    Code Block
    import qb
    # a job can have several callbacks, so they are stored in a list
    callbacks = []
    # each callback is a Qube Callback object.  Callback objects (like like 
    # all Qube objects in the Python API) are dictionaries at the end end 
    # of the day, so we'll define a blank dict.
    cb = {}
    cb['language'] = 'qube'                  # requires the "qube" supervisor_language_flag be enabled
    cb['triggers'] = 'timeout-work-self-*'   # this is the trigger for which we'll be watching - a timeout event on any of our work (agenda) items
    cb['code']     = 'fail-work-self'        # this is the thing we will do when the trigger fires - fail the work item that triggered the event
    # append all individually created callbacks to the callback list
    # now create a basic job object
    j = {}
    j['name'] = 'agenda timeout test - 30 second timeout (+/- 15 seconds)'
    j['agendatimeout'] = 30                  # number of seconds before timeout is triggered - this can be edited after submission in Qube 6.6+
    j['prototype'] = 'cmdrange'
    j['package'] = {'cmdline':'qbping -sleep QB_FRAME_NUMBER','range':'1-100'}  # 'qbping -sleep X' is a cross-platform method of sleeping
    j['callbacks'] = callbacks               # use our previously created callbacks list
    j['agenda'] = qb.genframes(j['package']['range'])  # don't forget to generate frames.
    # finally, submit the job.
    submitted = qb.submit(j)
    for s in submitted:
    	print ('submitted job %d' % s.get("id"))

    If "qbping" is not in your system PATH env var, then you may have to specify the full path to it. qbping lives in $QBDIR/bin.
