User, Administrator

When you run a job for an app that runs once or on schedule, AppCenter prompts you to select the system to query, a Teradata Database, Teradata Vantage, Aster Database, Hive, or Presto system. The root user must first create a system that you specify when executing a job for this app type. For apps that run until stopped, AppCenter queries the system service API directly to get the system information for the query.

When required settings are completed, you can run the job for your app. You can run as many jobs as you want for apps that run once or on schedule. You can run only one job at a time for apps that run until stopped.

If an email account is configured, AppCenter sends you notification about job status.

For apps that run until stopped, you can open the app URL once the app is running.
