Configure Jobs

The configuration options for a job will depend on the nature of data that is being extracted. Gravity sets defaults for most configuration options, but these can be changed by the user.

Configure in bulk

Configurations can be edited in bulk when they are applicable to all of the selected jobs on the page. For example, the Run Frequency configuration can be set for all selected jobs in bulk. Set the frequency at the top of the page and click the 'Apply' button to apply the change to all selected jobs.
