Usage notes:

  • When you create child jobs:
    • If you add a WaitForRelatedJobs step to the workflow for the parent job, the parent job stays in the system until all the child jobs complete.
    • You can assign a rule to a connector that sends the child jobs through a different branch of the workflow that processed the parent job.
  • Create as child job is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
