Installation for Containers

Use the JS7 - Installation for Containers section to pull images ready to run with Docker®, Kubernetes®, OpenShift® and a number of other platforms.

For evaluation purposes, the embedded H2® database included with JOC Cockpit can be used. For use with any other DBMS see the JS7 - Database article.

Installation On Premises

Use the JS7 - Download section to download the software to your environment, then proceed with the JS7 - Installation On Premises section.

For evaluation purposes, the JOC Cockpit installer offers an embedded H2® database. For use with any other DBMS see JS7 - Database.

Initial Operation

Find information about setting up your scheduling environment in the JS7 - Initial Operation section.


To give you an easy start, we suggest that you download some presets that you can import into JOC Cockpit from the Configuration view - for details see JS7 - Inventory Export and Import:


You might be interested in downloading a number of examples of workflows and jobs for operation with Agents on Unix and Windows respectively. The examples can be helpful for creating your own workflows and job dependencies. The examples correspond to those that you will find in the JS7 - Online Demo. Please import the Defaults as explained in the previous section before importing examples.

Unix examples make use of the Agent Name primaryAgent, Windows examples use the Agent Name windowsAgent. You can modify the Agent assignment with the example jobs or you can create this Agent Alias Name (recommended), see JS7 - Initial Operation for Standalone Controller. Then deploy & release examples to your JS7 Controller, see JS7 - Deployment of Scheduling Objects.
