    Default How to create unique id


    i want to write some logs in my transformations that are running inside a job. When the job starts i want to generate a unique id for this job and set it as a variable to have it available inside the transformations.
    How can i create a unique idenitifer for a job-run?
    Can i use the parent job batch id from get system info step in my set variable transformation? It is verry important that this id is unique for a single job run

    I usually take a value from a sequence in oracle.
