Job Conditions

See Also: Job Inter-Dependencies | Job Triggers | Resources | Event-Driven Responses

Conditions allow you to make execution of a job conditional on factors other than the job's trigger. Conditions can be set on:

  • Files. For example, you can have your data processing job run only when the input file it needs is has been transferred to the server.
  • Variables defined within the job.
  • External processes.
  • Other jobs. For example, you may have an end-of-day job that runs at 7:00 each evening, but you need to make sure that 3 previous jobs have finished first. Job conditions allow adTempus to automatically wait, if necessary, for the other jobs to finish.
  • Scripts. If you have a scenario not covered by any of the built-in conditions, you can write a script that tells adTempus whether to proceed with the job.
