Historical Jobs

Historical Jobs


Overview


Historical Jobs is an Enterprise Feature that allows users, through their task history, to view exactly how a job was set up at the time of running.

To begin, browse to the Task History via the main Project Menu.


As illustrated above, previously-run tasks will be listed in the Task History. Each of the jobs used in these tasks is recorded exactly as they were at the time of running. This includes the jobs exact layout (including notes) along with component properties and their configurations.

To view a task's job, click the tape icon to the right of the job.
 

Features


For the sake of an example, we will check the Historical Jobs for the failed task (ID 142). Below we can see the Historical Jobs panel with a list of jobs on the left and the respective canvas on the right. Note that in spite of this task including a Transformation job (visible in the bottom-right of the canvas as a Run Transformation component) it does not appear in the list of jobs. This is because an error had been encountered and thus the Transformation job never actually ran in this task.



Shared Jobs


It should be noted that Historical Jobs work in the same manner with Shared Jobs. When a Shared Job is run as part of a task, it will appear in the Historical Jobs view like any other component would. The only difference is that the jobs bundled into the Shared Job are given the <PackageName>,<SharedJobName>, prefix to show that those jobs are within the Shared Job in question.
