About scheduling a job
Scheduling a job to run a design gives a user more control over document creation than running a design immediately. For example, the user can configure flexible scheduling options, and specify a location and output format in which to save the file. Scheduled jobs run in the background, allowing users to perform other tasks, without waiting for the completion of the job.
If you run a very large design or document job, the job can fail. Information Console uses a document generation timeā€‘out period of 30 minutes, by default. If the document generation process takes longer than the time period specified, Information Console displays a time-out message. In such cases where a design generates a large document, schedule a job to run the design.
When performing basic and advanced job scheduling, the user does not need to set options in all available categories. The user can set options in some categories and ignore others as needed. The user can submit the job after setting options in any of the available categories.
This document describes tasks that can be performed by both regular users and administrators and clearly identifies any tasks that can only be performed by an administrator. For more information about user roles, see Managing Volumes and Users.
