Job Creation via Script

Environment

Release: AOATAM99000-9.0-Automic-One Automation Tools-Application Manager
Component:

Resolution

Symptoms

We are planning to setup a Automic script which will automatically create jobs based on file input.


Resolution

Automicjob objects can not be created using Automic Script.
The only way to create these objects outside the Automic user interfaces are:

1.
Import of XML files Automic, which were previously created in the file system (using Notepad or user program)

2.
Use of Automic application interfaces with almost all functions of the Automic user interfaces from a Java program can be executed (including create objects). The application interface is practically an extension of the Automic call API.

The existing examples of the API are Java programs, and can therefore not be used in Automic Script.

Both options are documented in the documentation or help Automic on the CD. This solution is usually fulfilled by our consulting group, which might produce
additional costs.
