Create a Job Profile

Create a job profile, a customized shortcut for submitting a job.

If you submit multiple jobs to the same application with the same arguments, it makes sense for you to create a job profile that has these arguments pre-populated for you - streamlining the process of job submission.

  1. Click the Jobs tab located in the upper left-hand of the page.
    A list of applications are displayed at the top of the Job Monitoring page.

    A job submission form is displayed.
