After you create and publish a job, you must start the job on the Developments page to run the job. If you want to resume a job that is suspended or canceled, you must start the job.

Background information

You can start a job in the following scenarios:
  • Start a job that is published: You can select Start without state for Start Method and specify Start Time for Reading Data.
  • Start a job that is suspended: If a job is suspended, the system creates a savepoint for the job and cancels the job. When you start the job, the job resumes from the latest state.
  • Start a job that is canceled: If a job is canceled, the system clears the checkpoint information about the job. When you start the job, you can select Start without state for Start Method and specify Start Time for Reading Data. You can also resume a job from the selected savepoint.
