4 Cloud Job Templates

SquidNet provides an interface for submitting jobs from the command line at the user’s workstation. Submitting jobs is just a matter of knowing the available options for a specific application. Use the “ccl –templateList” command to list applications that are supported from the command line.

List supported command line applications:

ccl --templateList

To list the options for a specific application, just specify the application name:

Example:
ccl --templateShow maya

Note

You can find the “ccl” executeable in the Cloud User Interface installation folder.
