Group Scheduling is a feature in Workbench that allows you to group job schedules and set up job dependencies if desired.
To get started in Group Scheduling select the triple dot menu on the left pane.
Choose Group Schedules and then select the plus sign to add a new Group.
Select the jobs you would like to be included in your Group.
Once you have selected your jobs, you can order or delete them in the Run Order menu using the up and down arrows and the delete icon.
From this menu you can also choose to run jobs with previous or after previous, and choose whether a job should be marked as Critical.
- With previous: Any jobs marked with previous will run at the same time as the job ordered before it as a synchronous run.
- After previous: Any jobs marked after previous will wait until the job ordered before it has completed running before it will start as an asynchronous run.
- If you mark a job as Critical all subsequent jobs set to run after the critical job will fail if the job marked Critical fails.
After setting up the run order, you can choose a schedule. The scheduling options are the same as when setting up an individual job.
Once the schedule is set, you can name the Group and then select Done.
To save your Group, select the save icon in the top right corner.
