Advanced Jobs

Advanced jobs are micro applications that can be run only in the OvalEdge environment to meet specific needs. The advanced jobs enable you to update the data specific to modules or features using advanced algorithms and to undertake tasks that cannot be accomplished using a traditional process . 

Example:  In the OvalEdge application there is no conventional way to generate the statistic report in the Data Literacy Dashboard. So to generate and view the report you need to run the advanced job Build DashboardStats. After running this Advanced Job the report will be generated in the Data Literacy Dashboard.

You can navigate to Advanced Jobs via Administration > Advanced Jobs.

The Advanced Jobs displays information such as Id, Name, Type, Class, Help, Attribute1 to Attribute5, Job Status, Last Run On, and Available Roles.
