  • View details: Click View details to view the generated results in the side bar. See the Output Destinations below.

Completed Stages:

This panel provides information on the progress and completion status of each stage of the job execution. 


Tip: Depending on the operation, you may be able to monitor transfer rate performance for larger datasets.

  • Connect: The platform is attempting to connect to the datastore hosting the asset sources for the datasets.
  • Schema validation: When enabled, the schemas of a job's datasources are checked as the first step of job execution.
    • Datasets with changes in them are reported at the top of the list. Click View all to see schema validation for all of the datasets used in the job in the Data sources tab.
    • Optionally, the job can be halted if there are differences between the schema that is read and the schema that has been stored from the previous job run. This option can prevent data corruption. For more information, see Run Job Page.
    • If no errors are detected, then the job is completed as normal.
    • For more information on schema validation, see Overview of Schema Management.
  • Request:The platform is requesting the set of assets to deliver.
  • Ingest: Depending on the type of source data, some jobs ingest data to the base storage layer in a converted format before processing begins. This ingested data is purged after job completion.
  • Prepare: (Publishing only) Depending on the destination, the Prepare phase includes the creation of temporary tables, generation of manifest files, and the fetching of extra connections for parallel data transfer.
  • Transfer: Assets are transferred to the target, which can be the platform or to the output datastore.
  • Transform: This stage covers the execution of your recipe steps in order to transform the source data. 

  • Profile: If you chose to profile your output data, this stage is completed after transformation is complete. Results are available in the Profile tab.


    NOTE: If you chose to generate a profile of your job results, the transformation and profiling tasks may be combined into a single task, depending on your environment. If they are combined and profiling fails, any publishing tasks defined in the job are not launched. You may be able to ad-hoc


  • publish the generated results. See below.

  • Publish: This stage covers the writing of the outputs of the transformed data. These outputs are available through the Output destinations tab.

  • Process: Cleanup after data transfer, including the dropping of temporary tables or copying data within the instance.

For more information, see \Overview of Job Monitoring.

If present, you can click the Show Warnings link to see any warnings pertaining to recipe errors, including the relevant step number.

      NOTE:  You can re-run a failed job from the Transformer page. If you have since modified the recipe, those changes are applied during the second run. See Transformer Page.


  • Job type: The method by which the job was executed:
    • Manual - Job was executed through the application interface.

User: The user who launched the job

Environment: Where applicable, the running environment where the job was executed is displayed.

Start time: Timestamp for when processing began on the job. This value may not correspond to when the job was queued for execution.

Finish time: Timestamp for when processing ended on the job, successful or not

Last update: Timestamp for when the job was last updated

Duration: Elapsed time of job execution


vCPU usage: Total vCPU hours used to run the job. For more information, see Usage Metrics.

Optimization summary:

For jobs sourced from relational datasets, you can optionally enable SQL-based optimizations, which apply some of the steps specified in your recipe back in the datasource, where they can be executed before the data is transferred to the running environment for execution. Using these optimizations means faster performance based on a lower volume of data transfer.

Project owners must enable the optimization feature for the project. For more information, see Dataprep Project Settings Page.

When the feature is enabled, optimizations must be enabled for each flow. You can also select the optimizations to apply. For more information, see Flow Optimization Settings Dialog.

When optimizations have been applied to your flow, they are listed on the Overview tab:

Optimization: This setting is displayed if flow optimizations have been enabled for this flow.

Columns pruned: If one or more unused columns have been pruned in the datasource via SQL, the count of columns is listed here.

Filters pushed down: If one or more row filters has been applied in the datasource via SQL, the count of filters is listed here.

If an optimization is disabled or was not applied to the job run, it is not listed.


For each output, you can do the following:

Your version of the product supports publishing.

Your connection to the storage system includes write permissions.

Your results are generated in a format that the target system supports for writing.

SQL scripts tab


Connection: Name of the connection through which the script was executed.

  • Run before data ingest - script was executed pre-job.
  • Run after data publish - script was executed post-job, after the job results had been written.

Status: Current status and execution duration of the SQL script.


NOTE: If you have multiple SQL scripts for each settings, they may execute in parallel. For example, if you created three pre-job SQL scripts, there is no guarantee that they executed in the order in which they are listed.
