HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Monitoring job status and details

You can use the results displayed in the dashboard to drill down to more detailed information about the results and perform some recovery actions. You can also send the details of a job or workstation to an email recipient. For jobs, the email includes a link to download the job log if available.

Before you begin

In general, the dashboard displays the jobs that match the filter criteria and the engines defined in the dashboard query, categorized by their current status. From the dashboard you can filter further by drilling down on jobs in a particular status, on particular workstations, or jobs defined as critical in the network. For each job, you can view details such as the job name, the job number, the internal status, the associated job stream name, the risk level for critical jobs, the workstation name of the workstation where the job runs, and the workstation name of the workstation where the job stream runs, to name a few. You can also view the job log for each job and trigger a number of actions on the job depending on its status and whether it is a job in a distributed or z/OS environment.
