Application Specialist needs a point in the right direction...
We have a new system at work, and my group has a server that will be receiving inbound print jobs after an outside firm does some processing. When the jobs come in we typically only see the name blip in a folder as the job comes back in then it prints. Unless of course, the user selects wrong type of end device. We have no control over the source selection, so we will need to clear out any stuck jobs as part of our on call duties.
I would like to prototype a web front end that we can provide to our help desk/semi automate so we can limit the 3am calls to real issues. Our sister team has a test web server I can develope on.
If the job comes in and sits on the server for longer than 5 min, create a folder with today's date and take the long job and put it in the folder. At 7 am, email my team with any job failures taken care of by the auto process for followup. At the same time poll every 10 seconds and update a webpage the helpdesk can watch. If a call comes in from user the helpdesk should see the stuck job, and can select it for deletion from this webpage. Will need controls to do so, on the back end create a folder with today's date labeled helpdesk deletions we can moniter. My team should be the only ones who can permanantly delete a job.
