For example, an IT administrator or developer can use JobServer to embed their Linux script into JobServer and then expose it as a user interface based web application for any business user to manually run, schedule, monitor and track. The administrator can easily customize and parameterize the job/tasklet to allow custom input parameters that the business user can pass in directly from the web GUI.
The latest release of JobServer allows you to turn any Linux or Windows script or command line program into a GUI application that be run and tracked by business users. What is also great about this is that the developer or IT administrator has full control over the scripts being run and can throttle capacity and disable/enable the scripts at any time. And they can track who has been running the scripts/jobs. All this with just a few clicks and some cut and past you can turn your scripts into GUI web applications!
