Announcement: Job History Accessibility (20160919)

We would like to let you know of an upcoming change in the accessibility to the Jobs History of the Treasure Data platform. This change will be in effect starting late October, 2016.

With the growing data volume and usage from our treasured customers, some helpful functionalities we want to offer require us to make trade-offs in other areas. We want to be able to provide a much faster way to list the Jobs in your account together with supporting more complex filtering and searching capabilities. In order to do that, we will start enforcing some limit on how much of the Job History can be accessed by all our customers.

Can we see the history of a scheduled job (e.g. weekly job)?

Yes, you can see the history of that scheduled query and the corresponding result for up to 90 days after each job executed.

Can we retrieve the job list on the CLI?

What to Expect

According to our research on existing usage patterns, 99.9% of the current usages would not be affected by this migration. On the other hand, we believe our users will get greater value from the new features and performance improvements that this change will enable us to introduce.
