Export job definitions

Export jobs let you export ReachFive data in a handy tool right from your ReachFive Console. You can execute the jobs on demand or schedule jobs to be run based on your needs. The export format is in CSV or JSON.

Currently, there are three different export job definitions you can leverage from the ReachFive Console:

Export path variables

In some cases, you might want to add meta information to the path of an export file for identification and analysis purposes. With export path variables, you can do just that. Wherever you would like a variable in the path, simply add it to the name of the file as shown here:

<serverhost>/path-to-file/{{datetime}}-file-{{job_execution_id}}.csv (1)
1 In this example, {datetime} and {job_execution_id} are inserted as part of the file name as part of the export.
The export path variable feature is available for all export types including exporting profiles, user events, and consents.

Available export path variables

The following variables are available for you to use as part of your export.

  • {{datetime}} is the job execution date in the format of yyyy-MM-dd HH-mm-ss.

  • {{date}} is the job execution date in the format of yyyy-MM-dd.

  • {{time}} is the job execution time in the format of HH-mm-ss.

  • {{*datePattern}} lets you set the date pattern as shown here.

  • {{account}} is the name of the account where the export occurred.

  • {{job_execution_id}} is the specific id of the export being executed.

Job reports

Job reports provide a snapshot of the different export and import jobs that you have run. Information such as the id, a definition, the job type, the progress of the job, the job’s status, and when the job was last run is provided for you so you can get a quick look at the latest jobs. To find more information about the job, you can view the job logs.

Only job reports run in the last 6 months are displayed on the Job reports page in the ReachFive Console. Older jobs are automatically deleted.

To access job reports:

  1. Open your ReachFive Console.

  2. Go to Settings  Job reports.

    Filter Description

    Job ID

    Filter by a specific job ID that has been run.

    This filter is particularly useful when you need to look into a specific job. Perhaps, you obtained the ID through logs or need to investigate further.

    Job definition ID

    Filter by a job definition ID.

    This filter is useful when you want to look at a particular job definition. Maybe, you want to see how often it’s been run, or why a specific job definition is succeeding or failing.

    Job type

    Filter by the type of job such as export or import.

    The job type filter is good to filter out only the type of jobs you want to see.

    Job status

    Filter by the status of the job.







  5. If desired, select a timeframe by clicking From for the starting date and To for the end date.

  6. Choose the Order of how you want your results displayed.

  7. Click Apply.
