You can generate a ready-to-use Job on any of the analyses created in the studio and listed in the Profiling perspective.

The generated Job uses the tDqReportRun component. It will be listed under the Job Designs node in the Integration perspective.

Once you generate this Job, you can deploy it on Talend Administration Center web application and execute it remotely without having to open the studio.

Prerequisite(s): A report has been generated on an analysis in the Profiling perspective of the studio.

To generate a report-launcher Job, do the following:

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Data Profiling > Reports.

  2. Select the report(s) on which you want to generate a Job.

  3. Right-click your selection and place your pointer on Generate jobs in the contextual menu then select Launch a report.

    The Integration perspective opens on this Job which is listed as well under the Job Designs node in the Repository tree view.

    The Report filenames field points to the technical names of the analyses listed in the selected reports. The Output folder field points to the path of the output folder where to save the report file.

    Note

    If you exported the database connection as a context after generating the Job, click Browse Reports and select the report to be launched again or restart this procedure to be able to launch the report.

    The schema dialog box shows some read-only columns that will be printed onto the studio console after running the Job. They give some information about the generated reports.

    Note

    When you generate a Job on a report where context groups and variables are used in the datamart connection or the analyses, tDqReportRun follows certain rules to merge the context groups and variables.

    For further information about the rules tDqReportRun follows to merge the context groups and variables, see the documentation on Talend Help Center (https://help.talend.com).

  4. Press F6 to execute the Job for test purposes.

    This will launch the specified report(s) directly from the Integration perspective.

    If any modifications are done in the analysis after you generate the Job from the analysis report, you must click the Refresh Dependency tab in the basic settings of tDqReportRun before you execute the Job.

  5. Deploy this Job on Talend Administration Center web application.

  6. Launch the Job from Talend Administration Center every time you need to historize the analysis results in the report database (datamart) and save a report file in an output folder.

    If the Job does not run correctly, make sure to click the Refresh Dependency tab in the basic settings of tDqReportRun. This is necessary if any modifications have been done in the analysis in the Studio after you generate the Job from the report associated with the analysis.

    For further information about how to deploy this Job on Talend Administration Center and how to execute it without opening the studio, see the tDqReportRun documentation in Talend Components Reference Guide.
