The Teradata Transfer History view provides an enhanced display of the Data Transfer History information in the database. As data transfers are performed, an entry is placed in the Transfer History. The Transfer History view displays the data in a grid format that enables you to select rows or cells.

The Transfer History view provides extensive information about the data transfer event, such as the name, start time, rows transferred, source and destination systems, status (Completed, Canceled, or Failed), and summary. It provides options to:
  • Copy selected cells to the clipboard
  • Sort columns
  • Delete rows
  • Edit "Note" or "Name" for a history entry
  • Filter columns
  • Search for transfer history data
  • Hide and show columns
  • Auto-resize columns or rows
  • Display the job output for a History entry

The Transfer History view uses an embedded Derby Database to manage the Transfer History entries.

If you close the view, select Window > Show View > "" to reopen the view.

You can add notes manually by selecting the Transfer History View Note entry and in the toolbar clicking "" . In the Transfer History Note dialog, type the note you want added to the Transfer History View entry.

All columns are sortable in ASC/DSC order with the exception of the parameters column. The columns are sorted by left clicking the mouse button. This is for single column sorting only.

Columns are movable by selecting the column and dragging it to the new location. Columns are also re-sizable. Rows can be selected by clicking in the numbered row header.

If a filter is in effect, the result of a newly executed data transfer is inserted at the top row, regardless of whether it meets the filter criterion. If a sort is in effect the new entry is inserted in the sorted order.

The Summary column contains a brief summary of the data transfer, such as the source database and table names. The Job Output can be displayed by selecting the history entry and clicking Show Job Output in the toolbar. Failed data transfers display as red text in the Status column.
