Job administration and processing can be controlled through the OneFS WebUI, the CLI, or the RESTful platform API. For each of these control methods, additional administrative security can be configured using Role Based Access Control (RBAC). By restricting access through the ISI_PRIV_JOB_ENGINE privilege, it is possible to allow only a subset of cluster administrators to configure, manage, and run Job Engine functionality, to meet the security requirements of a particular environment.
When a job is started through any of these job control methods, it can also be paused canceled.

Once paused, the job can easily be resumed, and processing continues from where the job left off when it was paused. Continued processing is managed through the check-pointing system, as described in Job Engine checkpoints.
