Issue/Introduction

We would like to monitor the status of this 800 jobs in the AS400. There are more than 80000 jobs in the AS400 system. Is there a way to hard code the string of 800 jobs? They do not have common attributes.

Environment

Release : 20.x

Component : UIM - JOBS

Resolution

The jobs probe requires that you setup a profile for each job your want to monitor.

You would need to setup all 800 individually.

There is no way to currently create a profile manually without selecting it from the list of active jobs.

And no way to filter the active jobs list.

Once you set up one you might be able to use regex to match other jobs based on one of the fields. But if the jobs have nothing in common then probably you will need to setup each individually.
