JAMS Jobs can be deployed or promoted to other JAMS Schedulers in the same manner that users can copy Jobs to another Folder.
First, the additional schedulers must be defined in the GUI interface. In the top right corner of the JAMS GUI, click the "? "icon then select Servers. Click the Add Server icon.
Type in the Server name, and then click OK. An additional authentication method can be selected for the additional schedulers.
When promoting a job, select the jobs to promote in the folder view, right click and select Copy To. Select the JAMS Scheduler from the list to copy to, and specify the destination folder. Then click OK.
NOTE: Jobs cannot be copied from JAMS V6.X to JAMS V7.X, nor from JAMS V7.X to JAMS V6.X
Will this transfer job dependencies too? Variables etc?
Hello Matt, this will only transfer the highlighted items, it does not take into account dependencies. Separate objects can be copied such as triggers and variables in the same manner as jobs.
Any dependencies will have to be copied over first, and exist in the folder where they are specified in the depends on job's path. The job with the dependency cannot be copied until its dependent job exists.
Hi - will the elements of the job also be copied from one environment to the next?
Elements that are defined on the job, or overridden at the job level will be copied. However, elements that are inherited by the job, without overriding any value, will not be copied with the job.
Hello, if the "Copy To" is grayed out, what permission needs to be granted?
Thanks a lot!
Hello MaryAnn, CopyTo will be greyed out if you do not have more than one JAMS Scheduler in your server list. The instructions above show you how to add multiple schedulers to the server list that the client can connect to.
If I have jobs in a subfolder, do I first export the parent folder then the child folder when importing into new server? Also the child folder has many variables. Do those get moved with export / import?
Do you have example or link to scripts that can do the promotion from one folder to another (with dependencies?)
Thanks a lot!
@MaryAnn, I'm sorry we do not. If you're interested in having our team create something custom for you. Please open a support ticket so we can get you in touch with the right people.
