Job Monitors can be used to send notifications beyond just completed or failed. They can be attached to both Robot SCHEDULE and Robot SCHEDULE Enterprise jobs.
To add a monitor, right click on your job, and select properties. Then select the job monitors tab.
Notifications can be sent for 3 reasons - a job overruns, it underuns, or does not start by a certain time. Check the box to add the monitor.
There are 3 places warning messages can be sent.
- The job's message queue. That way a product like Robot CONSOLE can pick it up.
- Send an email using a Robot ALERT device. The device is specified under the control tab.
- Send a message to the network status center if this system is a node for Robot NETWORK.
Overrun and late start monitors can also terminate the job when the message is sent.
