An overview of Jobs toolset

Available with Workflow Manager license.

The Workflow Manager Jobs toolset provides tools that allow you to get job-specific information that can be used for other data processing. With the tools in this toolbox, you can create jobs, retrieve job version, job's data workspace, and get job area of interest.

ToolDescription
Create New Jobs

You can create one or more jobs of the selected job type and assign the jobs to a user or a user group. The created jobs can be given a priority and assigned polygon or point location of interest (LOI).

Get Job AOI
