FAQ: Is it possible to start a job outside of versiondog?

Yes, it is possible to start a job outside of versiondog.


  • The job needs to be present in the Job configuration.
  • You need the 32-digit job ID.

For more information, see FAQ: Where do I find a 32 character job ID (and how can I copy it into a clipboard)?

Proceed as follows to start the job once from outside versiondog:

  1. Create an XML file with the following content:
	<Root FuncId="8">
	<JobID>{The Job ID with exactly 32 characters}</JobID >
  1. Place the XML file on the versiondog server in the directory ..\\vdServerArchive\VD$A\Data\ToDos\External.

The job will be executed once. After that, the XML file is deleted by versiondog.
