Jitterbit Data Loader: Implementing Sequential Operation via the Scheduling Feature
In an Integration Platform, we can easily create sequential processes by implementing some business logic via a workflow designer or similar feature. With the Jitterbit Data Loader, a similar goal can be achieved by utilizing the built-in scheduling function.
The scheduling function determines the execution time and frequency of an operation. Few things to keep in mind:
- Determine the time required for each of the processes to finish to avoid overlapping operations being run at the same time.
- Determine the sequence of the processes.
- For example, We need to first sync the Account before inserting contacts for the accounts. In this case, the operation related to the Accounts should be scheduled to run before the Contact.
- If there are multiple operations being set to run at the same time, we can utilize different priority setting to determine the operation sequence.
