Job priority and queue hopping

When you set up a job for queue hopping, you can optionally specify the priority for the job in the new queue. If you don't specify a new priority, the job keeps the priority number from its submission queue. If you use different guidelines for choosing the values for priority between the two queues, make sure to specify a new priority value for the job in the destination queue.

For example, say that in your submission queue you use a value of 20 for urgent jobs, 10 for ordinary jobs, and 0 for low-priority jobs. And say that in your destination queue, you use a value of 10 for urgent jobs, 0 for ordinary jobs, and -10 for low-priority jobs. When an ordinary job with a priority of 10 hops from your submission queue to the destination queue, it is scheduled with the destination queue's urgent jobs if you don't provide a new priority value.

For information about setting the job's priority within the submission queue, see Setting the priority of a job.

In the console, set the priority of the job within the destination queue with the setting Queue hopping, Job priority. For details about finding this setting, see the procedure in the topic Setting up queue hopping.

Set the priority of the job within the destination queue directly in your JSON job specification with the field priority, under hopDestinations.
