Scheduling and Scripting PDI Content

Overview

Explains how to schedule and script PDI content.

Once you're finished designing your PDI jobs and transformations, you can arrange to run them at certain time intervals through the DI Server, or through your own scheduling mechanism (such as cron on Linux, and the Task Scheduler or the at command on Windows). The methods of operation for scheduling and scripting are different; scheduling through the DI Server is done through the Spoon graphical interface, whereas scripting using your own scheduler or executor is done by calling the pan or kitchen commands. This section explains all of the details for scripting and scheduling PDI content.
