Database property names for jobs that do not appear in the user interface

Some job properties do not appear in the user interface. These properties can be useful for writing external programs.

The Internal values column on values describes restrictions on property values. Some properties have specific internal values, so if you want to use them in Web services requests or set them using an overrides file, you must use one of those values.

In the Editable column:

  • Yes means that an authorized user can change the value after the job has been submitted.
  • No means that an authorized user cannot change the value.

In the Job ticket column:

  • Yes means that the property can be set from one or more values in the job ticket that is used to submit the job.
  • No means that the property cannot be set from values in the job ticket.
