Job Sequencing in Data Stage

Job Sequencing

It is Controlling the order of execution.

Master Job

Can run multiple jobs with same name



Checking the compilation of job 1,  if it is compiled with out errors , then job 2 is compiled.

Error handing 

This situation arises when Job is Aborted


When everything is successful, we should get an confirmation mail that it is Successful.

Wait for file 

Waits for the file , until it is searched and gets loaded in to the source.

check points

If job is aborted in between by any chance, check point make sure that the job starts from the point where it has failed.

parameter Mapping 

We cannot use a parameter defined in 1 job to another job , TO do this we use parameter Mapping.

Job sequencing Stages are categorized in to 4 groups 

  1. Run stages
  2. Flow control stages
  3. Error handling stages
  4. Other stages
