CA Automic Workload Automation - Design

( Duration: 5 Days )

This CA Automic Workload Automation - Design training course teaches how to handle rudimentary objects and begin using them to leverage for your automation needs.

By attending CA Automic Workload Automation - Design workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Define the basic concepts and terminology of CA Automic Workload Automation.
  • Define the technical fundamentals of CA Automic Workload Automation.
  • Identity the key features of the Automic Web Interface (AWI).
  • Describe the core objects in the ONE Automation model.
  • Identify other capabilities such as dependencies and preconditions.
  • Describe the fundamentals of Operations Management.
  • Define miscellaneous concepts such as perspectives and analytics.
  • Explain how authorization works in object execution.
  • Create and execute Jobs to interact with operating systems or application programs.
  • Create Workflows to execute multiple Jobs sequentially or simultaneously.
  • Create Notifications and PromptSets to notify users or prompt users for input.
  • Create Calendars to determine the days to be considered as start conditions for the execution of tasks.
  • Configure tasks to execute periodically or once at a specific time.
  • Create and execute FileTransfer objects to exchange files between different servers or computers.
  • Create and execute Event objects to check certain conditions and trigger actions.
  • Describe the Automation Engine (AE) objects that support dynamic task execution.

The CA Automic Workload Automation - Design class is ideal for:

  • All new users of the Automic Web Interface (AWI) for AWA, ARA, or ASO
  • Automic developers/designers - those whose jobs include creating the Workflows to automate your applications, databases, and operating systems
  • Administrators and operators who may need to troubleshoot certain job problems
