Redwood - Schedule a job dependant on another jobs completion?

Hoping someone can help as documentation on Redwood seems to be very limited.

We are currently running Redwood for the "Standard Jobs" without an issue, however we now have a requirement to start testing our batch schedule through Redwood and can't seem to figure out how to create jobs with dependencies on other job completions?

Can anyone point us in the right direction?

The other issue we have, is that we are unable to find an option to release a job based on an event trigger?

Thanks a lot

    Hi Matthew,

    Jobs can be made dependant in two ways.

    1. Using Job chains where you will be able to have multiple scripts (each script executes a step in multi step job) dependant on one other. (Documentation for the same is available in Redwood help with key word – ‘What is a job-chain’). In this case you will have one job chain with multiple scripts getting executed in a parallel or sequential way. Also it is possible to embed job chains in other job chain. You can take different actions based on output / processing state (completed, cancelled etc.) of previous script in Job chain.

    2. Raising events by predecessor script which in turn triggers next script.

    First solution is more appropriate and used one.

    If you are talking about events in Redwood they can be raised and sensed by scripts and can be defined in script properties under node –wait Events & Raise events.

    Hope this helps.
