Autosys - cleaning alerts thru command line

Hello- I am currently researching on an autosys command that can be invoked via command line that can clean-up alerts.

The reason I ask is because we have jobs that activate on a daily basis. The job polls whether it needs to run or not (via filewatcher or some database check). If the job isn't supposed to run yet (either the file is not there, or the flag on the base says it's not yet that job's time to run), the job returns a failure. This failure in turn sends an ALERT. These ALERTS are low and we expect them to fail, however, it is such a tedious job to clean up all of the ALERTS in the morning.

Right now, we clean up the ALERTS manually thru the Autosys client application (windows based) and we have to do it one by one.

I have been researching and reading thru the web for this, but can't find anything. Have any of you encountered this need? If you have any idea on how to clean up ALERTS via command line, can you help me out?

Thanks in advance.

lpq(1)							      General Commands Manual							    lpq(1)

       lpq - spool queue examination program

       lpq [ options ] [ job #...  ] [ user...	]

       The  command  examines  the  spooling  area used by for printing files on the printer, and reports the status of jobs.  The command invoked
       without any arguments reports on any jobs currently in the default queue.

       When jobs are being printed, reports the queue as being ``active''.  For each job submitted, reports the user's name, current rank  in  the
       queue,  the names of files comprising the job, the job identifier and the total size in bytes.  The job identifier is a number which may be
       supplied to to remove a specific job.

       Job ordering is determined by the FIFO (First In, First Out) algorithm used to scan the spooling  directory.   When  the  queue	is  empty,
       reports that there are ``no entries''.

       File  names  may  be unavailable for some jobs, for example, if the command is used without specifying a file name, or if is used in a pipe
       line.  If file names are unavailable, the file name reported by is ``standard input''.

       job #...    Causes to report on only the job number(s) specified.

       user...	   Causes to report on only the jobs for the specified user(s).

       +n   Scan and display the spool queue until the queue is empty.	The queue is scanned every n seconds, if  no  argument	is  specified  the
	    queue is scanned every 30 seconds.

       -l   Display the status of each job on more than one line if necessary.	If this option is not used, the status of each job is displayed on
	    one line.

	    Report the status of the spool queue for the printer specified.  If this option is not used, the spool  queue  displayed  is  the  one
	    defined by the PRINTER environment variable.  If a queue is not defined by the PRINTER environment variable, the spool queue displayed
	    is for the printer named ``lp'' in the file.

       The displayed status of the spool queue may not always be the current status.  This is because jobs may be completed after  the	queue  has
       been examined, but before the status has been displayed.

Error Messages
       Two of the most common error messages from are:

       Warning: no daemon present (R)
       A daemon is not available for the specified printer.  Refer to the command to find out how to restart the printer daemon.

       unknown printer (R)
       The printer specified as an argument to the -P option, doesn't have an entry in the file.

       For manipulating the screen for repeated display

       To determine printer characteristics

       The spooling directory, as determined from printcap

       Control files specifying jobs

       The lock file to obtain the currently active job
