You can edit a saved job that appears in the Saved Jobs view to change the job definition, credentials, or other job settings.
Each job definition is associated with a job name. Each time you run a job using a particular job definition, you create an instance of the job with that name. If you run a job more than one time, you create multiple instances of the job based on that job definition. When you edit a job, you edit the underlying job definition, as well as all the instances of the job based on that job definition.
- Select next to a job.
- Click Edit.If you are the job owner (the user who created or last edited the job), the Objects tab of the Saved Jobs view appears. If you are not the job owner, you must enter credentials for the source and target systems.Spaces in the user name for the source or target id causes the job to fail.Spaces in the account name for the source or target account id causes the job to fail.
- [Optional] Provide a new name for the job.Naming considerations:
- If you do not rename the job, any job edits you make overwrite the existing job definition when you click Save.
- If you give the job a different, unique name, any job edits you make are used as a new job definition when you click Save. Thus renaming a job is equivalent to creating a new job.
- If you give the job an existing job name and click Save, an error results.
- Modify the information in the Objects and Job Settings tabs as desired.
- Click Save.If any database objects in the original job no longer exist, a message displays. Click OK and click Save again.
