Introduction

  • Workflows implement jobs and dependencies for workload automation. Orders are triggers that cause the execution of workflows.
  • The Configuration View offers a graphical design view from the JS7 - Workflow Editor.
  • The Workflows View offers a tactical view that can be used to monitor the processing of orders with workflows in near real-time and perform interventions if required.

Configuration View for Workflows

The Configuration View is available from the main menu item of the same name.

  • This view has the following panels:
    • Left panel: The tree allows navigation to folders and objects. Workflows can be available in any folder from the sub-folder Workflows.
    • Middle panel: The design view allows JS7 - Workflow Instructions to be copied from the tool panel to a workflow by drag & drop. 
    • Right panel: The property editor allows management of instruction properties such as the jobs that are available with a workflow.
  • For details of how to design workflows see the JS7 - Workflow Editor.

Execution Views for Workflows

The Workflows View offers a tactical approach to Workflows and Orders:

  • Operations on Workflows include:
    • filtering workflows by name.
    • searching for workflows.
  • Operations on Orders include:
    • filtering orders by date.
    • monitoring orders: The JOC Cockpit GUI is updated regularly to display orders moving through the steps of a workflow.
    • controlling orders: The view allows, for example, cancelling, suspending and resuming orders.
    • adding orders: The view allows orders to be added for immediate or later execution.

The Workflows View is available from the main menu item of the same name:


Explanation:

  • Each row in the right panel displays a number of action shortcuts:
    •  and  icons allows display of nodes in a workflow to be expanded and collapsed.
    • icon allows allows an order to be added for immediate or later execution.
    • icon allows navigation of the Tabular View of the workflow.
    •  icon allows navigation of the Graphical View of the workflow.
  • In addition, the  icon opens action menu, which also contains the above actions.

Graphical View

The graphical view displays JS7 - Workflow Instructions and patterns used, for example, in forking.

  • Running orders can be monitored as they pass along the instructions of the workflow.
  • New orders can be added.


Explanation:

  • The graphical view shows the workflow instructions and any orders. Orders are shown at their current position and state in the workflow.
  • Depending on the order state, operations are available in the order's action menu for cancelling, suspending and resuming orders.
  • The lower part of the screen shot shows the execution history and provides access to order and task logs.

Tabular View

The tabular view offers concise display of workflow instructions with similar actions as the graphical view:

  • Running orders can be monitored as they pass along the instructions of the workflow.
  • New orders can be added.


Explanation:

  • The tabular view shows the instructions for the selected workflow and any orders that are currently being processed by this workflow.
  • Depending on the order state operations are available in the order's action menu for cancelling, suspending and resuming orders.
  • The lower part of the screenshot shows the execution history and provides access to order logs and task logs.
