Child 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 single job or a child job. A control file is used only if the Child 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.

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

In 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") 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 information center for more information about control file syntax.
