How to configure JAMS to display an interactive window while running a job

Follow

In most cases, a JAMS job will be run as a background process, but there may be cases where a user will need an interactive window to be displayed.

If this is required, an existing or new execution method can be created to allow for this functionality. 

To modify an existing Execution Method:

  • Click on Execution Methods shortcut in the Configuration group in the shortcut bar on the left hand side of the JAMS client window.
  • Double click on the Execution Method to be modified, in most cases, this will be the Command Execution Method.
  • Select the Source tab and check the box for the Interactive feature, then save and close the window using the circle with the check mark within it.
  • Note this will affect all jobs currently utilizing this Execution Method

To create a new Execution Method with the Interactive feature enabled:

  • Click on Execution Methods shortcut in the Configuration group in the shortcut bar on the left hand side of the JAMS client window.
  • Click Add in the top right area of the JAMS client window to add a new Execution Method.
  • Follow the New Execution Method Creation Wizard to create the new Execution Method, fill out the name, and select the base Execution Method. For example, Windows Command procedures will use Command method as a base method. Check the box to edit the new method when done.
  • Modify the new Execution Method as shown above, then save and close using the same method.

Associate this new Execution Method to the job:

  • Open the job's properties window, select the properties tab and find the Source Options section.
  • Select the new Execution Method from the list, you may have to refresh the list before it will appear. Double click the new Execution Method, then save and close the job.2017-03-07_1523.png
