XML input file
- Database name
Steps based on the CreateJobsFromXML step template read the information in this file but do not modify or delete the file.
A workflow can run two or more CreateJobsFromXML steps on this file, and each step can use a different value for the XPath expression to create jobs property.
You can use Ricoh ProcessDirector symbol notation for the name of the file. For example, the default value returns the name of an XML file in the spool directory for the job. For more information about symbol notation and how to use it, refer to the help system.
The XML input file can be the job file in the spool directory or a file stored at another location on the system.
If it is the job file, keep the default value for the XML input file property.
If it is stored at another location, specify the full path and file name as the value of the XML input file property.
When the XML input file is stored at another location, the file does not become part of the job that the CreateJobsFromXML step processes. The step reads the information in the file, uses the information to create XML files, and submits those XML files as jobs.
