    You can choose a previously created run profile for the selected Remote Engine or cluster to set the JVM parameters for the task execution.

    Select the lowest log level to be taken into account.

    This feature is only available with engine versions 2.8.3 and above.


    If the log level is set to Warning, only logs flagged as Warning and Error will be displayed on the Task execution log page.
  9. Optional: If you have scheduled the execution on a single engine, you have the option to run your Job as another user by entering their username in the Run as impersonated user field.
    For more information about user impersonation, see the Configuring user impersonation for Talend Remote Engine.
  10. Optional: If you have chosen an engine cluster as the runtime, you can run the task on multiple engines at the same time by selecting the Allow parallel execution of this task option.
