Remote Task Manager Object (JOBQ)

Remote Task Manager objects monitor and control external processes (that is, non-Automation Engine operations).

Object Definition

This topic provides information on the following:


This object allows you to display, start, cancel, intercept and monitor external operations, that is, operations that run on applications outside the Automation Engine.

In a Remote Task Manager object you collect the filter criteria that identify the external tasks that you want to control. The external processes that comply with those criteria are then displayed on the Tasks window of the Process Monitoring perspective as sub-tasks of the Remote Task Manager object (the hierarchical view must be activated for this purpose). Their object type is JOBD. For example:

See UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT - Host Characteristics.

Adding Processing Steps to External Operations

In the Child Post Process page you can add a script to be processed after the tasks returned by the JOBQ object have ended.
