SAS Namespace Types


Subclass of Transformation



A job is a set of processes that initiate a process or create an output such as a data store or output table. A given job can produce a single output or multiple outputs. In addition, jobs can be scheduled.

As a supertype, the AbstractJob metadata type defines metadata that is common to all metadata types that define a job and should not be instantiated. When actually defining a job, use the Job metadata type and follow the recommendations for other metadata types provided in the documentation for the feature for which you want to create metadata. For instance, if you want to create a job for the LSF Scheduler, read the documentation for the scheduler.

Security Inheritance and Enforcement Rules

The following list of associations is used to determine if this object should inherit access controls from another object (inheritance), or if the association is allowed for the object (enforcement). An association will not be created unless the calling user is authorized to update one or both objects involved in the association. For more information about inheritance and enforcement rules, see the SAS Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide.


Inherited Attributes
Name, Id, Desc, MetadataCreated, MetadataUpdated, ChangeState, IsActive, IsHidden, IsUserDefined, LockedBy, PublicType, TransformRole, UsageVersion


= indicates the resident side of an association, or where the association is persisted for cross-repository associations. If no resident side is indicated, this association may not cross repository boundaries.
