We want to know if it is possible to define jobs in a contentious integration and continuous delivery environment so that job definitions, modifications, removals can be automated. Are there other ways this can be accomplished?
Release : 11.3.6
Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)
Please find below the answer to each of your questions:
Q1: We are thinking of having JIL-files or templates checked into source control, and then let the build server deploy changes to AutoSys.
R1: This is a fairly common technique used by AutoSys customers. It works with all versions. In AutoSys 12.0, we introduced a REST web service that could also be used to do this. It’s advantage is that there is no need to deploy an AutoSys client.
Q2: Are there other ways this can be accomplished?”
R2: As mentioned above. AutoSys 12.0 provides REST web services which would work from anywhere HTTP communication is available.
