Job Configuration

Home Prev Top Next

This section explains how to configure a job in FlowForce Server. Job configuration includes the following procedures, some of which are optional (e.g., caching job results):


Creating/duplicating a job

Adding input parameters

Adding execution steps

Caching job results

Setting triggers

Configuring jobs as Web services

Defining credentials

Defining queue settings


Windows network paths


When you create jobs, you will need to refer to file paths on the machine where FlowForce Server runs or to file paths on the network. When you refer to a Windows network path (e.g., a mapped network drive), use the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) syntax. This is necessary because drive letters are not global to the system, and each logon session is assigned its own drive letters.


The UNC has the following syntax: \\server\sharedfolder\filepath, where server refers to the server name in the network (defined by the DNS); sharedfolder refers to a label defined by the administrator (e.g., admin\$ is generally the root directory of the operating system installation); filepath refers to the subdirectories below the share.
