To create a schedule for a process you will need to review the following article:
- Automated Schedule
How To Read Data
- JobID displays unique identifier for that single instance.
- Job Name will show the name set on the schedule. If process was run manually and not via automation the Job Name will show as the spec being used and will be appended with either UI Preview or UI Run.
- If the name is appended with UI Preview that means the process did not make any changes to data in the system.
- If the name is appended with UI Run that means the process was manually activated and data was added to or changed within the system.
- JobType displays module information associated to the job
- Status displays the current situation of the job.
- Started displays the server day and time the job began.
- Ended displays the server day and time the job completed.
- Server tells you which server the job ran on.
Succeeded does NOT mean there are no errors in the job log. It may be necessary to review the job log to investigate concerns.
Jobs should not run longer than 2 hours under normal circumstances. If you have a job that has been running 2+ hours, please open a ticket
