Thread: Error not correctly reported for Kettle job

  1. #1

    Default Error not correctly reported for Kettle job

    I have a kettle job for which I have turned logging on. I have modified the input data for the job so that it errors at the second step. The second step is a java script step. The step errors correctly however the error is not correctly reported in the log. The Errors column in the log table is always 0, whether the step errors or not.

    I have attached a screen shot of the Kettle GUI as well.Name:  kettle.jpg

    Hi Harsh,

    you should make the job fail properly. Please attach an abort job entry to the the JS step and make sure the arrow is red (i.e. follow on failure).

    I have a root Job which has a transformation and another Job which is looping in base of the data coming from the transformation.

    The inner job may or may not fail, but it doesn't stop until all rows have been consumed. I want the Job Log Table to update the ERROR column accordingly the errors occurred in each iteration. I tried this and after some tests I was not very clear how to reach this.

    Abort step neccesary? In which job level?? Job must terminate END or STOP?

    Thanks so much!!
