Can Redwood intercept and combine the output of all jobs in one chain then put this on a network share?

We have a request from Security to use Redwood to run jobs for PS1, in the background, then intercept the output, combine it and send it to

a network share.

This would be 1 Chain with 10 steps with each step having its own spool output. At the end of the Chain , Redwood would intercept all of this

output , zip it together, then send this zip file to a network share to be used by Security and Auditors.

    Hi Donna,

    You can create a job definition of type Redwood script, and add it as step 11. In that job definition, you can use the redwood script to iterate through each step in the job chain and fetch the output (getJobFileByName), and write them to a folder in a process server connected to the network share(platform agent).

    Now, i do not know of any zipping methods using redwood script, so you can develop a *.bat or *.sh file to zip the folders and also copy/move it to network share location. Now add this as step 12 in the job chain.

    • Hi Nanda,

      Please have a look at ZipOutputStream (Java Platform SE 7 ), there are numerous examples out there on the web of how to use this to create zip files in Java, note that you can also use JarOutputStream and give the file a .zip extension.

      Note also that you must iterate over all child jobs of the step, steps have no output ;-). We should probably also invite users to post code samples, that way we can help out.

      More complex, still, if you have a job chain with sub-chain (job chain in job chain), you will have to iterate over the jobs in step of the parent, if the job is in fact a child job chain, iterate over its children (steps of the subchain) to retrieve the child jobs and their output ...
