Jobs overview


The job page provides a comprehensive view of each job, including scheduling options, a list of outputs from the last run, and a detailed history of all runs.

Accessing the job page

From the data flow designer

In the data flow designer, once your data flow is ready, click the Run button. This action will either create a new job if it doesn't exist or initiate a run instance for an existing job. When job finishes working, you will see a notification and can access the job's result directly from the notification or by clicking the Job button on the toolbar.

Direct access

You can access existing jobs by navigating to the Jobs section from the Home Screen.

Note: You cannot create a new job directly from the Job page. Jobs are only created through the data flow designer.

Understanding the job page layout


Customize when and how often your job runs. This section allows you to configure recurring schedules or one-time executions.

Outputs of the last run

This area displays the results from the most recent execution of the job. Outputs can include reports, charts, or datasets. Click on an output to get a quick preview.

Tips for effective job management

Regularly check schedules. Ensure your jobs are running at the intended times.

Preview outputs frequently. Regular previews help in catching errors or anomalies early.

Review logs. In case of failures or unexpected results, logs are invaluable for diagnosing issues.

Update data flows as needed. Changes in data flows are reflected in subsequent job runs. Keep your flows updated for accurate results.
