Hello, I have scheduled a job on iSeries advanced job scheduler and it has to finish at 11:30 AM. The email should go to share holders any day it won't finish by 11:30. How could I do this using Job scheduler notification options ? I don't want to use any other job to track and send out email.

    It's not clear if you want to have two jobs or not -- a first job to do processing and another to do notifications in case of lateness, or one job to do both processing and sending e-mail. Or if you simply want to job scheduler to send e-mail all by itself when the processing job doesn't finish on time...? Two jobs is fairly easy. One job could get it done, but it wouldn't have much to do with the job scheduler. The job scheduler isn't going to send e-mail without starting a job to do it. Please clarify how you would like your processing done. Tom

    Tom, I found that we can setup job notification to send mail in normal end, abnormal end and not started by given time. I am searching for an option to setup in such a way that Job scheduler itself should send email when job has not finished by given time for a job (irrespective of job not started at all or running but not completed in given time). I just wanted to find out if this option is available before adding another job just for notification. Could you write me whether this option is available or not !! If you make sure that this option is not available, then I would set up another job for notification as this is the option left. Thanks Sim

    Don't know about the jobs scheduler doing this. But Ops Nav (Series i Navigator) has a job monitor that can be set to trigger a program or command based upon the status of a job at a certain time. It seems quite flexable.

    I am searching for an option to setup in such a way that Job scheduler itself should send email when job has not finished by given time for a job (irrespective of job not started at all or running but not completed in given time). I don't have advanced job scheduler available right now, so I can't check deeper. I do see more than one mention in web documents like this:
    • The units of work can then be scheduled or started manually. With various notification checkpoints, users can be notified when steps have started, completed, did not run by a specific time, and exceeded the run limit.
    That comes from the 'Work Flow Manager' section of IBM Advanced Job Scheduler for i. What I find says that "on-line documentation" provides details. The location of that documentation is apparently connected to the advanced job scheduler add-on for iSeries Navigator. iNav is where I would look for info on notifications through the 'Work Flow Manager'. If I can connect to a system with the advanced job scheduler active, I'll see what I can find, but it will probably take a while. Tom
