Tidal Mass Updates

I have a situation where there are 300+ Tidal jobs defined to run on a particular agent/adapter.  I need to move 200 of them to a different agent/adapter.  Is there an easy way to do this without having to open each job up one at a time?

 

Thanks in advance.

You can also make use of the SACMD utility which allows for batch processing (mass updates).

 

Step 1.

The command can be as simple as: modrule -i job_ID -h agent_name

 

Step 2.

Insert the command above into a text file, and insert additional command lines as needed for each job ID

 

Step 3.

Now to run the batch file, type: sacmd file filepath_of_text file

 

Step 4.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the popcorn!!!

 

Best,

Hey Bruce

 

There is no native way using the client to change that many jobs to a different agent unless those jobs were inheriting the agent from a parent group.

Thank you so much, Derrick.  That worked perfectly.

If you have the 6.3 transport utility, you could export all the definitions, update the agent and re-import the updated XML, no?

That sounds doable.  I'm going to look into that further.


Thanks,
