I have outline a plan and I need your help if this is possible? One of the customer ask is to schedule a job in Autosys once a Change task approved in Service Now . Current process is to manually updates to the scheduling databases per documented user requests in ServiceNow change records.
I am an Automic professional and based on my Automic experience I have outline below plan.
I am not sure if an Autosys job can schedule another job based on inputs.
Is it possible to code a job which can schedule other jobs?
Please let me know if it is possible and How?
Hi @Kuntal Sadhu,
The short answer is Yes.
a) You can create a job via code. It just needs to be in jil format in a file, which AutoSys understands. You may use your favorite scripting language to create one.
b) Use the command jil < file to load the job defn
c) If the job defn already has a date condition defined, then the job will run at the next available time/date as per the date/time definition
d) If it is a adhoc job/jobflow, then you can start the job manually using AutoSys command sendevent (on AutoSys server/client) or via AutoSys Web Services (remotely)
For more details please refer the product docs or your local AutoSys experts.

I just wanted to share that AutoSys 12.0+ also now supports creating jobs via its REST API.
