As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

We have several hundred users running deferred jobs that return either Excel or PPTs. Is there anyway to determine how many jobs are queued in front of them when they submit a run? Would really help manage expectations. Thanks

A)Are you really running 7.6?
B)Isn't the whole point of Deffered jobs Fire and Forget?

C) Why would you want to know how many job they submit and are in queue ?

No, we're on 8.2. Probably need to update that Smiler

I'm trying to find some way to manage expectations. If there are 20 jobs in front of yours it's going to be a while.

According to me it's :

I personally think that you are loosing your time trying to manage this.
I understand that people expect to have everything instantly, but if you already run the report as deferred, it's because you don't expect to have it fast (or due to volume of data) you agree to wait.
I'm pretty sure that you can find a better thing to do to make your users happy :-)
