       condor_qedit - modify job attributes


       condor_qedit [ -debug ] [ -n schedd-name ] [ -pool pool-name ] {cluster
       |  cluster.proc  |  owner  |  -constraint  constraint}   attribute-name
       attribute-value ...


       condor_qedit modifies job ClassAd attributes of queued Condor jobs. The
       jobs are specified either by cluster number, job ID,  owner,  or  by  a
       ClassAd  constraint  expression. The attribute-value may be any ClassAd
       expression. String expressions must be surrounded by double quotes.

       To  ensure  security  and  correctness,  condor_qedit  will  not  allow
       modification of the following ClassAd attributes:

          * Owner

          * ClusterId

          * ProcId

          * MyType

          * TargetType

          * JobStatus

       Since  JobStatusmay  not be changed with condor_qedit , use condor_hold
       to place a job in the hold state, and use condor_release to  release  a
       held job, instead of attempting to modify JobStatusdirectly.

       If  a  job  is currently running, modified attributes for that job will
       not  affect  the  job  until  it   restarts.   As   an   example,   for
       PeriodicRemoveto  affect  when  a currently running job will be removed
       from the queue, that job must first  be  evicted  from  a  machine  and
       returned to the queue. The same is true for other periodic expressions,
       such as PeriodicHoldand PeriodicRelease.



          Causes debugging information to be sent  to  stderr,  based  on  the
          value of the configuration variable TOOL_DEBUG

       -n schedd-name

          Modify job attributes in the queue of the specified schedd

       -pool pool-name

          Modify  job  attributes  in the queue of the schedd specified in the
          specified pool


       % condor_qedit -name -pool  249.0
       answer 42
       Set attribute "answer".
       % condor_qedit -name perdita 1849.0 In ’"myinput"’
       Set attribute "In".
       % condor_qedit jbasney NiceUser TRUE
       Set attribute "NiceUser".
       %  condor_qedit  -constraint  ’JobUniverse == 1’ Requirements ’(Arch ==
       "INTEL") && (OpSys ==  "SOLARIS26")  &&  (Disk  >=  ExecutableSize)  &&
       (VirtualMemory >= ImageSize)’
       Set attribute "Requirements".

General Remarks

       A job’s ClassAd attributes may be viewed with

         condor_q -long

Exit Status

       condor_qedit  will  exit  with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success,
       and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
