Creating job stream definitions

How to define a new job stream definitions using the Dynamic Workload Console.

About this task

From the Workload Designer panel of the Dynamic Workload Console, you can define job streams, running on both distributed and z/OS environments. Most of them can also be created using composer (on distributed systems) and ISPF (on z/OS systems) interfaces.

Optionally, you can quickly submit the job stream into the current plan to be run immediately. You might want to do this for testing purposes before implementing the job stream in large-scale production. See Quick submit of jobs and job streams.

To create a new job stream definition from the Dynamic Workload Console, perform the following procedure:


  1. From the navigation toolbar, click Administration > Workload Definitions > Manage Workload Definitions
  2. Specify an engine name, either distributed or z/OS.
    The Workload Designer opens. Job types and characteristics vary depending on whether you select a distributed or a z/OS engine.
  3. In the Create New pane, select Job Stream.
  4. In the properties panel, specify the attributes for the job stream definition you are creating. For all the details about available fields and options, see the online help by clicking the "?" on the top-right corner.
  5. Click Save to save the job definition in the database.
