I have a 3 Jobs running parallel inside a Job Reference in a Process Flow. Each of the Job strings end with an expression test that results in a raiseevent.  In the process flow I have 3 listeners chained ( assuming that creates an AND requirement to continue)

 

I have similar structures for other files but they only have a single or double Event listener.  THESE WORK and the process continues as it should but when I have 3 it stops at the 3rd one and doesn't appear to get the event

 

 

Is this possible or is there a limit of 2. Am I using the listeners incorrectly ?

 

 

Goal :   Check the file structures and that there is files to process .   If pass continue on to the actual ETL portion of the process without stopping the other branches of the process

If the use case is to start a main job checking if some conditions are met, I don't think that listeners are mandatory. Listeners are designed for running a specific process upon an event, like a try/catch.

For your case, I will monitor that each sub succeeds, and if all of them are ok I will run the main one. put a quick example in attachment.

 

Hope that helps

Hi

 

I don’t think there is any limit for events.

However I do think the design is important. Is the attachment containing an example of your job?

If I understand well 3 conditions have to be met for the ELT job to be started right?

Vincent Thank you for responding .. attached is a simpler job example .. But yes that is the essence of it. I have 2 or more events connecting to either an IF node or an expression . when ALL listeners occur then execute the job on other side.

 

I cant figure out how to accept a success (Continue Processing) from the Listeners.

That's perfect Thank you that will work perfectly, I understand it AND you introduced Get/Set and how to actually use the IF node. this was VERY helpful
