Run Jobs

When your recipe is ready, you can execute a job to generate output results of your transformations applied to your dataset.

For more information, see Overview of Job Execution.


  • To generate results, you must define an output object, which includes information about output format, location, and other settings.

    • You can define an output as part of the process of running a job.
