Job Relationships

View job relationships

Card view

You can easily see how jobs relate to each other by clicking on the job of interest (e.g., J6) in the card view. The parent(s) of the selected job, J5 (i.e., the job which provided inputs) are highlighted with a dashed red line, while the child J7 (i.e., the job which used inputs from J6) is highlighted with a dashed green line. Other un-related jobs fade away until you click somewhere else on the Workspace canvas.

Tree view

You can also view an interactive tree of all the jobs in a Project or Workspace. This makes it extremely easy to visualize your processing journey and understand how outputs of one job flow into the inputs of another. Switch between the cards view and the tree view using the buttons at the top of any Project or Workspace.
The tree view displays all jobs and their connections. Click and drag to move the tree around. Hold ALT and scroll to zoom in and out of the tree. You can also scroll up and down or left and right using a trackpad or mouse wheel.
All jobs are connected with each other, except for jobs in 'Building' status (purple) that have not been connected to anything, which will remain beside the tree on the right side until they are connected by dragging inputs.
Clicking on a particular job card in Tree View will highlight its parent and children jobs, and fade out other jobs in tree, until you double-click elsewhere on the workspace, or click ESC to de-select the job:

Interact with jobs

You can interact with jobs in the card view and the tree view in exactly the same manner:
    Click on the job number to open the job card (inspect view). Alternatively, press the SPACEBAR while the job of interest is selected. Exit inspect view by clicking the x or pressing the SPACEBAR again.
    Toggle between active and inactive Building states by pressing b while a Building job is selected, or clicking on the Building button on the job card
    Open the Job Builder to drag and drop inputs from job cards
