    We would like to manage outages using resources, but an issue for us is that you cannot force start a job when a resource isn't available.

     

    It's good that you cannot, but it would be great if there were some kind of override command that would allow a force start even though the resource isn't available.

     

    Issuing that command that says "Yes, I know the resource isn't available, but I need to test the system anyway, before I set the resource to available and open the flood gates for all my other jobs".

     

    The reason we really like using resources to manage outages, as opposed to global variables, is that then the condition field is really only reflecting true JOB conditions and not outage management tools.
