Jobs have default settings that are applied after a job is created. You can make changes to the default job settings using the Job Settings tab.
Field Description
Priority Set the relative priority for starting a job. Data Mover uses this priority to determine which jobs to run first when multiple jobs are in the execution queue. This priority is also used to determine which tasks are run first. The options are Low, Medium, and High. The default is Medium. Jobs designated as high priority are started before lower priority jobs when they are queued to run. A column indicating job priority is available for display in the Saved Jobs view.
Use Online Archive Set read and write access to a source table while the table is copied to the target:
  • Default: Use the daemon setting in the Data Mover Setup portlet.
  • True: Applies only to Teradata DSA jobs. Update the source table during the copy process, but the changes are not transferred to the target table. Instead, the data contained in the target table matches the data that was in the source table at the beginning of the copy process.
  • False: Do not use the online archive.

Online archiving demands more processing so expect job performance to be reduced.

Logging Level Set the amount of detail provided for job logging as follows:
  • Off: Disable logging.
  • 1: Enable minimal logging. Provides essential information, such as error and warning messages.
  • 2: Enable more logging. Provides additional information, including informational messages for example.
  • 99: Enable full logging. Provides detailed information, including debug messages for example.
Allow Overwrite Set to True overwrite tables and objects on the target automatically, if the target table or object exists.
The following describes the behavior when moving join indexes, hash indexes, and triggers to Teradata Database when set to True:
Same Name Join or Hash Index
If the join or hash index of the source database is named the same as that in the target database, it is overwritten.
Table with associated Join or Hash Index
Moving a table that exists on the target with an associated join or hash index overwrites the target table and recreates the join or hash index on the newly copied table.
Trigger Exists with Same Name
If a trigger exists on the target database with the same name as in the source and within the same database, it is overwritten.
Table Exists with Trigger
If a table exists on the target with a trigger, the target table is overwritten. The trigger is recreated on the newly copied table.
Compare DDL Set to compare the DDL of source tables and views with those of their existing target tables and views. Views are compared only if their copyData attributes have been specified as true.
  • Default: Use the daemon setting in the Data Mover Setup portlet.
  • True: Compare the DDL of source tables and views to those of their corresponding target tables and views.
  • False: Do not compare the DDL of source tables and views to those of their corresponding target tables and views.
Database to Client Encryption Set to enable encryption for a particular job, table, or view using any Data Mover interface.
  • Default: Use the daemon setting in the Data Mover Setup portlet.
  • True: Copy statistics for all tables, indexes (hash or join), and underlying objects at the job level
  • False: Use object-level settings for copying statistics.
Copy Stats Set to enable copy the statistics for a particular job or table using any Data Mover interface.
  • Default: Use the daemon setting in the Data Mover Setup portlet.
  • True: Override the daemon setting and enable encryption.
  • False: Override the daemon setting and disable encryption.
Event table logging Set logging of events related to the job by clicking the Edit button and selecting one or more event tables.

The options are displayed if event tables are specified in the Data Mover Setup portlet.

Job Permissions Set the read, write, and execute permission for users and roles.
Freeze job steps Set to verify any changes in the source and target environments between the time the job was first created and the time the job is run. If you select this option you can later update job steps from the Saved Jobs view.
This option generally improves performance.
Foreign Server Name Select the foreign server that was created to copy data between Teradata and Teradata systems.
Query Band Set to tag sessions or transactions with user-defined name-value pairs in the format of key=value as comma-separated name pairs. If you define a query band for a job, Data Mover uses that definition for all transactions on the source and target systems for the job.
Target Database Set a default target database that is used for all database objects included in the job request. Click "" to select a database. You can use the filter to display only the items that match the characters you enter.
Source staging Database for tables Set a default source staging database that is used for all tables included in the job request. Click "" to select a database. You can use the filter to display only the items that match the characters you enter.
Target staging Database for tables Set a default staging database for tables that is used for all tables included in the job request. Click "" to select a database. You can use the filter to display only the items that match the characters you enter.
Target staging Database for temporary artifacts Set a default staging database for temporary artifacts, such as work tables, log tables, error tables, or macros. Click "" to select a database. You can use the filter to display only the items that match the characters you enter.
