Job Summary

The Job Summary provides an at-a-glance view of all the relevant information about each job you've created in Lytics. Jobs allow you to import, export, and enrich your first-party data using Lytics as the hub of your marketing tools. job-summary-header-2

At the top of the Job Summary page, you’ll see the following information:

  • Status: Indicates the current state of a job. See the table below for descriptions of each status.
  • Provider: Third-party tool that you are connecting with Lytics such as Facebook, Google, Mailchimp, etc.
  • Type: Indicates whether the job is an import, export, or enrichment.
  • Job: Name of the job, such as “Import Users & Activity” or “Export Audiences.”
  • Authorization: Name of the authorization, such as “Main Salesforce auth.”
  • Owner: Lytics user who created the authorization.
  • Created: Date the job was initially created.
  • Updated: Date the job was most recently edited.
  • Origin: Indicates how the job was created. It will list “Manual” unless a job has an associated Lytics Experience, in which case it will show “Experience”.
  • Experience: Name of the associated Lytics Experience (if applicable).

Job Status

Job StatusDescription
RunningThe job is actively running.
SleepingThe job is not actively running but is scheduled to run again after a given time period. A job is sleeping either because the job runs on a periodic cadence with scheduled sleeps in between job runs, or the job has encountered an error and is sleeping before retrying the request.
FailedThe job has encountered consecutive errors over a 10 hour period and is removed from running again. Check the logs to see if there are any fixable issues. Failed works can be resumed, which will schedule it to run again.
PausedThe job has been paused by a user. The work can be scheduled to run again by resuming the job.
CompletedThe job has completed all its scheduled tasks and will not be run again.

Activity Metrics

The activity chart will provide metrics (if available) on a job's performance to give a better understanding of how your data is flowing in and out of Lytics. You can see the number of profiles added, removed, or omitted by the job during the selected time frame. Note, this feature is currently in development. Once metrics are available for each job, this chart will become populated. job summary metrics
