Your task is ready to run on Talend Cloud Management Console.

Note: If you try to execute a task that is already running, the execution fails. Talend Cloud Management Console retries the execution every 4 minutes. If the deployment fails for the fifth time, you will get the error message Exceeded the limit of deployment attempts: another instance of the same task was running on the engine at same time. Try to run the task later.
