Schedule Job

The Schedule Job window allows you to schedule a job to run for your site.

Job command
Select the URL-based command you want to run from this list.
Note: If you are logged onto the site level Administration Console, although the ReleasetoFulfillment command displays in this list, it is not supported for site level jobs.
Job parameters
The query string of the command that is to be run. All special characters, such as &, =, /, and ?, must be encoded using standard HTML coding. If you use the form provided, the encoding will be done for you.
Start date
The date this job should start running.
Start time
The time this job should start running. The time must be entered in the 24 hour clock format.
Associated user
The user on whose behalf this job is run. By default, the user ID of the current user is entered in this field. It may be replaced by typing in another user ID. This value is stored in the LOGONID column of the USERREG database table.
Allowed host
The name of the host allowed to run this job. If this field is omitted, the job can be run by any host. This field is only needed if the scheduler is running on multiple hosts and if a job needs to be restricted to one of them. The host name should be in the form: name.domain
Schedule interval
The number of seconds between successive runs of this job. If this field is omitted, the job is run only once.
Job attempts
The number of times the scheduler retries the job if it fails. Use this field together with the Seconds to retry field. Both fields must be present to re-try the job.
Seconds to retry
The number of seconds before a failed job is retried. Use this field together with the Job attempts field. Both fields must be present to re-try the job.
Scheduler policy
Specifies the policy to be used by the scheduler when the job has failed to run. Two possible values are defined:
The job is run only once and the next run is scheduled for the future; this is the default.
The job is run as many times as necessary to recover all missed runs.
Job priority
The number associated with the priority of this job. This value is inserted into the SCCPRIORITY column of the SCHCONFIG table. A greater number indicates a higher priority job.
Application type
The application schedule pool that the job will be a part of. The purpose of this field is to constrain resource-intensive jobs to a limited number of threads. The application types, and the rules governing their access to resources, are defined by the user in the XML server configuration file. The default application type is null.
