Passing a command shell parameter to another shell

Good afternoon, i need your help pls

I want to write a new script that start running as soon as a previus one finish via Autosys (it should be implemented via Autosys too to validate the exsitance and the successful transfered file to a remote server

Whenever the file arrives to the path remote server it
is inmediately processed and moved away,so ive got to list out the name of the file before being moved

The previus script command launched via autosys is sthg like that:

/file/shells/comand.sh jobname (jobname in Autosys which creates the flle and then ftped to the remote server )

as soon the previous command finishes i want mynew script will be triggered to chek out if it was transmitted:

Code:
/file/shells/mycommand.sh jobname #job name is the parameter

The problem ive got is I dont know how to tell mycommad.sh to get the jobname parameter because it does not longer exist and because is launched via Autosys OR how to pass the parameter for the finished command to my new script?

This is the logic so far:

Code:
[case $jobname in 
    invoice)   
                Proccess() 
                verifyftp() 
 
    trafficPrepaid)
                 Process()
                 verifyftp()

     trafficPospaid)
                   process()
                   verifyftp()

      *)
                    do sth

esac

Id appreciate your help in advanced

Have you tried looking at the "export" command? Not sure if it might help here.
