Monitor scheduled queries

Adobe Experience Platform provides improved visibility for the status of all query jobs through the UI. From 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.

Scheduled Queries

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 Scheduled Queries tab in the Queries workspace.

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.

Column Description
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. Select any item from the Name column to see a list of all runs associated with the query. 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 This is the cadence at which your query is set to run. The available values are Run once and Scheduled. Queries can be filtered according to their run frequency.
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: Success, Failed, In progress, and No runs.

If you navigate to the Query Editor, you can select Queries to return to the Templates tab.
