CA Workload Automation AE

Issue/Introduction

What options are available in autosys to perform machine selection?  Not seeking info on virtual machines.   In the past, could perform `get_mach_machine.ksh` by setting the machine field to the same and it would perform what's in my script to select the best machine.  Can global variable be used yet? 

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

The product allows for one or more machines to be listed separate by a comma or you can list a machine chooser script encased in back ticks.
The product does not allow for the use of an autosys global variable.
