Which job do you want to add? Another sequential job or a parallel job? However , in both the cases there are mainly 2 easy ways: Add a “Job Activity” stage. Sequencer. Multiple inputs and multiple outputs. 11 here we are executing Trigger Stage that is job finished with no errors/ Warnings. Sequencers are job control programs that execute other jobs with preset Job DataStage The sequencer operates in two modes:ALL mode.

You create the sequence job in the Designer client and add stages. This process generates the master sequencer job and stores it in the target file path you specified in step seven.

Specify these characteristics to determine how your sequence job runs. Rohit Soni Jul 20th, Sequencer Activity Stage is stage that is used to control and coordinate the flow of execution in a Job Sequence. General activity properties After you design your sequence job by adding activities and specifying triggers, you enter the details that determine how each activity operates.

Routine activity properties In addition to the General and Triggers pages, the Properties dialog box datatage a routine activity contains a Routine page. Designing DataStage and QualityStage jobs. Other dimension and fact jobs may have dependencies and, unless those dependencies are identified and managed accordingly, we advise that you do not run them in parallel. Only staging sequencer jobs can be run in parallel. This stage can have multiple input triggers and multiple output triggers.

Yes you can run the 2nd job even if the first one fails.

What are Sequencers?

However, in case, if you want to execute next job even though all the incoming triggers are False, then Seqencer is NOT the solution. These actions are computation tasks that are written in Jaql, MapReduce, or other frameworks that you use to write applications to process large amounts of data. Sequence jobs contain activities, which are special stages that indicate the actions that occur when the sequence job runs. Ensure you select the proper mode for the sequential jobs included in the master sequencer.


Use the Enter the Jobname field to enter the name of the datastgae master sequencer job. Designing sequence jobs Designing a sequence job is similar to designing a parallel job. By using sequence jobs, you can integrate programming controls into your ssequencer workflow, such as branching and looping. datasgage

Sequencers are job control programs that execute other jobs with preset Job parameters. Creating parameters in your sequence jobs You use parameters in your sequence jobs to specify values at run time, rather than hard coding the values. Daatastage Loop activity properties The end loop stage marks the end of the loop.

Examples of using the sequencer stage

Creating sequence jobs You create sequence jobs by adding datastaye, linking the activities, specifying triggers for each activity, and optionally adding parameters for each activity. To create a master sequencer job using the master sequencer utility:. Sequence job activities Sequence jobs contain activities, which are special stages that indicate the actions that sequemcer when the sequence job runs.

In this mode all of the inputs to the sequencer must be TRUE for any of the sequencer outputs to fire. You can create a master sequencer job to invoke and run all the required sequencers that populate a specific fact tableor populate all fact tables for a given data mart, or all fact tables for an entire EPM warehouse.

For example, if you have 5 jobs which hare interdependentthen you would call them from a sequencer. The file path you specify should be local to the server; do not specify a path to a client machine.

Ensure that each job is entered on a separate line. The master sequencer utility is available in the following DataStage folder: Each activity also contains properties that are passed to other activities in the sequence job. As with stages, you can define job parameters for each activity.


As the name suggests, it is basically to execute the jobs sfquencer sequence. If you run a restartable sequence and one of the jobs fails, you can fix the problem, then run the sequence job again from the point at which it failed.

If you think the above answer is not correct, Please select a reason and add your answer below. Creating a Master Sequencer Job To create a master sequencer job using the master sequencer utility: You interact with activities in the same way that you interact with stages in parallel jobs and server jobs.

Specifying triggers Triggers determine what actions an activity takes when it runs as part of a sequence job. Import the generated master sequencer job into your DataStage project.

Job Activity properties Use the Job Activity stage to specify information about the job that the job activity runs. Datastxge job sequence includes properties and can have parameters, which are passed to the activities in the sequence job. You specify the control information, such as the different courses of action to take depending on whether a job in the sequence succeeds or fails.

Sequencer activity properties You use the Sequencer stage to synchronize the control flow of multiple activities in a job sequence.

Using the Master Sequencer Utility to Create Master Sequencer Jobs

Hard-coded values in the sequencer job parameters are listed as warning messages in the log file. Sequence job properties Sequence jobs contain basic properties just like parallel jobs and server jobs. It can accept multiple input triggers and multiple output trigger.

Priyanka Mar 10th, The stages that you add are known as activities. Creating environment variables in your sequence jobs You can define an environment variables as a job parameter to use dtaastage your sequence jobs.
