Agent environments and IBM i agent environments store certain information so that it can easily be reused when you're creating jobs. This information includes items such as the user account, password, default directory when a process starts, IBM i parameters for submitting the job, and any environment variables needed by the job when it runs. Create an agent environment for each agent or application.
To use a shared environment when scheduling a job:
Example: If the password or user changes, simply update the information in the agent environment (or IBMi agent environment) and every job that uses that environment will be updated automatically.
Note: Skybot Scheduler has been renamed to Automate Schedule and is now part of the Automate suite of products. The existing Skybot Scheduler features and functionality are the same; only the product name has changed.
