Jobs and Scheduling
A job is a runnable Fusion object that performs a specific activity. Datasource jobs, Spark jobs, and tasks are all types of jobs. Examples of the activities include:
Aggregating signal data
Training a shallow neural model and projecting each document onto the resulting vector embedding space
Loading data into a data source
Each job type is a type of Fusion object that you can run or schedule to be run.

The Jobs manager, available in the Fusion workspace at Collections > Jobs, provides a simple interface for viewing and scheduling jobs. You can also create tasks and Spark jobs here.
|You cannot create, run, or schedule datasource jobs in the Jobs manager. You must create them on the Datasources page, in the Index Workbench, or in the Quickstart. To run a datasource job, use the scheduler.|
