Jobs History

Multiple operations can be run in an asynchronous manner without waiting for one operation to complete before you start the next operation. These operations can be easily identified by the jobs associated with them. The jobs and the details like configuration, result etc. can be securely accessed over https via this Jobs History view. These details are encrypted at rest to ensure protection against a data breach.

All jobs are recorded across all sessions and are held as long as you are a DeltaJSON user with an active subscription.

Jobs History view is a good reminder of the operations and their details run till date by you. This maybe of use for future reference if you wish to compare certain configurations and results


Check the logs to view the status of operations running/ran in the current session. If you face any issues, quote the result name and the related logs. from this view and we are happy to assist…
