Defect/Enhancement Number
1. For Jobs that do not start, an internal (non configurable) alert JobStartFailure will fire.

2. For Jobs that fail after starting: 

JOB > EDIT > Completion Actions and Alerts:
  • Email alerts can be fired as an action after Job has completed based on its exit code definition. 
  • Email alerts can be fired when Job execution time exceeds x-time: 
On Alert perform action: email actions (or another Job)
Default_Task_Action should be used, which has been specially designed to be used with OEM Jobs.

3. If only an ALERT is specifically required, then the 'fathom -firealert' cmd line functionality can be called from within the Job itself.
