About values required to schedule a job

To run a job, you must first provide required values for the Create a Job Instance wizard. Some required values, such as a job name and label, are required for all jobs. Other required values are specific to a particular job template.

For more information about values that are required to create a job with the wizard, see Schedule a job.

For information about values that are required for a specific job template, see the documentation for that predefined job template.

The following table shows the values that are required for all jobs.
