User interface of the Jobs

The user interface for the Jobs shows all the Jobs with their current status, the Job name, the associated Job definition, the Worker, who is carrying out or has carried out the Job and the actions currently possible.

Open Job progress window Opens a popup window with the progress information for the Job.
Open Job log window Opens the Job-specific log.

The Jobs can be displayed and hidden according to their status by marking the filter of the same name.

If the time filter Today's jobs is used, only those Jobs are listed that occurred on the current day. This list is updated at regular intervals. The time filter All jobs displays all the messages again.

The following statuses can be displayed for the Jobs:

The data for the display are transferred as a Map. The API IJobAPI implements a method called getResultData() that initially returns a Map. The following Information to be displayed are to be attached to this Map.


In principle the method resultData.put() can process any objects. Since the transferred objects are converted into the JSON format, only simple objects such as List, Map and String should be used.

By means of a HTML file the look of the status indication is adjusted to customer-specific requirements (see jobStatusHtml).
