Details view

Details view displays the structure of the job streams, associated dependencies, and run cycles in a tree table.

Use this view to create, display, and modify job streams, and to add jobs, run cycles, and dependencies to them. It shows the job stream with all the jobs it contains, associated dependencies, and run cycles.

This view displays the structure of the objects in a tree table. It applies to
  • job streams
  • job streams and resources.

It also shows the resource availability intervals. Use the view also to create, display, and modify resources, and to add availability intervals to them.

In this view you can use the following toolbar, icons, and buttons:
Details toolbar
All the actions available using the icons of the toolbar act on the root object of the tree table.
printer icon
Use this button to print the contents of the tree in text format for job streams. Click the button to open a new page containing the information in the tree table for the job stream you are viewing. The output is organized in columns. For all job streams, the object properties shown are Name, Type, and Workstation.

For z/OS job streams, also Task Type and Owner are shown.

Remove icon
This icon is located at the end of each row and in the objects pop-up menu. Click it to remove the corresponding object from the tree table. Use it, for example, to remove a job from a job stream or a dependency from a job. The removal becomes effective only when you save the object.
Select an Action
Use this button to act on objects located at inner levels. Select the object in the tree table and open the menu, or use the pop-up menu by right-clicking the object. This button is enabled only if the operation is available for the selected object.
Some of the actions available from the action menus are:
Add Objects Selected in Working List
Add all the objects currently selected in the Working List. The objects are added as part of the flow or as dependencies. For example, adding a job definition to a job stream adds it to the job stream flow, while adding a prompt adds it as a dependency.
Add object
Add any specific object listed in the option.
Open Job Definition
Open the definition of the job to display its properties as they are defined in the database.
Copy the object and keep it in memory until you either copy another object or close the Workload Designer window. You can only copy a job stream if it already exists in the database (that is, it must have been saved at least once). You can also copy dependencies, except for internal job dependencies.
Paste as Dependency
Paste the object previously copied as a dependency of the selected one. The copied object can be a job, a job stream, or any kind of dependency. You can only paste source objects that already exist in the database.
You can paste a job stream as:
  • External job stream dependency of the same or of another job stream
  • External job stream dependency of a job in the same or in another job stream
You can paste a job as:
  • External job dependency of itself or of the job stream it belongs to
  • Internal job dependency of another job in the same job stream
  • External job dependency of another job stream or job in another job stream

The object selected in the tree table is highlighted in light blue and is displayed in bold in the Working List. When you select an object in the tree table, its properties are displayed in the lower pane, where you can view and edit them, if you are authorized to do so.
