JobScheduler is an Open Source solution for enterprise-level workload automation. It is used to launch executable files and shell scripts, and to run database procedures automatically. JobScheduler stores all information in a back-end database management system.
As you may know, Würth Phoenix is an official partner of the German company SOS Berlin, the creator of the SOS JobScheduler. In our role as partner, we not only resell the JobScheduler solution, but also offer consulting activities for SOS JobScheduler implementations, sizing and so on.
One of the most important features of the latest JobScheduler version 1.12.x is the newly revised JOC Cockpit. JOC Cockpit is most importantly a user interface for job control used with browsers. In this latest version, emphasis was placed mainly on graphics, security, authentication, usability and some new features like calendar management. The look and feel of the JOC Cockpit GUI has been totally modernized.
The focus of the JOC Cockpit security features has been on user access. Users access JobScheduler Master using the web service that performs authentication and authorization ñ optionally against an LDAP directory. Users call up information and manage JobScheduler activities, e.g. current executions, planned executions, history, etc.
With JOC Cockpit, it is possible to operate several Master Instances and any number of JobScheduler Agents that execute jobs and tasks for the Masters.
The user authentication against the JOC Cockpit is role-based, and there are several roles with different permissions. Alternatively roles can be managed locally.
From version 1.12.x onwards, you can use the following visualization features:
- JobScheduler overview dashboard
- Daily plan (The Daily Plan graphical overview is represented with a Gantt chart)
- Card view
- Table view
- Resources view (The resources view shows the status and availability of resources that are required to execute jobs)
Enough talking, now I want to show you a few screenshots of the new version.
