Sort job is a default Switch app that offers various schemes for sorting incoming jobs across its outgoing connections depending on metadata associated with the jobs.
For each job the tool determines the value of the specified metadata field and compares this value with the names of the outgoing connections. If a match is found, the job is moved along that connection. Otherwise the job is moved along the outgoing data error connection, or if there is no such connection, it is moved to the problem jobs folder.
Note: This flow element has become redundant and should only be used for maintenance reasons. Sorting jobs can be done (much faster and easier) by defining a condition with variables on a connection. Refer to Defining a condition with variables in the Switch Reference Guide.
