- A Job Resource can hold any number of variables. Such variables are available for JVM Jobs from arguments and for Shell Jobs from environment variables.
- A Job Resource environment variable is automatically available as a local environment variable to a Shell Job.
If a Workflow is assigned the Job Resource then the environment variables of the Job Resource will be propagated to all the Shell Jobs in the workflow.
- If a Job is assigned the Job Resource then this job can use the propagated environment variables of the Job Resource.
- As a result you users can add a variable such as
BusinessDateto an existing or to a new Job Resource. You Users can then assign the Job Resource to a Workflow to make it available to all jobs or limit its scope by assigning it to an individual Job.
