Combining activities as a reconciliation job
You can create and execute reconciliation activities only as part of a job, which can contain multiple activities and performs them in the sequence that you specify. When you remove an activity from a job, it is deleted and cannot be used in other jobs. You can run a job:
- With schedules defined for the job
- From another job
- From a BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB) API program
- From BMC Remedy Action Request System (BMC Remedy AR System) workflow
When you use BMC Remedy AR System workflow or a BMC Atrium CMDB API program to execute a job, you can dynamically specify datasets and qualifications for the job to operate against, replacing those defined for the job. This enables you to reuse reconciliation definitions with multiple overlay datasets and with subsets of data.
