Altova FlowForce Server 2024 Advanced Edition

Job Execution Steps

Home Prev Top Next

In FlowForce Server, steps define what a job must do (e.g., delete a file, execute a MapForce mapping, send an email). In its simplest form, a step is an operation with failed or successful outcome. Each step must execute a function. You can create as many steps as required for your job and set the order in which the steps must be executed. You can also use the result of a step in other steps.


Add an execution step

To add an execution step, create a job or open an existing job and select the relevant step type in the Execution Steps section of the job configuration page.
