Job History

Checking a job status

With the API

You can see the current job states of all datasources for the app myApp by calling the Jobs API:

curl -u user:pass http://proxy-url:8764/api/apollo/apps/myApp/jobs?type=datasource

If a job has never run, a Jobs API call returns the following:

        "resource": "datasource:myDatasource",
        "enabled": true,
        "startedBy": "09765f1d-2f1c-4c3b-ba22-887e3886d8aa",
        "status": "ready",
        "extra": {}
The value datasource:myDatasource indicates a datasource, myDatasource, is present. The line "status": "ready" indicates the current state of the job, which has never run.

After a job successfully completes, the following is returned:

        "resource": "datasource:myDatasource",
        "enabled": true,
        "startedBy": "09765f1d-2f1c-4c3b-ba22-887e3886d8aa",
        "status": "success",
        "extra": {
            "counter.failed": 0,
            "": 58242,

            "": 2268,
            "counter.output": 58241,
            "counter.other.pipeline.complete": 58242,
            "datasourceId": "myDatasource",
            "counter.input": 60435,
            "startTime": 1586298855843,
            "endTime": 1586299313433,
            "counter.skipped": 2194,
            "counter.stage.solr-index::01e1c561-0440-44b2-afb4-d6ff471f646c.processed": 58241,
            "counter.other.pipeline.out": 58242
        "lastStartTime": "2020-04-07T22:34:15.852Z",
        "lastEndTime": "2020-04-07T22:41:59.271Z"

To see the complete job history, use the following Jobs API call:

curl -u user:pass http://proxy-url:8764/api/apollo/datasource:myDatasource/history

The following is returned:

The section How does the Jobs API work? below gives additional details on how the Jobs API retrieves information from Fusion. See the Jobs API reference for more information.

With the UI

In the Fusion UI, navigate to Indexing > Datasources. Click a datasource to open the datasource panel.

Datasource panel

Note that the Last run start and Last run stop values are equivalent to the lastStartTime and lastEndTime values from the Jobs API call. (These values are only present if a job has been run at least once.)

Icon Description

Run button

The Run button opens a panel containing various run options and information.

Start button

The Start button starts a job.

Schedule button

The New Schedule button displays a dropdown with several scheduling options:

  • cron - Schedule a job based on a Crontab expression. See Cron Trigger documentation for more info.

  • interval - Schedule a job to run on an interval after a set starting point. For example, you can schedule a job to run every day at 1:00AM.

    Job schedule interval

  • job_completion - Schedule a job to run after another job has completed. You can schedule the job to run if the job succeeds, fails, or regardless of the job’s success.

    Job schedule job_completion

Stop button

The Stop button stops a running job. This results in a status of "status" : "aborted".

Job History button

The Job History button opens the Job History panel. Click one of the job entries to see additional details. Expand the job details for more information. Click Open Logs in Dashboard for complete information.

Clear Datasource button

The Clear Datasource removes documents from your collection that are indexed from that datasource. The job history will not be deleted.

In the job history panel, there is an icon on each datasource indicating its latest run history. The possible statuses are:

Icon Description

Never Run icon

The job has been created but has not been run.

Running icon

The job is currently running. Depending on the number of documents being processed, the job can take a long time to complete. Stop the job with the Stop button.

Success icon

The job was completed successfully.

Failed icon

The job was not able to successfully run. Expand the job details for more information. Click Open Logs in Dashboard for complete information.

Aborted icon

The job was manually stopped before it could finish.

Job history panel

The image above shows all possible job statuses.

How does the Jobs API work?

In Checking a job status with the API above, two Jobs API endpoints were used to call the datasource myDatasource:

  • myApp/jobs?type=datasource - Retrieves the current datasource job states for all datasources of a specified app. In this case, the app is specified as myApp.

    You can also use type=spark to retrieve all Spark jobs and type=task for task jobs.

  • /jobs/datasource:myDatasource/history - Retrieves a specific object’s job history. In this case, the object type is a datasource, as selected with datasource:.

    Datasources are not the only object type for jobs. There are also Spark jobs (spark:) and task jobs (task:).

Both of the API calls above send a request to Fusion’s API application, which serves the Jobs API. The API application contains two main components related to job history data, JobController and SolrJobHistoryStore.

The Job Controller

The Job Controller is responsible for getting any active job’s run status, if an active job is running.

In the case of V1 connectors classic datasource jobs, it will reach out to Fusion’s connectors-classic application’s connectors API.

When the API application calls the connectors-classic Jobs API, it will first use Zookeeper to identify the IP address of the connector-classic node that is assigned to this datasource, if one exists.

When the connectors-classic node IP assigned to the job is identified, the API application will call out to the connectors-classic node via http://<connectors-node-ip>:8984/connectors/v1/connectors/jobs/myDatasource. The call reaches the component ConnectorsManagerController to query the job status of currently running jobs with the ID myDatasource.

The Solr Job History Store

SolrJobHistoryStore reads and writes a job’s history data to and from Solr. Fusion’s API application creates a special system Solr collection, system_jobs_history, to store the history.

You can also query the job history from Solr directly, if you want:
