Adding a New Job

How to Add a New Job

To add a new Job, click on your chosen project, and then click New Job in the top-right corner.

New job

You can then provide a Job Name and click Submit to create a simple job with default customization.

If you would like to modify the job to your requirements, you can change the following fields. For example, you can choose to be notified by email when a job fails, you can choose to make the job try again automatically if it fails and you can also set your logs to debug for more information.

Job Fields and Details

When creating a job, there are several fields and details that can be provided to customize the behavior of your job.

These include:

Job fields

Job Name

This is a unique label to identify your job. It can be changed at anytime without affecting the underlying tasks and scheduling.

Logging Level

The Logging Level refers to how detailed the execution logs will be after running a Job.

Level Details Types of Logs
Standard This setting will produce a smaller set of logs with only meaningful, notable messages being shown. Success/failure notifications, task status and progression messages.
Debug This setting will show all logs that standard displays and will also display additional messages with lower level details. If you set logging to debug, it will only apply to the next run of the job. After it has been executed and the job is complete, it will reset back to the standard level of logs. Generated queries/statements, performance metrics, additional connection information.

Logging Batch Size

The Logging Batch Size determines the rate at which logs are submitted to the Loome Integrate Online API from the Agent. By default, the agent will submit logs in batches of 5. If there is a job which creates a large amount of logs (>100 pages worth) it’s advised that this value is increased so that less load is put on your tenant.

Increasing the batch size will slow down the rate at which realtime logging occurs in the job execution screen, however this does not slowdown the performance of the job execution itself.

Email Notifications Rule

The email notification rule can be used to configure job driven email notifications. This is where you can choose to be emailed after a job is run.

Currently Loome Integrate Online supports 3 different levels of email notifications.

Rule On Success On Failure
No Email No emails will be sent to the provided recipients. No emails will be sent to the provided recipients.
Notify on Success or Failure Emails will be sent to the provided recipients. No emails will be sent to the provided recipients.
Notify on Failure No emails will be sent to the provided recipients. Emails will be sent to the provided recipients.

Please note that if you deselect emails for ‘Job Execution Completion’ in your notification settings, you will not receive an email even if you have chosen to receive emails on successful completion or failure of a job.

Email Recipients

Once you select a valid rule, you can enter a comma separated list of recipients who will receive the email notifications.

Note that there is currently no guarantee that Loome Integrate’s emailing system will bypass spam filters so you will need to configure exceptions in some instances. Please check your spam folder and configure exceptions as required.

Retry Count

The retry count determines the number of times each task will be repeated if it fails on its first execution.

Provide a number in this field, which will be the number of times you want Loome to retry this job if it fails.

When one of your tasks fail, the job will automatically restart the task in the same execution and will use the retry count to keep sending it to the agent. It will repeat the task the amount of times you have chosen until it completes successfully or reaches the job’s retry count in failures.


If the next attempt fails, it will repeat the amount of times you selected as the retry count number.

For example, if I chose three as the retry count and it failed on the first attempt, it will repeat three more times if the task continues to fail in each attempt.

If successful, it will not need to repeat again and will complete the job. Its status will be noted as ‘Warning’ as shown in the image below. This job status of ‘Warning’ still means that the job was successful, but the status differs to notify you that a job ran successfully on a repeated attempt and will indicate that there was an issue on previous attempts.

For example, if I chose three retry attempts for a job, and the job failed its first attempt but it completed successfully on the second attempt, it will stop there and will have run a total of two times with the status ‘Warning’.

A successful job with the status 'Warning'

Submit the Job

After you have modified your chosen fields, you can click Submit at the bottom-right.

This job will appear in the project and you can now add tasks.
