Defining and Scheduling Jobs Using Control-M

4 hours



The Defining and Scheduling Jobs Using Control-M course works through the process of creating definitions used to schedule jobs. It begins by introducing the concept of calendars, and describing how various types of calendars can be created. It then jumps to the actual job definition, describing how it can be used to provide diverse scheduling requirements. Automated actions performed following job completion are also discussed. The final module delves into the use of system and user-defined variables and describes how they can be used to dynamically modify JCL submitted from a Control-M job definition.
