An object package is a type of object that acts as a container for
subobjects or components. They can only be created or edited in the CMC, and
can contain any object type that can be scheduled. To add objects to an object
package, a user with the necessary access rights must copy the object and paste
it into the object package in the CMC. Objects in an object package are then
distinct from the object they were copied from and are instead components of
the object package. When you schedule an object package, instances are created
for each component, allowing you to schedule several objects simultaneously.
You cannot schedule a component of an object package on its own.
Scheduling an object package is slightly different from scheduling an
individual object, because some scheduling options must be set on an object
package level. These scheduling options are recurrence, destinations, events,
and server group settings. Other scheduling options are set for each component
of the object package. These scheduling options are notification, database
logon settings, filters (if applicable), format, print settings, and
parameters, prompts, or arguments (if applicable).
