How do I pause/delay a job for 1 minute in a workflow before proceeding to the next job?
I tried the WAIT script but it seems to delay the generation of the job and not just pause/delay.
what version are you using? If v9 and above, you can add a Pre-condition to the task.
You could also add a Time Event to sleep for 1 minute before completing.
is what I normally do
I see where your going with this. I am new to AUTOMIC, where would I execute the PING 6000. In my job as a precondition? I appreciate your patience and assistance.
What would I enter in the pre-condition?
I successfully created a time event! Thanks to all for your assistance.
no prob. glad we could provide multiple possibilities.
The reason that :WAIT does not work is because Automic scripting is process before JCL script. You can use "sleep" JCL to accomplish this task, or use :WAIT with the "generate at run-time" box checked.
