Table 14. Job Manager Job Action Fields

Script Type

Oracle BI Scheduler supports VBScript, JScript, Java, and NQCmd. Set this field according to the type of script referenced by the Script field. The fields that appear depend upon the type of script that you specify.

Script Contains File Name

(VBScript and JScript, only) In the Job Manager, you can enter either a file name or the actual contents of a script in the Script field. Click this option if the Script field contains a file name.


(VBScript and JScript, only) This value is either a reference to a job script file or the contents of a job script itself. If it is a reference, enter a file name in this field, such as TestConnect.js. If no path is given, Oracle BI Scheduler examines the directory referred to in the Default Script Path configuration value in the Scheduler tab of the Job Manager Configuration dialog. If a path is given, the path must be accessible by the Oracle BI Scheduler application.


(VBScript, JScript, and Java, only) Field values are passed to the job script through the Parameters array. Enter one parameter per line. For example:

SELECT Lastname FROM Employee
