Working With Jobs

Jobs transfer files between source and destination folders, which are defined as Storage Profiles. A Storage Profile represents an endpoint and folder that can be used when creating additional jobs.

Creating Jobs

In order to create a job, you must have Signiant Server configured on both endpoints and created a route between your endpoints.

To create a job:

  1. In your Jet Account, click Jobs.
  2. Click the Add button to open the New Job page. The add button is in the lower right corner
  3. Enter a Job Name.
  4. Click Select Source.
  5. Enter a Storage Profile name for the source endpoint.
  6. Select an endpoint from the Endpoints list. The endpoints section is on the left side of the New Job page
  7. Specify a path to the source folder in the Storage Location area. You can browse or directly specify a path using the storage location list on the right side of the New Job page
  8. Click Select.
  9. Click Select Destination.
  10. Select an endpoint from the Endpoints list.
  11. Specify a path to the destination folder in the Storage Location area.
  12. Click Select.
  13. Click Create.

Once a transfer begins, the application will create a .jet.sys directory for transfer metadata and processing.
