Event Job Scheduling

    Dear Experts,

     

    I have a requirement as followed.

    JOB A --> Independent Job at defined interval

    JOB B ---> Event based on JOB A ( Job B should be triggered only on the event of JOB A execution ).

     

    Could you please help me how to achieve this? 

    I was going through the Automic blogs and found that Activate_UC_Object can be used. Could you please share the script ?

    If you are using an event object, please share the screenshot or the script that could be helpful.

     

    Thank you in advance.

    I'm not sure why you would need an event object to drive JOB_B...I think you could simply have JOB_A trigger JOB_B either upon completion (e.g., in the PostProcess tab), or else via a subsequent task in it's parent workflow).

     

    Anyway, if you want to go the ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT route, here's the syntax you're after:

    :SET &RETVAL# = ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT(JOB_B)
    :IF &RETVAL# = "0" OR "20423"
    :  PRINT "[CRITICAL] Failed to activate uc4 object! (return code = $RETVAL#)"
    :  EXIT 1
    :ENDIF
