Parent workflow parsing rules

Specifies the path and file name of a control file that parses parameters accompanying an input file. For example, Ricoh ProcessDirector can use a control file to parse JCL parameters and values to assign the workflow to a parent job. A control file is used only if the Workflow initialization step property is set to SetJobTypeFromRules or SetJobTypeFromFileName.

Usage note:

Ricoh ProcessDirector provides the receive_jcl_jobtype.cfg sample control file that you can modify and use.

On AIX and Linux, receive_jcl_jobtype.cfg can be found in the /aiw/aiw1/control_files/rules directory.

On Windows, receive_jcl_jobtype.cfg can be found in the c:\aiw\aiw1\control_files\rules directory.

As shipped with Ricoh ProcessDirector, all workflow assignment statements in the file are inactive. For example: #DEFINE $\{Job.JobType} AS "TEST" WHEN ($\{ORIGHOST} != "myWindowshostname") Authorized users can activate an entry by removing the # comment character or they can create their own criteria for assigning the workflow.

See the Reference information section of the Ricoh ProcessDirector information center for more information about control file syntax.
