Creating, renaming and deleting jobs

Creating a Job

There are various methods to create a job, accessible via the "+JOB" button

Using Preset Jobs

Pre-defined jobs are carefully crafted by Pydio Team to be easy to use, with predefined parameters and nice labelling of actions, queries and filters to make the diagram as simple as possible.

The most common approach to create your own job is to start from a Preset and modify it to suit your need.

You can see the whole list of Preset Jobs here.

Creating an empty Job

If you want to create job from scratch, you will be guided through the steps required to build the most basically functional job:

  • Set up a label for the job
  • Choose a trigger type (manual, scheduled, event-based)
  • Choose a first-step action

Creating Job from JSON

Using the JSON representation of a job can be a handy way to import a job from another instance, or for a job provided to you by our support team. Just paste the JSON and hit Save to continue to job edition.

Renaming an existing Job

To rename a job, select it in the list and switch the workflow to Edit mode using the Pencil button.

Then edit the label and hit Save.

Deleting a Job

Jobs can be simply deleted with the DELETE button.

Exporting Job in JSON format

In Edit Mode, you can display the current JSON representation of your job.

By copy/pasting and saving this JSON to a file, it provides a flexible way to backup your jobs for further usage or exporting to another Cells instance.
