Jobs and Steps
The most basic Automation unit is the step. A step is the smallest possible building block of the automation script, and it answers two questions: What to run and where to run it? You cannot use steps on their own, but only as parts of larger Automation entities, such as jobs, for example.
A job is a defined task consisting of steps. The simplest automation script consists of a single job and, in turn, the simplest job consists of a single step.
