    Question How to change jobsetting for a lot of jobs?

    A colleague made a project in Spoon with ~100 jobs.

    Now I want to enable logging for these jobs, which he hasn't done properly.

    Is there a way to quickly apply the same logging settings for all jobs? Can I set them at some root / project level, or do I need to manually edit all jobs by hand?

    ah ha! take a look at the kettle franchise framework. It has a job/script that does exactly this!

    Thanks, I had never heard of it... I'll look into it.

    There are global variables that allow you to make one configuration setting to affect all jobs/trans logging.

    Mouse over the fields in a transformation for some information. (Apparently not all fields in Job have been updated)

    Haven't read through them, but more references to the feature:

    http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI-2378
    http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI-4799

    We could use some "real" documentation on this feature so we don't have to poke here and there to make inferences on usage and purpose.

    Alternatively you could try to do a global replace in all the XML files. Should be fairly simple too.
