Default properties

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

Default properties allow administrators to seed the jobs with consistent properties by job type, and each job thereafter will have default values for certain attributes. For example, you can seed the job description so that it is consistent throughout all the jobs of this type. Another example could be setting the job duration, as it's possible that all jobs of a certain type will take two weeks to complete. In this case, upon creation, the job's due date would be set to two weeks after the current date.

The following properties can have default values:

How to configure default properties

  1. Open Administrator and connect to your Workflow Manager database.
  2. In Workflow Manager Administrator, navigate to the JobTypes folder under Job Components.
  3. Right-click the folder and click Add Job Type.
  4. The Job Type Properties dialog box appears.

  5. Click the Default Properties tab on the Job Types dialog box and enter the properties as desired.

    If the check box next to Start Date or Due Date is not checked, this value will not be used.

    Predefine some job properties by setting them as the default properties of the job type.
