Notifications

Notifications are created for job warnings and errors:

  • Warnings include to indicate if a job was running shorter or longer than expected. 
    • The JS7 - Job Instruction allows to set the threshold values for minimum and maximum expected duration.
    • A warning does not impact execution of a job.
  • Errors indicate job problems. The can be handled
    • automatically from a workflow, e.g. by use of the JS7 - Try / Catch Instruction
    • manually by a user who can resume and skip execution of jobs in a workflow.
  • Notifications are configured from the Configuration view, see JS7 - Notifications.
  • The Notification view updates automatically if new warnings or errors are raised. It can therefore be used to continuously monitor job problems.
