Each Data Governor Job has the ability to run via two methods, manually and through schedules. Data Governor offers many schedules for each Job.
Through the Schedules page, the users are able to create new Schedules for a given Job. Each Job may contain numerous schedules ranging in different types.
Data Governor allows for the creation of two types of Schedules. One time and Recurring schedules. Each one alters the wizard and shows you only the relevant options while creating the schedules.
The One Time schedule type refers to a fire and forget approach where you can run a Job at a given date, time and selected time zone, but only once.
After a One Time schedule has been ran, it becomes “Inactive” due to it passing its scheduled execution time.
The Recurring schedule type refers to an ongoing schedule. Data Governor allows the user to create a wide range of potential schedules – both simple and complex. At its core, the recurring schedules are split into two sections, Series and Frequency. For a recurring schedule to be valid, it must have a defined series of execution days as well as the frequency which sets what time/s of the day it runs.
The Series in relation to the scheduling system, refers to a day related threshold. Currently Data Governor supports three different kinds of series.
The Frequency in relation to the scheduling system, refers to a time related threshold. There are two main kinds of Frequency options, Recurring and Just Once.
If the start time is later than the end time, the system will treat the end time as the time found on the next day. This is how you can create overnight schedules.
The final step for both One time and Recurring schedules will require the user to select the date that the schedules will be active from. However the end date is optional. This allows users to add schedules well before they are required to occur and allows a new level of Job running automation. In a Recurring schedule, you can select your preferred time zone here.
