Job Step Configuration Window in JobConfig for JetTrac PDFJob:


When setting up a job step using JTPDFJob in JobConfig the only line of the config you need to worry about is the first, the Config file. This field should be filled with the fully qualified path to the Config file for JTPDFJob. Eg: C:\JetTrac\…\config.ini
In JobConfig, file paths entered should not be in quotes.

As with all modules, there is a dropdown to select whether or not the job should stop completely if this step fails. If you select Yes, any error will terminate the job process and write to the log file what happened, if no, then the job will try to continue anyways. However if any steps further down the line rely on the output of a job set to not stop on error, they may not work properly.

For more specifics go to the JetTrac BYODJobConfig page.
