Job Fields and Details


When creating a job, there are several fields and details that can be provided to customise the behaviour of your job. These include:

Job Name

This is a unique label to identify your job, it can be changed at anytime without affecting the underlying tasks and scheduling.

Logging Level

The Logging Level refers to how detailed the success or failure logs will be after running a Job.

Level Details Types of Logs
Standard This setting will produce a smaller set of logs with only meaningful, notable messages being shown. Success/failure notifications, task status and progression messages.
Debug This setting will show all that standard shows with additional messages for lower level details that professionals may care about. Generated queries/statements, performance metrics, additional connection information.

Logging Batch Size

The Logging Batch Size determines the rate at which logs are submitted to the Data Governor Online API from the Agent. By default, the agent will submit logs in batches of 5. If there is a job which creates a large amount of logs (>100 pages worth) it’s advised that this value is increased so that less load is put on your tenant.

Increasing the batch size will slow down the rate at which realtime logging occurs in the job execution screen, however this does not slowdown the performance of the job execution itself.

Email Notifications Rule

The email notification rule can be used to configure job driven email notifications.

Currently Data Governor Online supports 3 different levels of email notifications.

Rule On Success On Failure
No Email No emails will be sent to the provided recipients. No emails will be sent to the provided recipients.
Notify on Success or Failure Emails will be sent to the provided recipients. No emails will be sent to the provided recipients.
Notify on Failure No emails will be sent to the provided recipients. Emails will be sent to the provided recipients.

Email Recipients

Once you select a valid rule, you can enter a comma separated list of recipients who will receive the email notifications.

Note that there is currently no guarantee that Data Governor’s emailing system will bypass spam filters so you will need to configure exceptions in some instances.

Job Dependencies

Using the “Depends On” section, you can select jobs that your new job will require a successful last execution of before running.

This behaviour is not enforced by default, you will need to set “Run this Job on Dependent Failure?” to “Yes” in order to utilize job dependencies.

If you want this new Job to be dependant on another, check the box next to the applicable Job name. You will also have to select if you wish the Job to still run if its dependant Job fails.
