Job values file

Specifies the full path and file name of a configuration file that is used to set property values. You can also select a step resource object as the value for the property instead of providing a path and filename. Using a step resource lets you change the specific file without editing all of the workflows that contain the step that uses the file.

The configuration file is a text file that contains property and value pairs for any job properties, including properties that can be used more than once in a workflow and have different values for each use. By defining rules to call the step to assign the values in this file to the job, you can set different values for the same or different job properties to be passed to the next step in the workflow.

Database name

Usage notes:

  • You can use both a configuration file and the list of property values in this step to change the values for a job. If a property is included in both the configuration file and in the list, the value in the list is used.
  • In the file, use Ricoh ProcessDirector database names for the properties. List each property and value on a separate line as, with no spaces before or after the equal sign (=). For example:


  • To set a value for a positional job property, specify the phase and step names in brackets following the property name.

    This example specifies a Linux copy command as the value of the External command job property for the RunExternalProgram step in the Prepare phase of a workflow:

    Job.External.Command[Prepare][RunExternalProgram]=cp ${getControlFileName()} /aiw/aiw1/samples/${Job.ID}.info.csv

  • Job values file is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
