get-job

Description

Retrieves an existing job definition.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-job
--job-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--job-name (string)

The name of the job definition to retrieve.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

Job -> (structure)

The requested job definition.

Name -> (string)

The name you assign to this job definition.

Description -> (string)

A description of the job.

LogUri -> (string)

This field is reserved for future use.

Role -> (string)

The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role associated with this job.

CreatedOn -> (timestamp)

The time and date that this job definition was created.

LastModifiedOn -> (timestamp)

The last point in time when this job definition was modified.

ExecutionProperty -> (structure)

An ExecutionProperty specifying the maximum number of concurrent runs allowed for this job.

MaxConcurrentRuns -> (integer)

The maximum number of concurrent runs allowed for the job. The default is 1. An error is returned when this threshold is reached. The maximum value you can specify is controlled by a service limit.

Command -> (structure)

The JobCommand that executes this job.

Name -> (string)

The name of the job command. For an Apache Spark ETL job, this must be glueetl . For a Python shell job, it must be pythonshell .

ScriptLocation -> (string)

Specifies the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) path to a script that executes a job.

PythonVersion -> (string)

The Python version being used to execute a Python shell job. Allowed values are 2 or 3.

DefaultArguments -> (map)

The default arguments for this job, specified as name-value pairs.

You can specify arguments here that your own job-execution script consumes, as well as arguments that AWS Glue itself consumes.

For information about how to specify and consume your own Job arguments, see the Calling AWS Glue APIs in Python topic in the developer guide.

For information about the key-value pairs that AWS Glue consumes to set up your job, see the Special Parameters Used by AWS Glue topic in the developer guide.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Connections -> (structure)

The connections used for this job.

Connections -> (list)

A list of connections used by the job.

(string)

MaxRetries -> (integer)

The maximum number of times to retry this job after a JobRun fails.

AllocatedCapacity -> (integer)

This field is deprecated. Use MaxCapacity instead.

The number of AWS Glue data processing units (DPUs) allocated to runs of this job. You can allocate from 2 to 100 DPUs; the default is 10. A DPU is a relative measure of processing power that consists of 4 vCPUs of compute capacity and 16 GB of memory. For more information, see the AWS Glue pricing page .

Timeout -> (integer)

The job timeout in minutes. This is the maximum time that a job run can consume resources before it is terminated and enters TIMEOUT status. The default is 2,880 minutes (48 hours).

MaxCapacity -> (double)

The number of AWS Glue data processing units (DPUs) that can be allocated when this job runs. A DPU is a relative measure of processing power that consists of 4 vCPUs of compute capacity and 16 GB of memory. For more information, see the AWS Glue pricing page .

Do not set Max Capacity if using WorkerType and NumberOfWorkers .

The value that can be allocated for MaxCapacity depends on whether you are running a Python shell job or an Apache Spark ETL job:

  • When you specify a Python shell job (JobCommand.Name ="pythonshell"), you can allocate either 0.0625 or 1 DPU. The default is 0.0625 DPU.
  • When you specify an Apache Spark ETL job (JobCommand.Name ="glueetl"), you can allocate from 2 to 100 DPUs. The default is 10 DPUs. This job type cannot have a fractional DPU allocation.

WorkerType -> (string)

The type of predefined worker that is allocated when a job runs. Accepts a value of Standard, G.1X, or G.2X.

  • For the Standard worker type, each worker provides 4 vCPU, 16 GB of memory and a 50GB disk, and 2 executors per worker.
  • For the G.1X worker type, each worker maps to 1 DPU (4 vCPU, 16 GB of memory, 64 GB disk), and provides 1 executor per worker. We recommend this worker type for memory-intensive jobs.
  • For the G.2X worker type, each worker maps to 2 DPU (8 vCPU, 32 GB of memory, 128 GB disk), and provides 1 executor per worker. We recommend this worker type for memory-intensive jobs.

NumberOfWorkers -> (integer)

The number of workers of a defined workerType that are allocated when a job runs.

The maximum number of workers you can define are 299 for G.1X , and 149 for G.2X .

SecurityConfiguration -> (string)

The name of the SecurityConfiguration structure to be used with this job.

NotificationProperty -> (structure)

Specifies configuration properties of a job notification.

NotifyDelayAfter -> (integer)

After a job run starts, the number of minutes to wait before sending a job run delay notification.
