Scheduling Jobs

The scheduling jobs feature provides a method to orchestrate the execution times of data load rules.

Note:

When you cancel a job from the Data Management user interface using Cancel Schedule, all instances of a schedule for a rule are cancelled. You cannot selectively cancel individual schedules for a rule.
