This topic describes cross-tenant nodes that are typically used to associate nodes from different tenants. The cross-tenant nodes are divided into sender and recipient nodes.


A sender node and the recipient node must use the same Cron expression. You can choose Schedule > Scheduling Mode to view the Cron expression, as shown in the following figure.

Create a node

  1. On the Data Studio page, right-click Control, and choose Create Control Node > Cross-Tenant Node.

    Enter a name in the dialog box and click Submit.
  2. Complete the node configuration. Set the node type to Sendor Receive. Authorize a target workspace and a target Alibaba Cloud account. This example sets the node type to Send. Therefore, you need to enter the workspace and account that is authorized by the recipient node. Save and submit the node after completing the node configuration.

    Follow the same procedure to create a control node under the recipient's account and workspace. Set the node type to Receive. Afterward, the information about the available sender nodes will appear. You must also set the timeout timer. The timeout timer restarts when the recipient node starts running.

    The sender node sends a message to the message center, and starts running the message after it is successfully delivered. The recipient node continuously pulls messages from the message center. The recipient node starts running when it successfully pulls a message within the timeout period.

    If the recipient node will not be created when it does not receive a message within the timeout period. The timeout of a message can be set to a maximum of 24 hours.


    On October 8, 2018, a periodically created instance was successfully run and a message was sent to the message center. The recipient node is displayed, if you create a retroactive instance for the recipient node with the business date set to October 7, 2018.
