HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Setting the HCL Workload Automation options

About this task

You can set two types of properties to configure your HCL Workload Automation run time environment, properties that are set on the master domain manager and affect processing on all workstations in the HCL Workload Automation network, and properties that are set locally on a workstation and affect processing on that workstation only. The former are managed using the HCL Workload Automation command line program named optman, and the latter you define locally on the workstation by customizing the configuration files useropts, localopts, and jobmanrc.

Global options are used to:
  • Define if the security files of all the workstations of the network can be created and managed only from the master domain manager or if the root user or administrator of each workstation can create and manage their own.
  • Select whether to enable or disable database auditing.
  • Control which objects in the plan the user is permitted to list when running a query.
  • Select whether to enable plan auditing.
  • Select whether to enable strong encryption.
  • Select whether to enable or disable the fault tolerant switch manager.
  • Select whether to enable or disable the time zone option.
  • Enter the number of days for which you want to save job statistics.
  • Set the minimum and maximum lengths of the preproduction plan in days.
  • Determine if uncompleted job streams are carried forward from the old to the new production control file.
  • Remove or clean up job stream instances from the plan that ended in error.
  • Define the start time of the HCL Workload Automation processing day.
Local options are used to:
  • Specify the name of the local workstation
  • Prevent the launching of jobs run by root in UNIX
  • Prevent unknown clients from connecting to the system
  • Specify a number of performance options
  • Specify a number of logging preferences
  • Set SSL security options.
