You have associated a trouble ticket number with your job through a custom property, but you do not want to have to modify the value of this property every time you run the job. Instead, you base an Execution Task on the job whenever you have a new ticket number to associate with the job.


After running the Execution Task, you can access the definitions of a job through the results of any specific job run and see the new values that you defined for overriding job properties. For more information, see Viewing the job definition of a job run.

For more information, see Modifying Execution Task definitions.
