    Hi Experts,

    Can anyone please guide or provide me scripts of how to use Unix CALL API feature (where the source code is in C). Below are the elaborative questions,

    1) Which method to invoke to trigger an Automic Job from a unix script and How?

    2) How do we invoke ini file from the server on a unix script.

    Any reply on this is highly appreciated

    Thanks


    Regards,

    Sathy

    Hi Sathy,

    the CallAPI (regardless of the platform) is designed to send AE script commands to the AE system. You find an explanation and some examples how to use this tool here: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/11.2/AE/11.2/All%20Guides/help.htm#ucacif.htm%3FTocPath%3DApplication%2520Integration%2520Guide%7CCallAPI%7C_____2

    Re (1): in order to start an object you have to use this line:
    :set &start# = activate_uc_object (<AE object name>)

    Re (2): what do you mean with "invoke ini file from the server"?

    regards,
    Peter
