Shell Step holds up Job after launching external app

Question asked by Rene Desaulniers on Apr 27, 2019

I have a Job that includes a SHELL step which launches an external application, to be used by the next step in the Job.(Runtime DB server will read a DB file and write result to file)


However, once the Shell launches the external app, the JOB sits idle. (until I manually close the external app, at which point, the Job continues to next Step.)


I need for the Shell to launch the app and allow the Job to move on to next step. Once the next step is complete, I run another Shell to unload the external app, and repeat this loop for next db file.


Any help is welcomed and appreciated.  Cheers.
