    I have a request to automate Payroll Processing because we have 11 affiliates and it takes time to run all of the jobs.  The kicker is they still want separate output for each affiliate and do not want it ran in bulk - plus the output in pdf form.  I have some thoughts on how to do this but wanted to see if anyone had a template that they use or have some experience with this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Julia

    I suppose you could develop an IPA flow to do AGS calls to the PR programs, with different job names for each affiliate so the reports/files will be separate. You could kick off /servlet/Report?action=PDF from a webrun node to convert the reports to PDF. Don't the users want to run the critical reports (PR160 for instance) in report mode first, do a sanity check before running in update mode?

    Yes - they have groups of jobs they want to run in report mode and then groups of jobs they want review and then another group of jobs to run for update - so I was thinking about multiple jobs for each of those phases.  This is good information.  Thank you.  Julia

    Intellias has a product for Lawson to automate payroll processing that they've had for at least 10 years.

    Hi Julia,  we went thru this same process several years ago and needed to find a way to autoschedule jobs and IPA flows.  As Ragu mentioned we developed an IPA flow

    that submits the jobs and/or IPA process flows. It does get quite involved when you need to have job dependencies, check on cancellations etc.

    Our Finance folks (Payroll, A/P, etc) swear by it, I'm quite sure. They've used it to automate a ton of processes.

    I have clients who consider any outage of the intellias products to be a complete production down situation.

    The product has been around for right around 15-16 years, and I have yet to hear a client who has it choose to give it up.
