Box Logic for Job Processing

  • 1.  Box Logic for Job Processing

    Posted 10-05-2016 11:11 AM

    Hello, I am creating a box in CA Workload Automation in AutoSys. 

     

    The box would contain five jobs. 

     

    I was wondering if there was a way to make the box stop running if one of the jobs fails during the box's run. 

     

    Then when the next runtime occurs regardless of the box success or failure to run the box at next time interval. 

     

    So: 

    at 5:00pm Box run-(Jobs 1-5 run) Job 2 fails so the Box stops processing all jobs in box 

    at 5:15 Box runs(Jobs 1-5 run) regardless that the previous run of the box failed.

    box_failure is an alternative, but box_terminator is simpler if you are concerned with only jobs within the box.

    a box failing is different than a box being killed.

    Fail and terminated are not synonymous.

    They are as different as a square and rectangle

    A rectangle is a square but a square is NOT a rectangle.

     

    Thank you
