Schedule Job

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

Job command
Select the URL-based command to run from this list.
Job parameters
The queryString 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 parameter 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 parameter is omitted, the job can be run by any host. This parameter 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 following form: name.domain
Schedule interval
The number of seconds between successive runs of this job. If this parameter is omitted, the job runs only once.
Job attempts
The number of times that the scheduler retries the job, if it fails. Use this parameter together with the Seconds to retry parameter. Both parameters must be present to re-try the store job.
Seconds to retry
The number of seconds before a failed store job is retried. Use this parameter together with the Job attempts parameter. Both parameters must be present to re-try the job.
Scheduler policy
Specifies the policy to be used by the scheduler when the store job has failed to run more than once. Two possible values are defined:
The store job runs only once and the next run is scheduled for the future; this is the default.
The store job runs as many times as necessary to recover all missed runs.
Job priority
The number associated with the priority of this job. This value will be 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 parameter 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.
Associated task command
The task command that determines whether the job needs to run.
