Determines the mode to use when the step acquires a resource. If set to none, then the default behavior for the step applies. If set to job, then the resource will be retained for the exclusive use of this job. If set to step, then the resource will be retained for the exclusive use of this step and procedure it may call. If set to call, then the resource will be retained for the exclusive use of all steps within the current procedure call.

notificationTemplate

String

Email notification template for manual step.

parallel

parentPath

String

Path to the parent job step. If a parent step is not specified, the current job step is used.

postProcessor

String

This command runs in parallel with the main command for the step; it analyzes the log for the step and collects diagnostic information.

precondition

String

A fixed text or text embedding property references that is evaluated into a logical TRUE or FALSE. An empty string, a 0 or false is interpreted as FALSE. Any other result string is interpreted as TRUE.

projectName

String

The name of the project for procedureName.

releaseExclusive

Boolean

True means the resource acquired for this step will be no longer be retained for the exclusive use of this job when this step completes.

releaseMode

String

Determines the mode to use when the step releases its resource. If set to none, the default behavior applies. If set to release, then the resource will be available for use by any job. If set to releaseToJob, then the resource will be available for use by any step in this job.
