Customers may wish to define a web services job that will trigger another job within dSeries.
Release: DSWAHA01300-12-Workload Automation DE-High Availability
This is applicable on both Windows & UNIX/Linux based systems.
Define a Web Service job using the Web Service Document/Literal job type by dragging it from the palette to the active workspace.
There are a few required fields that the system is expecting. Within the CAWA DE Desktop Client:
On the Basic Panel:
|End point URL:||http://<appserver_name>:8080/axis2/services/EspDSeriesService.EspDSeriesServiceHttpSoap11Endpoint/|
|User:||<User account that will run the job>|
On the Operation Parameters Panel:
The following parameters and values are required
|/triggerAddEvent/eventName||<EVENTPREFIX>.<JOBNAME> Example: SCHEDMASTER.HOUSEKEEPING|
|/trigger/AddEvent/userParms||<User Account that will run the job>|
One can get a good idea of what the expected parameters and values for using CAWA DE Web Services to control events/applications/jobs are by using a product called SoapUI. The product is freely available on the web, but is not supported in any way by CA Technologies.
