Component Job Administration

Component jobs are predefined component requests that use parameter values that you have defined. You should use component jobs instead of component requests if you are planning to regularly run component requests with the same parameter values.

To define a component job

  1. Navigate to the Enterprise Configuration screen.
  2. Click the Component Job Definitions view tab.
  3. In the Component Job Definitions list, click menu button and then New Record.
  4. In the Name field, type in a descriptive name for the component job, such as Monthly EIM.
  5. In the Short Name field, type in an alias for the component job, such as MonthEIM.
  6. In the Component field, select the component that will be used for this component job, such as Enterprise Integration Manager.
  7. NOTE:  After a component job is created, do not change the value of the Component field. To change the component for an existing component job, create a new component job instead of modifying the existing one.

  8. In the Description field, type in a description of the component job.
  9. In the lower list, click the menu button and then New Record.
  10. In the Name field, select the parameter you would like to define for this component job.
    1. In the Name field, click the select button.
    2. The Component Parameters dialog box appears. The parameters that appear in the Component Parameters dialog box vary depending on the component you selected in Step 6.

    3. In the Component Parameters dialog box, click Query.
    4. In the Name field, type in the name of the parameter and click Go.
    5. Click OK.
  11. In the Value field, type in the value for the parameter.
  12. The default value is automatically displayed in this field.

  13. Check the appropriate flags for this parameter. To set the parameter type, use the following flags:
  14. Click the menu button and then click Save Record.
  15. Continue to choose parameters by completing Step 8 through Step 12 until you have defined the parameters for the component job.
  16. Stop and restart the Siebel Server.
  17. For information on starting and stopping Siebel Servers, see Siebel Server Administration.
