Re: [Condor-users] GetEnv issue when submitting a Job throughwebservices

Did I answer this earlier? condor_submit, when it sees GetEnv=True in a .sub file, does a bunch of work grabbing the environment and stuffing it into an attribute named Env. If you want to add to the environment your job will run in you need to set your own Env attribute, it won't be done automatically for you. So, make a name:Env type:String value:a=b;c=d etc attribute for your job. Oh, and be sure to use the right separator, ";" is just a guess on my part.

Does this do the job ? I seem to recall that there were previous discussions of the env-plus-webservice problem in the group, try searching for it.

I have been trying to submit a job through webservices but its failing as it not able to get the environemnt variables properly. Anyidea on how to do it? I even tried to set the "GetEnv" = true in the ClassAd of the job, but again the same result.
