The JobScheduler Operating Center (JOC) Cockpit is the end user interface for the JobScheduler Web Services application. FEATURE AVAILABILITY STARTING FROM RELEASE 1.11
The JOC Cockpit and Web Services bring a powerful new feature set to the JobScheduler and allow users to operate a number of JobSchedulers as well as access information about the jobs and orders that are planned and those that have run. The architecture behind the JOC Cockpit is described in detail in the JOC Cockpit Architecture article. This article provides a summary of the features provided through the JOC Cockpit.
The JOC Cockpit Dashboard is an interface view that provides users with an overview of the activities of their JobSchedulers as well as a starting point for accessing information and managing scheduling activities. In addition a number of functions can be executed directly from the Dashboard.
Authentication and Authorization
The JOC Cockpit brings user authentication and authorization to the JobScheduler.
Authentication can either take place against an Apache ShiroTM compliant configuration file, an LDAP compliant directory service or information stored in a database.
Authorization is defined in Roles and Permissions and an example set of Roles and Permissions is provided with the JOC Cockpit installation. System administrators are able to define their own User Roles and Permission sets as required.
The JOC Cockpit is able to handle authentication of multiple users and their authorization for multiple JobSchedulers simultaneously and includes an editor in the Manage Accounts view for the configuration of authentication and authorization.
The JOC Cockpit allows service providers to configure both shared and dedicated services over any number of JobScheduler Masters.
Navigation and Usability
The JOC Cockpit uses modern display techniques to allow the clear representation and simplified configuration of potentially large numbers of JobScheduler objects.
Customizations are a powerful means to create and manage custom filters that are available for any list view with the JOC Cockpit. By default customizations are private, however, they can be shared across teams.
The JOC Cockpit notifies the user about scheduling events from all the JobScheduler Masters and Master Clusters being operated from the JOC Cockpit in near real-time.
The Daily Plan provides information at a glance about which jobs and orders are scheduled to run, which are running and which have run over a given period. The plan also shows the current status of jobs and orders and the time at which they are expected to end.
The History provides information about the jobs and orders that have been started over a given period of time. In addition, information about the current status of jobs and orders is shown along with the information about the end states returned by those jobs and orders that have run.
The Audit Log allows compliance and operations reporting requirements for job scheduling activities to be met by providing an automatic and secure record of all actions that users of the JobScheduler Web Service - including JOC Cockpit users and external applications - perform on job-related objects. The Audit Log lists the relevant JobScheduler objects - Jobs, Job Chains, Orders, etc. - and any actions that modify their status.
The JOC Cockpit Run-time Editor has been introduced to simplify making temporary changes to Job and Order start times by adding Run-Times or selecting Schedules. When editing Run-Times the editor follows configuration terms such as, "Execute an Order every Monday at 09:00" or "Execute a Job every 1st and 2nd Monday of the month".
The JOC Cockpit is multi-language capable and, in particular, is able to handle Asian languages that require UTF-8.
The User Profile area allows users to individually configure the Notifications they receive as well as History and Log information.
REST Web Service Interface
The JOC Cockpit comes with a REST Web Service interface for JSON. This interface is used for access to the job inventory and the job history as well as individual objects such as jobs, job chains and orders and provides current status information.
The JOC Cockpit has been designed from the beginning to ensure that it is suitable for use in security-sensitive environments.
The JobScheduler Web Services provide extensive logging for the JOC Cockpit, including the compliance-conform Audit Log.
- The JOC Cockpit uses AngularJS for the GUI component.
- The JobScheduler Web Services implement a RESTful interface with Java.
