Create data generation job

There are 4 sections to configure a data generation job. Complete each section, so you can schedule or run the job.



  • Workspace: select one
  • Name
  • Description
  • Schedule type:
    • Once: run one time only
    • Cron: quartz cron string ( 6 digits format: 0 * * * * *
    • Random: start the job in a random window. Configure the minimum and maximum delays.
  • Maximum number of records: max records
  • Randomize number of records
  • Flush sink after each record creation: determine if the record is push to the sink after each creation
  • Use buffer: control if records are stored in temporary memory before being pushed to the sink. Can optimize processing time if sink is slow. Act as a back pressure control.
  • Buffer size: use in conjunction with Use buffer setting
  • Thread pool size: controls how many thread are spawn to generate records
  • Support job replay: flag that determine if job results will be persisted locally for future uses. That way you can replay the same records over and over in time.
  • Number of replay: how many job replays are kept. Old ones are erased automatically.



  • Check which datasets will be part of the job



  • Select one generator from the list
  • Field options: each generator as its own specific configuration, see Generators



  • Select one sink from the list
  • Prefill from existing configuration: if a Global sink was configured, you can use it here.
  • Sink options: each sink as its own specific configuration, see Sinks
