Using Appworx to Schedule Jobs in Banner Joyce Feimer - IT Services Analyst and Eric Raznick- Director, ITS San Mateo County Community College District
SMCCD About 27,000 students
SMCCD Live with Banner 7 - Student, HR, Fin Aid, Finance, Other products: Xtender, SARS, Ad Astra, Hyperion (Brio), etc.. Using Banner since version 1! Now using IBM AIX (Unix)
SMCCD Why we wanted an automated Job Scheduler… –Had been on VMS for many years Really liked “single threaded queues” Didn’t have a lot of background in Unix shell scripts (cron is icky!) Wanted something designed to work with Banner Ability to monitor the jobs as they are running You don’t have to feed it!
SMCCD Type of jobs we run from Appworx: Nightly feeds (sfrfasc, sfpfaud, tgrfeed, tgrappl, furfeed, etc..) Hourly Shell scripts (stats, moving files around) External Application Extracts Warehouse jobs Daily Statistical Reports “Clean-up” scripts Creation of “static web pages” Baseline Banner jobs!

Creating a Module
Define the library
Define Program Type
Predecessor - Success
Predecessor - Complete
Frequency of Runtimes
Daily Reoccurring Jobs
Ad Hoc Submission
Enter Prompts & Options
Submit job to run
Output - Log files
Log File of Failed Job
Viewing Output Files We licensed a small program called RptView (Report Viewer) for Windows from Drec Software Looks like “greenbar”! Contact Info: –http://www.drecsoftware.com/
Output – List files
Important Things to Know… If you copy the database – be careful… In Chains - consideration of the “Predecessor” Actions are really important! (Success, Failure, Complete, etc) Does not use the path statement the same way – you need to make sure you are pointed at the right version of executables.
Questions??? Suggestions??? Many thanks from Eric & Joyce
