Job Control Panel

The Argent Job Scheduler has a GUI interface called the Job Control Panel. Most customers use this interface to manage their jobs.

It includes the Quick Access Toolbar for commonly accessed areas of the Job Control Panel, File drop down menus, a Status Bar and most importantly, a view of the current schedule of jobs.

The Quick Access Toolbar offers the following:

  • Exit Product – This close the GUI Job Control Panel while the service remains running in the background.

  • Refresh All – This refresh the GUI with the latest information from the database backend.

  • Submit Job to Schedule – This submits the highlighted Job Template to the schedule.

  • Connect to Queue Engine – This establishes the connection to remote Queue Engine.
