I have a requirement that at a particular time a batch file should run, fetch a file from SFTP location and then perform QVD reloads that will sue the file. I would like to achieve the same by creating a Job A in the QMC that will run the batch file and get the file. On success or failure of Job A, Job B should create the QVD's then the next Job to reload teh dashboard. Note that on Success of A, B will run, on success of B, C will run. There is a scenario where I would like to force fail the job. Say we have not received the file and Job A should fail which will send out a email. Then there will be manual intervention to look at getting the files.
How do I make Job A fail which is a batch file execution, when the batch file did not get any file from SFTP?
You can have an alertmail inside your Qvw application that will send out an alertmail when the file has been updated with a value change. But there is no check that will "look" for a file to be fetched, all based on data being loaded. QMC acts on failures vs success, so that can´t be used in such scenario either.
Best would be if you implement a load of somekind inside the qvw that can trigger an alert mail, when the file is fetched.
