Thread: Scope of variables Different between kettle 5 and kettle 8

  1. #1

    Default Scope of variables Different between kettle 5 and kettle 8

    Hi All,

    I have a job run at kettle 5.0.0.CE successfully. but when i run the same job on kettle CE . It raise a error. I check the log and find the root cause is Scope of variables Different .
    the transformation cant' get the variable values in the kettle 8. I set the scope is root-job.

    but when i set it to JVM . It does work on kettle 8.

    I want to know what's the different between kettle5 and kettle 8 for variable scope. If i set the scope to JVM whether will impact the others job call by crontab.

    Hasn't there been several discussions about bugs in version 8? I would try the latest version before looking for differences or bugs.

    The buggy version with problems with variables was the Pentaho 8.1 version, Pentaho 8.0 and Pentaho 8.2 should be OK in that part.
    @zxx2403, sorry, I can't help with your problem, my tests migrating from 6.1 to 8.0 didn't revealed problems with the variables' scope, but I haven't tested extensively, and next time I have some spare time I'm testing/moving to 8.2.
    OS: Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits
    Java: Openjdk 1.8.0_131
    Pentaho 6.1 CE
