Managing internetwork dependencies in the plan

About this task

Internetwork dependencies are managed in the plan from the conman command line by managing the EXTERNAL job stream. Within the EXTERNAL job stream the internetwork dependencies are listed as jobs regardless of whether they are defined for jobs or job streams. There is an EXTERNAL job stream for every network agent in the plan.

Within the EXTERNAL job stream, unique job names representing internetwork dependencies are generated as follows:
Is a random number.
Is the current minutes.
Is the current seconds.
The actual name of the job or job stream is stored in the script files specification of the job record.
Note: Remote jobs and job streams are defined and run on their local network in the standard manner. Their use as internetwork dependencies has no effect on their local behavior.
