Adding jobs

A Job file has to be a powershell script file, this file type has the extension .ps1.
First, you need to give your Job a name, for instance in the format YourCompanyName.SomeJobName.ps1. That means now, our job is an empty file with the name “coolOrange.Test.ps1”.
Every Job file has to be placed in “C:\ProgramData\coolOrange\powerJobs\Jobs”

A Module file has to be a powershell script module file, this file type has the extension .psm1. Give your Module a name, for instance “TestJobHelper.psm1”.
Every Module file has to be placed in “C:\ProgramData\coolOrange\powerJobs\Modules”
You can access this directory using the powerJobs Processor Configuration shortcut from the desktop or from the Start Menu.

If you add a job while the powerJobs Processor is running you have to restart it.
If you make changes to a script while the powerJobs Processor is running, the changes will be recognised the next time the job is executed.

Start the powerJobs Processor. If it is already running restart it.
Open the “Job Types” dialogue, which can be found under “Administration” → “Job Types”. Scroll through the list and look for your job.
If there is an entry for your job, but it is not checked, the JobProcessor most likely cannot find your Job file (.ps1 file).
Check if the file exists an that the configuration does not contain spelling errors.

If you want to test a new job, but you don't want to wait 10 min till the JobProcessor begins to work,
just click in the dialog File → Pause and then File → Resume. Now all your queued jobs will start.
