This event script is intended to be used in combination with the powerJobs Settings Dialog to configure automatic queueing of jobs based on certain lifecycle transitions and filter conditions.
Requires powerJobs Processor
The SubmitJobsOnLifecycleTransition event script relies on the configuration from the Job Triggers section of the powerJobs Settings Dialog to work properly.
This requires minimum version of powerJobs Processor 23.0.1
The user performing the action must have the Vault Get Options permission to retrieve the trigger settings configured with the powerJobs Settings Dialog.
This script makes use of the following events:
UpdateFileStates event which is triggered when the lifecycle state of a File changes
UpdateItemStates event which is triggered when the lifecycle state of an Item changes
UpdateChangeOrderState event which is triggered when the lifecycle state of a Change Order changes
UpdateCustomEntityStates event which is triggered when the lifecycle state of a Custom Object changes
The script registers Post Event handlers for every above mentioned event and queues the configured job if an entity matches all of the following conditions:
The ‘update status’ operation was successful
One or more of the affected entities transitioned to a configured lifecycle state
All of the configured filters match for an entity
If the powerJobs Processor Sample.CreateDXF&STEPfromSheetmetal job is configured to be queued, additional checks are performed. The Vault environment must be configured correctly for the event script be able to determine the document type.
The script can be tested by performing the following steps:
Open the Vault Client, open the powerJobs Settings Dialog and navigate to the Job Triggers section of the dialog. Configure a job to be queued on a lifecycle transition.
Navigate to an entity of the selected type (e.g. file)
Change the Lifecycle State to the configured state
Open the Job Queue
The Job Queue contains a configured job for the changed file with the set description and priority
Out of the box the event script is enabled.
When the script is not used it can by disabled by moving it to the %PROGRAMDATA%\coolOrange\powerEvents\Events\Disabled folder.
