Workload Orchestrator jobs allow scheduling of events and tasks for Workload Orchestrator-enabled devices. The jobs tab on the navigation panel will let you declare a job, bind it with several device tags, and add commands to the job. Workload Orchestrator jobs enable batch processing, which means execution of events and commands against groups of similar devices.

Example of a Workload Orchestrator Job: Restart a group of devices every morning at 12:00 a.m.
