Import Job Data

Available with Workflow Manager license.

Summary

Imports configuration and job information from a Workflow Manager repository to a destination repository. This tool is most useful for setting up a repository similar to an existing repository, disconnected repository replica creation, and changing synchronization.

Usage

  • The Repository Name parameter is the name of the Workflow Manager repository to which you will connect.

  • The Input JXL/Acknowledgement file is generated using the Export Job Data tool.

  • The Merge parameter allows you to append the contents of the input JXL file to the existing configuration in your database. If the Merge parameter is not checked, the existing contents of the specified repository will be deleted.

Syntax

ImportJobData_wmx (Input_File, Input_Merge, {Input_DatabasePath}, {Input_Repository_Name})
ParameterExplanationData Type
Input_File

The JXL file that contains the jobs and configuration elements generated using the Export Job Data tool.

File

Code sample

ImportJobData example 1 (stand-alone Python script)

Import the configuration, with job information, of a Workflow Manager repository, replacing the existing contents of the destination repository.

# Import arcpy module
import arcpy

# Check out any necessary licenses
arcpy.CheckOutExtension("JTX")

# Script arguments
Input_File = "C:\\Temp\\WMXRepository.jxl"
Input_Merge = "REPLACE"
Input_DatabasePath = "C:\\Program Files\\WMX\\Database\\wmx.jtc"
Input_Repository_Name = "WMXRepository"

# Process: Import Job Data
arcpy.ImportJobData_wmx(Input_File, Input_Merge, Input_DatabasePath, Input_Repository_Name)
ImportJobData example 2 (stand-alone Python script)

Import the configuration, with job information, of a Workflow Manager repository, merging the contents of the .jxl file with the existing contents of the destination repository.

# Import arcpy module
import arcpy

# Check out any necessary licenses
arcpy.CheckOutExtension("JTX")

# Script arguments
Input_File = "C:\\Temp\\WMXRepository.jxl"
Input_Merge = "COMBINE"
Input_DatabasePath = "C:\\Program Files\\WMX\\Database\\wmx.jtc"
Input_Repository_Name = "WMXRepository"

# Process: Import Job Data
arcpy.ImportJobData_wmx(Input_File, Input_Merge, Input_DatabasePath, Input_Repository_Name)
