Creating Grid backup jobs through a script

I am looking at how to consolidate various RMAN backups to be scheduled and managed through Grid. Currently we have a mixture of Grid, crontab and 3rd party schedules running RMAN jobs.

I am guessing that there must be a method of creating a grid job by using a script containing all the credentials, database name, backup type etc but I don't think I have ever come across any information around this.

Has anybody got any suggestions or even better an example.

Here's hoping
