Executes geoprocessing tools from your workflows. Once layers are added to the map, the Add Data button on the Workflow Manager toolbar will take you directly to the version defined for the job or the default version for the selected data workspace.
Job Tracking for ArcGIS (JTX) Whitepaper
ArcMap opens with a blank document. If there isn’t an ArcMap session open, Workflow Manager will open a new one. You can still choose to attach this as a text file using the Workflow Manager tools.
With this argument configured, the task assistant workflow is added to the job history by default. When creating a child job, the start date, due date, data workspace, and priority are copied from the parent job, while the job assignment is copied from the job type’s default properties if a value is not specified in the step arguments. For example, you can execute a geoprocessing service or any other web service as a workflow step.
The protection level of the version is specified by one of the following arguments: The step supports the traditional data workspace and the feature service data workspace. At the heart of Job Tracking for ArcGIS JTX is a database that tracks the progress of these job assignments and reports information to managers on status and performance, without slowing the production process. The application can also be set to automatically send e-mail notifications at points in the process defined by the user.
ReassignJob Reassigns the job. VersionAccessor Scope. This page has been accessed 1, times. Retrieves the value of the extended property or token passed, which is the return code for the next path in the workflow. ArcMap is opened using the map document defined. ReturnValue Retrieves the value of the extended property or token passed, which is the return code for the next path in the workflow.
This gives you the ability to choose only some extended properties configured on the job type to be displayed in the pop-up. Wait for ArcMap to close suspend Workflow Manager.
This means that the user cannot interact with the Workflow Manager application while working in ArcMap. UpdateExtentFeatureClass Updates a feature class with job information to provide visual status.
The Launch ArcMap step argument editor and the step type Execution tab are shown with the default behavior configured. Access the capabilities of JTX through an easy-to-use Web application on the desktop or in the field server version only. Organize, standardize, and streamline project workflows.
The software guides users through the job steps and automatically brings up the appropriate applications and datasets for each task with supporting information about what is to be done.

If you choose to store the map documents in an alternative location, Workflow Manager will not save the map documents in the database but will save them to that location for future use. CreateVersion Creates the version for the job.
With the eari behavior, the map is panned to the job’s AOI and zoomed by a factor of 1 to the shape’s geometry. The DesktopSteps library contains steps that jtd be executed only from the desktop because of the pop-up user interfaces.
CreateJob Creates a child job based on the arguments. The layers that are not from the data workspace are displayed with a broken data source. Layers are resourced to the job’s version based on the feature class’s short name.
If you choose to use this option, Workflow Manager will load the map document or template configured for the argument. Executes a geoprocessing tool, model, or script without displaying the geoprocessing dialog box.
Do not change any connection information. Fsri layers are not repointed in the map opened by Workflow Manager. All layers from the data workspace will be repointed irrespective of whether they are selected for repoint in the job type properties or not. All properties selected honor the properties set on the job type, such as visible, editable, and so on.
Each task in the workflow is described, including data and software to be used. Seamlessly integrate your GIS and other business applications.
SetVersion Sets the job’s version to a named version. Improve user productivity by automating multiuser tasks and reducing repetitive setup procedures. The LaunchArcMap step has many optional parameters available, allowing you to customize its execution for your needs without writing code.

To set multiple extended properties values at once separate each entry by a semicolon: VersionExists Checks to see if the job already has a geodatabase version.
EditExtendedProperties Displays the job’s extended properties as a pop-up form to allow the user to enter the required properties. In this case, since no map exists, there are no layers to resource. Depending on their role in the organization, authorized users can create a job, assign it, work on it, and check its progress. Executes a URL esrj displaying a browser to show the response.
Centralize, update, access, and maintain consistency for all job-related information across your organization. Toolbox Path explicit path to the wsri file: If there jts no step argument, the job version will be reset to the original version.
