Notifications

Notifications let you automatically monitor a job's progress and notify users or take action when the job reaches a certain state or condition. You can set up notifications for different job-processing monitor states, such as when a job completes, fails, or becomes overdue. Notifications let you automate your workload processing. You can set up the following three types of notifications:

Notifications let you automatically monitor a job's progress and notify users or take action when the job reaches a certain state or condition. You can set up notifications for different job-processing monitor states, such as when a job completes, fails, or becomes overdue. Notifications let you automate your workload processing. You can set up the following three types of notifications:
  • Email Notifications
    Sends an email when a job reaches any of the states specified in the notification. For example, you can set up a notification to email an operator when a particular job fails or to provide status for a long-running Application.
  • Alert Notifications
    Triggers an Event or runs a JavaScript script when the job reaches any of the states specified in the notification. For example, you can set up an Alert to trigger an Event to start an Application when the last job on another Application completes or run a JavaScript script to complete an Application when a job is overdue.
  • SNMP Notifications
    Sends a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap to Network Management Stations (NMSs) when a job reaches any of the states specified in the notification. For example, you can send an SNMP trap to an SNMP-enabled agent/advanced integration or an SNMP Manager when a particular job fails.
    For more information about SNMP traps, see Configuring SNMP Manager.
To send a notification when a job reaches a certain state, you should set up the notification in the job definition. If you want the notification to apply to all jobs in the Application, you should instead set up the notification in the Application. Notifications in the job definition override notifications in the Application for the same monitor state.
Example: Override Email Notification at the Application Level
Suppose that an Application contains an email notification that sends an email to operator1 for job failure and submission errors. Job A in this Application contains an email notification that sends an email to operator2 when it fails. The following occurs if job A fails or has a submission error:
  • If job A fails, the server sends the email notification to operator2, as referenced in the job definition.
  • If job A has a submission error, the server sends an email to operator1, as referenced in the Application.
