Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to change the default Shell type option for all Unix jobs? 

In our old Automic Automation Engine environment (Version 10) if a Shell type was not specified under the job's Start parameters, it would use the '-bash' shell. In our new environment (12.3), when a Shell type is not specified it seems to default to the 'bash' shell. Is there a configuration option to change this behavior to act like the old system or in the new version do we have to specify a Shell type for all our jobs?


Old Version

New Version

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : ACTION BUILDER

Resolution

  1. Log into Client 0
  2. Process Assembly
  3. Automic - 0000
  4. Template ->
  5. Find JOBS.UNIX and update the default here:

Than when the object JOBS.UNIX is used to create another job, the shell will be pre-populated with the SHELL you selected.
