Import Job Data

Available with Workflow Manager license.

Summary

This tool allows you to import Workflow Manager configuration and job information found in a repository into a destination repository. This tool is most useful for setting up a repository similar to an existing repository, disconnected repository replica creation, and change synchronization.

Usage

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

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

  • By checking the Merge option you are appending the contents of the input JXL file to the existing configuration in your database. If the Merge option is not checked, the existing contents of the specified repository will be wiped out.

Syntax

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

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

File
Input_Merge

Choose whether contents of the destination workflow manager repository should be combined instead of being overwritten with the contents of the input configuration 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 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 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)
