In the Scheduling configuration pane, you can configure basic properties, time properties, resource properties, scheduling dependencies, and node context for a node. This topic describes how to configure the basic properties of a node.

On the configuration tab of a node, click the Scheduling configuration tab in the right-side navigation pane. In the Scheduling configuration pane, set the parameters in the Basic properties section, as described in the following table.Basic properties
Parameter Description
Node name The name of the node that you specify when you create the node. To modify the name, right-click the node in the left-side navigation pane and select Rename.
Node ID The unique ID of the node. The node ID is generated when the node is committed for the first time. The node ID cannot be modified.
Node type The type of the node that you specify when you create the node. The node type cannot be modified.
Responsible Person The owner of the node. By default, the owner of a newly created node is the current logon user. You can change the owner as required.
Note The owner of the node must be a member of the workspace where the node resides.
Description The description of the node, including the business and usage of the node.
Parameters The parameter used to assign a value to a variable in the code during node scheduling. You can enter multiple parameters. Separate multiple parameters with spaces.

Parameter value assignment formats for various node types

  • Format for ODPS SQL and ODPS MR nodes: Variable name 1=Parameter 1 Variable name 2=Parameter 2. Separate multiple parameters with spaces.
  • Format for Shell nodes: Parameter 1 Parameter 2. Separate multiple parameters with spaces.

DataWorks provides built-in time parameters. For more information, see Scheduling parameters.
