We have Resource Groups that were established long ago, and someone created 20 or so Resources within those groups. Example, we have a Resource Group called PACKAGING and then resources under it, PACK1, PACK2, PACK3…
We are just now getting into using the scheduling functions better and I would like to inactivate these Resources since we cannot delete them.
What is the best way to do this?
There are active Jobs that have these Resources on the Operations, so if I inactivate the Resource, what happens to these Jobs?
Do I need to modify All Jobs to use the Default Resource in the Group PACK1, via a UDASH?
If I just inactivate all the Resources I don’t want, could I just do a Global Reschedule and the Jobs will see no Resource and default the operations to PACK1 or will this cause an “Invalid Resource” error. I have see than error in testing.
Any guidance appreciated, from someone who has set a Resource as Inactive.
