[CLOSED] Launching a schedule or FEX from a SQL Server Job

I would like to launch a WebFOCUS Schedule or FEX from a SQL Server Job. Is there a command I can use to do this? The WebFocus process can only be complete once the SQL Server process ends. The SQL Server process runs on different days and sometimes different times each month - so the normal schedules would not work.

Not sure if there is a direct call, however in the past I have used a simple table to control this type of requirement. When your SQL server job is finished, update this table with an indicator. Have a schedule to run every nn minutes to check this table and run if there is a value there to indicate that the job should run, finally the scheduled job should update the table to remove the indicator.

thanks Alan. I will try this. It is unfortuate that there isn't a command that could be used to do the same thing. It seems like a lot of overhead to get this done.

I think you could use the ReportCaster web service to do this.

Alan, Would you be willing to share the .FEX file that exams the table and starts the schedule?

Using technique mentioned by Alan where you search for an indicator, search for "Alert" in documentation, that may help too to accomplish what you're looking for.
