The EnterWorks Job Scheduling feature allows you to schedule the following types of activities to be run immediately, in the future, or on a recurring basis:

  • Imports

  • Exports:

    • Repository Exports

    • Database View/DataMart Exports

    • Template Exports

  • Promotions

Each type of activity has a pair of repositories that are used to define, trigger, and monitor scheduled instances of the activity, (also called “activity jobs”).

  • Scheduled <activity> repository: Each record in this repository defines one scheduled activity, including how often it is to be run, locations of files and templates, pre- or post- processing that is to be performed, and how to respond to any incurred errors.

  • Scheduled <activity> Jobs Repository: A job monitor for scheduled activities. When a scheduled activity is triggered to run, a record in this repository is created that tracks the status of the job.

For instance, Scheduled Imports uses the repositories:

  • Scheduled Imports Repository

  • Scheduled Imports Jobs Repository

Workflows are used to execute an activity job once it has been triggered.

System configuration settings control management of the activity repositories, for instance, how long job status is to be retained and where activity log files are located.

The following sections describe the repositories and configuration settings for each type of scheduled activity.
