Adobe Experience Platform provides improved visibility for the status of all query jobs through the UI. From the Scheduled Queries tab, you can now find important information about your query runs that includes the status, schedule details, and error messages/codes should they fail. You can also subscribe to alerts for queries based on their status through the UI for any of these queries through Scheduled Queries tab.
The Scheduled Queries tab provides an overview of all your scheduled CTAS and ITAS queries. Run details can be found for all scheduled queries as well as error codes and messages for any failed queries.
To navigate to the Scheduled Queries tab, select Queries from the left navigation bar followed by Scheduled Queries
The table below describes each available column.
The alert subscriptions icon is contained in each row in an untitled column. See the alert subscriptions section for more information.
|Name||The name field is either the template name or the first few characters of your SQL query. Any query created through the UI with the Query Editor is named at inception. If the query was created through the API, then its name becomes a snippet of the initial SQL used to create the query. To see a list of all runs associated with the query, select an item from the Name column. For more information, see the query runs schedule details section.|
|Template||The template name of the query. Select a template name to navigate to the Query Editor. The query template is displayed in the Query Editor for convenience. If there is no template name, the row is marked with a hyphen and there is no ability to redirect to the Query Editor to view the query.|
|SQL||A snippet of the SQL query.|
|Run frequency||The cadence at which your query is set to run. The available values are
|Created by||The name of the user who created the query.|
|Created||The timestamp when the query was created, in UTC format.|
|Last run timestamp||The most recent timestamp when the query was run. This column highlights whether a query has been executed according to its current schedule.|
|Last run status||The status of the most recent query execution. The status values are:
|Schedule Status||The current status of the scheduled query. There are five potential values, Registering, Active, Inactive, Deleted, and a hyphen.
If you navigate to the Query Editor, you can select Queries to return to the Templates tab.
You can adjust the columns on the Scheduled Queries tab to your needs. To open the Customize table settings dialog and edit available columns, select the settings icon () from the top right of the screen.
The Created column that refers to the date the schedule was created, is hidden by default.
Toggle the relevant checkboxes to remove or add a table column. Next, select Apply to confirm your choices.
Any query that was created through the UI becomes a named template as part of the creation process. The template name is seen in the template column. If the query was created through the API, then the template column is blank.
The Scheduled Queries view offers various inline actions to manage all of your scheduled queries from one location. Inline actions are indicated in each row with ellipsis. Select the ellipsis of a scheduled query that you want to manage to see the available options in a pop-up menu. The available options include Disable schedule or Enable schedule, Delete schedule, and Subscribe to query alerts.
To disable a scheduled query, select the ellipsis of a scheduled query you want to manage, then select Disable schedule from the options in the pop-up menu. A dialog appears to confirm your action. Select Disable to confirm your setting.
Once a scheduled query is disabled, you can enable the schedule through the same process. Select the ellipsis, then select Enable schedule from the available options.
To delete a scheduled query, select the ellipsis of a scheduled query you want to manage, then select Delete schedule from the options in the pop-up menu. A dialog appears to confirm your action. Select Delete to confirm your setting.
Once a scheduled query is deleted, it is not removed from the list of scheduled queries. The inline actions provided by the ellipses are removed and replaced by the grayed out add alert icon. You cannot subscribe to alerts for the deleted schedule. The row remains in the UI to provide information on runs conducted as part of the scheduled query.
If you want to schedule runs for that query template, select the template name from the appropriate row to navigate to the Query Editor, then follow the instructions to add a schedule to a query as described in the documentation.
To subscribe to alerts for scheduled query runs, select the ellipsis of a scheduled query you want to manage, then select Subscribe from the options in the pop-up menu.
The Alerts dialog opens. The Alerts dialog subscribes you to both UI notifications and email alerts. Alerts are based on the status of the query. There are three options available:
failure. Check the appropriate box or boxes and select Save to subscribe. You can subscribe to alerts as long as they don’t have a Last Run Timestamp value.
See the alert subscriptions API documentation for more information.
Select the information icon () to see the details panel for the query. The details panel contains all the relevant information on the query beyond the facts included in the scheduled queries table. The additional information includes the query ID, the last modified date, the SQL of the query, the schedule ID, and the current set schedule.
You can filter queries based on run frequency. From the Scheduled Queries tab, select the filter icon () to open the filter sidebar.
To filter the list of queries based on their run frequency, select either the Scheduled or Run once filter checkboxes.
Any query that has been executed but not scheduled qualifies as Run once.
Once you have enabled your filter criteria, select Hide Filters to close the filter panel.
To open the schedule details page, select a query name from the Scheduled Queries tab. This view provides a list of all the runs executed as part of that scheduled query. The information provided includes the start and end time, status, and dataset used.
This information is provided in a five-column table. Each row denotes a query execution.
|Query run ID||The query run ID for the daily execution. Select the Query run ID to navigate to the Query run overview.|
|Query run start||The timestamp when the query was executed. The timestamp is in UTC format.|
|Query run complete||The timestamp when the query was completed. The timestamp is in UTC format.|
|Status||The status of the most recent query execution. The three status values are:
|Dataset||The dataset involved in the execution.|
Details of the query being scheduled can be seen in the Properties panel. This panel includes the initial query ID, client type, template name, query SQL, and cadence of the schedule.
Select a query run ID to navigate to the run details page and view query information.
The Query run overview provides information on individual runs for this scheduled query and a more detailed breakdown of the run status. This page also includes the client information and details of any errors that may have caused the query to fail.
The query status section provides the error code and error message should the query have failed.
You can copy the query SQL to your clipboard from this view. To copy the query, select the copy icon in the top right of the SQL snippet. A popup message confirms that the code has been copied.
Queries that use anonymous blocks to comprise their SQL statements are separated into their individual subqueries. The separation into subqueries allows you to inspect the run details for each query block individually.
The run details of an anonymous block that uses the DROP command will not be reported as a separate subquery. Separate run details are available for CTAS queries, ITAS queries, and COPY statements used as anonymous block subqueries. Run details for the DROP command are currently not supported.
Anonymous blocks are denoted through the use of a
$$ prefix before the query. To find out more about anonymous blocks in query service, see the anonymous block document.
Anonymous block subqueries have tabs to the left of the run status. Select a tab to display the run details.
In the event an anonymous block query fails, you can find the error code for that particular block through this UI.
Select Query to return to the schedule details screen, or Scheduled Queries to return to the Scheduled Queries tab.
