Restarting a Job is supported in the data import scenario and not in the data export scenario. the Teradata Parallel Transporter DataConnector operator issues a File Set Position command to the Teradata Access Module for Kafka when a Teradata Parallel Transporter job terminates unexpectedly and restarts.

The Teradata Parallel Transporter DataConnector operator provides the Topic name and the offset number of the last message read for each partition to the Teradata Access Module for Kafka.

The Teradata Access Module for Kafka repositions the offsets for each partition based on the information provided by the Teradata Parallel Transporter DataConnector operator, and starts consuming the messages.
