I think many of you might be already aware of this. Below are different types on how a job can be run by creating necessary settings in CA7/AUTOSYS.

  1. Demanded Manually
  2. Scheduled to run at specific time
  3. Triggered as soon as another job is complete
  4. Triggered as soon as a mainframe dataset is created (from its predecessor job)
  5. Triggered as soon as a File (Excel/CSV/Fixed Format) is available at a specific network location

We are going to talk about option 5 where when a job is triggered as soon as a file is placed at a location. This is helpful in scenarios where you have business users wanting you to run a specific job based on the same format input (different data though) multiple times across a day/week/month. Instead of doing manual steps like FTP dataset, run job, send report to business.

You can automate this by asking business users to place the latest file in a specific network folder and create a new triggered job (and job settings in AUTOSYS) which triggers the job as soon as a new file is placed.

Job steps can be

  • To read the file
  • Format it
  • Process it
  • Send out an email with required report/details
  • Finally delete the input file
