Creating Custom Job Steps

If there is no system step that does what you need to do, a developer must develop a custom job step. The developer first writes a task-oriented or chunk-oriented CommonJS script module or a legacy pipeline to describe what the step does. The developer includes the module or pipeline in a cartridge along with a JSON or XML file that describes the step, and then uploads the cartridge to the site. The custom steps are then available to the administrator creating jobs. The topics in this section are for developers.
