External triggering of the billing (parallel mode)

Hi experts,

Our customer uses Billing in parallel mode.

Apart from that, they would like to trigger billing activities with their own external Job Scheduler.

Apparently, they cannot monitor jobs that haven't been scheduled with their own Job Scheduler.

The problem is that the parallel billing mode creates several jobs :

- a main job: the purpose of this main jobs is to create several sub jobs.

- sub jobs: they perform the "real" billing activities.

The main job is finished after just a few seconds.

The sub jobs run during hours.

But the Job Scheduler has only a view on the main job... So "real" billing jobs cannot be monitored by the external Job Scheduler.

We need to know when these sub jobs are finished because several installation types must be billed every day.

And we can only bill one installation type at a time. If not, we encouter a lot of troubles because some elements are used by other billing processes.

Could you explain me how you deal with Billing in parallel mode and especially with its external triggering ?
