Insert a Predefined Job into an Active Application

You can insert a predefined job into an active Application. The inserted job runs immediately unless the predecessor, time, variable, or resource dependencies are defined in the Application. You can insert multiple jobs at once.

You can insert a predefined job into an active Application. The inserted job runs immediately unless the predecessor, time, variable, or resource dependencies are defined in the Application. You can insert multiple jobs at once.
Suppose that you want to define a job in an Application but do not want to run it when the Application gets triggered. You define a job with no run schedule and upload the Application in the Define view. Later, when required, you insert this predefined job as adhoc workload into the same Application at run time in the Monitor view.
  • You cannot insert a job into an Application that is complete.
  • You cannot insert an external job or a job whose name includes symbolic variable.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Open the 
    Monitor
     perspective.
  2. Subscribe to workload on the server.
    The Applications and their generations are displayed in the Application Monitor view.
  3. Right-click the Application generation you want to insert the job into, select 
    Insert non-selected jobs
     from the menu.
    The 
    Insert non-selected jobs
     dialog opens and displays the list of jobs that were predefined in the Application but did not run when the Application was triggered. The list does not include external jobs and the jobs whose names include symbolic variables.
  4. Select the job that you want to insert. To select all the jobs from the list, click the 
    Select all
     column heading in the table. You can sort the jobs based on job name and type by clicking the 
    Job Name
     and 
    Job Type
     column heading respectively.
  5. (Optional) Click 
    Job Dependents 
    to view the list of external jobs that are dependent on the selected jobs.
     If you do not have access to any of the affected external Applications, only the number of affected external jobs is displayed.
  6. (Optional) Click 
    Simulate
     to simulate the Application with the selected jobs.
     If an Event trigger-time or a job run-time Javascript error occurs during the simulation, the job gets inserted even though the simulation fails.
  7. Click 
    Insert
    .
    The inserted job appears in the Application's graphical view.
    If the immediate predecessor is not available, by default the job looks for the next available predecessor to link to. If Application is defined with 
    Do not inherit dependencies
    , the job does not look for the next available predecessors.
