AutoSys R4 has a variety of command line tools. Example: jil (UNIX) and jil.exe (Win32) let you insert/update/delete box and job definitions using a script.

Is there an equivalent command line tool for jobprofiles.exe? I searched hard on Google and found nothing. Oddly, all the FAQs I see avoid any discussion of job profiles. Why is this?

Currently, there is no way (as a regular user) to dump an entire jobprofile. This would be useful for many reasons, including comparison to other jobprofiles, e.g., PROD vs UAT.

FYI: AutoSys R4 job profiles allow you to set certain environment variables when your process runs. Example: MY_CONFIG_VAR=1234
