Job Scheduler

Hello list,

Does anyone know if you can use the Job Scheduler in XE to schedule a series
of UBEs? Some of the financial reports the users are running would like to
have them "automated". I was thinking of using the scheduler to have them
run one right after the other. I don't see where you can set any
dependancies in the scheduler. The only thing is the date/time. But if you
don't know how long a report will take, you may not want the second one
starting before the first one finishes.

Any ideas? Other than rewriting the UBEs to call the next one.

Thanks,

We are on B7331 but I am sure it would be the same on XE. Nightly we use
the Job Scheduler to run our postings, I have the jobs set 5 minutes apart
but they sometimes will take longer depending on the days activity.
However, the next job will not start until the one finishes because we have
them all set to run in a single-threaded queue.

Hope this helps.

Wade,

In following your posts over time I am quite confident that you know more
about OW and its capabilities than I do but I have this idea for your
scheduling.

Why don't you use RBATCH or another single threaded queue (not the default)
for scheduling jobs that need to run one right after the other.

Just a thought.

We haven't used any JDE supplied scheduler, but instead use Opalis Robot.
It has been very useful.

It can be tedious to setup initially, but it is very flexible.

We can run jobs sequentially, or concurrently, wait for a group of jobs to
finish before proceeding et c.

Also we send emails when the jobs have finished, or pages if they don't finish
by a certain time.

Is anyone on the list either using or aware of a flat-rate program that will
interface with CSMS and Service Billing?

Thanks to all who responded.

I had completely (temporarily) forgotten about the single-threaded queue
option.
