Multi Document Reload Task in Release 9.0?

In release 8.5 publisher we have a number of reload tasks the reload a series of documents. We are looking at the upgrade to release 9.0 and it is not obvious to me that a series of documents can be reloaded in the same task. Am I missing something?

Regards,

Multi Document Reload Task in Release 9.0?

It's true that things have changed in 9. There is a no longer a Job object that contains multiple tasks. This has been replaced by task chaining.

Task chaining is setup this way.

Document task "TaskA". Reloads document CustomerMaster.qvw. Triggers each day at 6:00 AM.

Document task "TaskB". Reloads document SalesReport.qvw. Triggered when "TaskB" completes.

Rob,

Thanks for the feedback. This does make modifying the job sequence alot more cumbersome. Also I guess there is no conversion of existing jobs... Is chaining really nothing more than setting task dependencies.

The PubUpgrade.exe tool will convert your existing Jobs into Task chains. It does it fairly good job. You do wind up with longer chains than necessary. For example, in 8.5 Reload and Distribute were two different tasks. These can both be done in a single task on 9. PubUpgrade will not combine when converting from an 8.5 job. You can "fix" this with a manual edit later.

Hi Rob.

Does PubUpgrade.exe only work on Publisher Enterprise installations?

Kind Regards,

Check the QV Server doc, but I believe it's applicable to Standard as well.
