Creating HCL Workload Automation jobs managed by HCL Workload Automation

This section explains how to create HCL Workload Automation jobs to be managed by HCL Workload Automation.

To create a HCL Workload Automation job and have resources allocated dynamically, perform the following steps:
  1. Create a JSDL job definition in HCL Workload Automation using the Job Brokering Definition Console. This job contains the instructions or program to be run.
  2. Create a job to be submitted in HCL Workload Automation. This job contains the reference to the job in HCL Workload Automation defined in step 1. Define the HCL Workload Automation job as follows:
    1. In the Dynamic Workload Console, from the navigation bar, click Administration > Workload Design > Manage Workload Definitions.
    2. Select New > Job Definition > Cloud > Workload Broker.
    3. In the General tab, in the Workstation field specify the workload broker workstation.
    4. In the Task tab, in the Workload Broker job name field specify the name of the JSDL job definition you created in step 1.
When you submit the HCL Workload Automation job, this job causes the referenced job to be submitted on HCL Workload Automation. This method is known as submission by reference because you only need to reference the job you want to submit, without having to write or import the whole job in HCL Workload Automation.
