I am using the tParallelize component to run a couple of jobs in Parallel - see the attached screenshot.
However, when I run this job using in the "prod context", the child jobs run in the "Default context" even though I want it to run in the "prod context".
What's the best to resolve this issue?
tried what you suggested - see screenshots - the "prod" context is stil not picked up by the child job - it's using "Default".
You do not want to use contexts (or context environments), they are terrible. Don't get me wrong, context variables are awesome. However the contexts (DEV,TEST, PROD, DEFAULT, etc) just lead to issues. Just use a default context. Use the implicit context load functionality to load your context variables from a file or database. This way you can handle the context in one location (file or database).
Thank you very much for your response.
I am new to Talend and still learning.
Can you please briefly outline how I can implement the solution you are proposing? A screenshot of a sample job would be really helpful :-)
Take a look at this: https://help.talend.com/reader/Z6nEoVnqAU2j~MFxYHYeOg/LfezCT8~JqVthW~n~utV6g
The above page shows how to set it up against a database table. You should be able to extrapolate from that to using a file. The format of the file needs to be....
ContextVariableName1=Value1 ContextVariableName2=Value2 ContextVariableName3=Value3 ContextVariableName4=Value4
so, here is my issue.
If I execute a simple tRunJob with
- Trunjob param set the right env,
- Execution tab parameter set the right env,
- Tick "transmission of all context" parameter checkbox in the trunjob compoonent properties
However, I need to run a tRunJob with a job that has multiple tRunJob.
In this case, then even though I transmit all context, the 2nd level tRunJob doesn't inherit the context from the 1st level tRunJob.
Essentially, I am trying to parallelize about 20 different jobs using the tParallelize component - see my original screenshot.
This is the reason for my suggestion. This is one of the reasons the contexts cause issues. If you only have a single default context and supply your different environment variables using a file or database, you can control this far easier.
