Jobs are the main processing object within Openprise. A job represents a set of ordered tasks that are executed on a particular Data Source (which is just a set of records). Each job can be either independent or a linked job depending on the input data source used. If the input data source is an external data source, it is an independent job. But if the input data source is an internal data source such as the output another job, then the job is a linked job.
Jobs can be run manually from the Job screen, or they can be added to a bot and will execute whenever the bot is run.
Tasks are the atomic processing object with Openprise. A task represents a particular action performed on one or more attributes within each record for a particular set of records (Data Source). Each task has an input data source as well as an output data source. Because tasks belong to a job in an ordered fashion, each task's output is used as the input to the very next task in the job.
There are many task templates and each fulfills a unique role. It is important to find and use the correct task template for your job. Please browse through the documentation to find detailed information and samples of the task template you are interested in.
