Issue/Introduction

Team,

I got a request from the client, where they need to monitor specific job flows on WCC. 
I thought that global commands would be helpful on this case, but they need too many jobs/flows included. 
Please see below the list of jobs / commands and let me know if you have another solution to accomplish their needs.

They want to create a specific global command for each box/job:

The Box Batches need to be added
autorep -J n%|grep RU
autorep -J n%|grep FA
autorep -J cpa6% | grep 'FA'
autorep -J cpa6% | grep 'RU'
autorep -J cpa6% | grep 'SU'
autorep -J n%new%tab%pl%daily%
autorep -J n%new%tab%aff%daily%
autorep -J n%new%tab%cl%daily%
autorep -J n%icams%
autorep -J n%chg%batch%
autorep -J n%synch%ref%
autorep -J n%capis%
autorep -J npa6%daily%
autorep -J npa6%dcs%
autorep -J b7a6%ex%daily%
autorep -J b7a6%ex%adp
autorep -J b7a6%ex%Monday
autorep -J b7a6%ex%monday 
autorep -J b7a6%ex%adp
autorep -J b7a6%ex%daily  
autorep -J npa6%monthly
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_other_process -q
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_morning_daily_jobs
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_remits
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_audit
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_process
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_referrals
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_blmfld_print
autorep -J cpa6p1bxd_daily_finish
autorep -J cpa6%cp900*
autorep -J cpa6p1bxw_amtsum_weekend
autorep -J cpa6p1bxw_status_file_process
autorep -J cpa6p1bxw_weekly_chargeoffs
autorep -J cpa6p1bxm_mthly_allowable_feed
autorep -J cpa6p1bxm_monthly_jobs
autorep -J cpa6p1bxm_get_claims_data
autorep -J cpa6p1bxm_single_source_feed

Resolution

The solution you have is probably the best even though it is cumbersome.

there are other options I will list out below but all have their drawbacks as well.
Options 1:
You could modify all of the jobs so add a group attribute or application attribute
this would allow you to then run a single autrep command and use the -I or -B command line switch to pull all of the jobs at once.

Note:
The downside is that someone could use the same field to do a send event command and start all of the jobs at once.
Also, this may take considerable effort to modify all of the jobs.

Option 2:
Create a View for all of the jobs in WCC.

Note:
The downside to this is, depending on the actual number of jobs this could impact the performance of WCC or just be very slow.
