About this task

The parent Job calls Child Jobs based on the child Job list. Each row in the child Job list contains a child Job name. Through the child Job list, you can impose more control over the Job execution, for example, having only part of the child Jobs executed. This can be achieved by adding a Boolean field (Execute in this scenario) in each row of the list.

Note: This scenario stores the child Job list in a text file. It can also be stored in other forms, for example, in an excel file, a database table, and so on.

To create the child Job list:

Procedure

  1. Open a text editor (for example, MS notepad).
  2. Type the following in the text editor.
    Job_Name,Execute
    ChildJob1,true
    ChildJob2,false
    ChildJob3,true
    ChildJob4,false
    ChildJob5,true
  3. Save the file as File_For_Execute.txt.
  4. Close the text editor.
