Helix Control-M Self Conversion

Control-M Self Conversion enables you to develop automatic conversions from any scheduler or business application to Control-M data. Use Self Conversion when your data source is not supported by the Conversion Tool.

To use Self Conversion, you need to know how to write Groovy scripts and how to use an API.

To convert your workflows to Control-M, you must do the following:

  1. Extract the source data to XML, using your own means.

  2. BMC recommends that you convert a few sample jobs/flows manually and load them into Control-M as described in Loading Job Definitions from a File, and ensure that they run as expected to confirm the required conversion outcome.

  3. Install the Self Conversion, as described in Setting Up Self Conversion .

  4. Convert extracted data to Control-M, as described in Converting Extracted Data to Control-M.
