PeopleSoft Jobs and Schedule JobSet Definitions
PeopleSoft Process Scheduler enables you to schedule one or more processes as a group. The terminology you use to identify such a group in PeopleSoft is known as a PeopleSoft Job or PSJob or just job in short.
A PeopleSoft Process is defined as a single task, program, or routine, such as a COBOL program or an Application Engine program or a SQR that runs either on the client or on a server.
A job consists of one or more processes of the same or different types that are submitted as a unit and can run either in series or parallel. They require the scheduling support that only a server environment can offer and all processes must be API-aware.
Scheduled JobSets enable you to schedule a recurring job and in addition, each process within a job can be altered to set up its own runcontrol parameters or set output destination options or set the operating system where the process is to be scheduled.
There are a few features that are available when scheduling JobSets that are not available with recurring jobs:
- You can have different run control ID for each process within a job.
- Job items can be run from different operating systems or servers.
- Job items can run at specific times.
- You can change attributes to any job items.
