When starting a job with the "Job/Task Control" task, the job is started without conditions.

This sounds like a bug.

Best regards,
René

I think it is the way you look at it.
You could also put conditions to the task telling to run the job.

But, you might be right...

You mean, I could instead of using the "Job/Task Control" task to start a new job, instead use a condition to do this?

Perhaps you are not selecting Run Job->With Conditions if you run it manually?

No no, I can see I haven't made myself clear. Sorry

I have added a "Job/Task Control" task to Job A, which supposedly was to start Job B.
However - it starts Job B without conditions, which means that all the conditions in Job B are ignored.

What I meant was that you can re-use the condition used on your job for your run job task.

Sorry Erik, I tried, but I am not sure I can decipher your point. :-)
In the above example with Job A and Job B I don't use conditions to start/iterate jobs, so there is nothing to "re-use". I just have a "Job/Task Control"-task to start Job B.

I apologize for being dense.

Ohh, so conditions to tasks in Job B are not working when you run it from a task in job A?

If that's the case, it's not the way it should be.
