Configuring a schedule and advanced options

task manually or schedule it to run at a specific time or interval. You can create a schedule or use an existing schedule.
You can also configure email notifications and advanced options for the task on the
Schedule
page.

    Schedule
    page, choose whether to run the task on a schedule or without a schedule.
  2. To run a task on a schedule, click
    Run this task on schedule
    and select the schedule you want to use.
    To create a new schedule, click
    New
    . Enter schedule details and click

    Parameter File Name
    Name of the file that contains the definitions and values of user-defined parameters used in the task.
    Maximum Number of Log Files
    Number of session log files, error log files, and import log files to retain. By default,
    Data Integration
    stores each type of log file for 10 runs before it overwrites the log files for new runs.
    Update Columns
    Database targets only. Temporary primary key columns to update target data.
    If the database target does not include a primary key column, and the task performs an update, upsert, or delete task operation, click Add to add a temporary key.
    Upsert Field Name
    The target field to use to perform upserts.
  6. Choose whether to run the task in standard or verbose execution mode.
    If you select verbose execution mode, the mapping generates additional data in the logs that you can use for troubleshooting. It is recommended that you select verbose execution mode only for troubleshooting purposes. Verbose execution mode impacts performance because of the amount of data it generates.
