Understanding Batches

Modified on Tue, 21 Apr 2020 at 03:45 PM

Some processes take longer to complete. This is why Valigara runs operations in the background. Batches summarize all operations made in the account, and show their current status. You can pause, stop batches and cancel running operations. 

Batches list

Shows the list of all batches in the account. To access Batches page:

Search for specific batches by type, current status and the person who initiated them. Pause large batches to give priority to smaller, or more urgent one. Resume the paused batches so they can be processed accordingly.

Pause multiple batches by selecting them and usingbutton.

Pause or resume single batches usingandbuttons under Tools.

Batch statuses:

  • In Progress
  • Paused - manually paused by user. To continue the batch click Resume under Tools
  • Waiting - when batch is waiting in line to be processed. Avoids data collisions when using multiple exports, revise or import actions at the same time. Each batch is processed based on chronological order.
  • Success 
  • Completed with warnings - the operation was completed successfully for ALL items in the batch, but there are some warning messages during the operation. 
  • Completed with errors - the operation was completed successfully for for PART OF items in the batch. For some products, the operation wasn't executed. 
  • Error
  • Canceled

For the larger operations Valigara divides its work in several batches. This adds stability through the process. These batches will appear with "part X of Y" comment. 

When exporting to Excel, Valigara limits the max count of items in each file, to avoid huge files. Use "Maximum Lines in Excel export" setting in Global Settings to define the max number of items in every Excel file.
