RunAJob utility

RunAJob utility

You can use the
RunAJob utility
to run jobs or check job status instead of making calls directly through the
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
REST API.
The
RunAJob utility
runs a JAR file that calls an
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
REST API to run a job. After the job completes, the utility provides the following job details:
  • The user who initiated the job.
  • The time the job was initiated.
  • The run ID for the job.
You can use the
RunAJob utility
for certain
Data Integration
and
Mass Ingestion
asset types.
For
Data Integration
, you can run jobs for the following tasks and taskflows:
  • Mapping
    tasks
  • Synchronization
    tasks
  • Replication
    tasks
  • Masking
    tasks
  • PowerCenter tasks
  • Linear taskflows
  • Published taskflows
For
Mass Ingestion
, you can run file ingestion task jobs.
You must have the RunAJobCli package enabled in your
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
organization to use the
RunAJob utility
.
To see if your organization is licensed to use the utility, log in to your organization and click
Administrator
Licenses
, and then look for the RunAJobCli package toward the bottom of the page. If you do not see the package, contact Informatica Global Customer Support to enable it.
When the package is enabled, the utility can be found in the following location:
<Secure Agent installation directory>\apps\runAJobCli
To use the
RunAJob utility
, the Secure Agent host must have Java version 1.8 or higher installed.
