Container is a group of stages and links.

Types of containers



Local containers: Main purpose of local container is to convert the complex job design in to simple readable job design.

Shared containers: it is similar to local container but we can reuse it in many numbers of jobs in the same project.

A job sequence allows you to specify a sequence of Data Stage jobs to be executed, and actions to be takenĀ  depending on results.
