Job Output Parameters

Jobs can return output parameters. You define output parameters in an external set. When running the job, a table is used to represent the external set. This table can either be a table in memory, a user-defined table, or a table defined in the Definer. Each column of this table corresponds to one parameter that is returned by the job.

When a job is started, this output parameter set is empty. The output set can be used as if it were a database table throughout the job.

The contents of the output parameter set are only returned if the batch job is started from the RunJob or <method name> method of the BatchRunner component. When started from a Batch Runner item in USoft Binder or from the ActionStartJob() method no output is returned.
