermost part of the panel to manage jobs; for example, to copy, reschedule, hold, release, kill, or cancel a job, and to subscribe or unsubscribe for status/change notification.

If a scheduled job has not been started, you can change its start conditions or parameters and click Schedule/Change Externally again. Alternatively, you can change the start conditions and select Reschedule to reset the job to a new start time. In either case, HCL Workload Automation deletes the current job instance (that has not been started) and creates another one with the new characteristics.

On the other hand, you can click Cancel on a non-completed job that was already started. In this case, HCL Workload Automation deletes the running instance as expected.

As soon as the job is scheduled with success, the external job ID and the status are updated and you can view the job instance on the Dynamic Workload Console.
