Enhance DataStage Flow Designer Integration with Git

We have started using Git for maintaining our DataStage codebase. We're able to publish/load the jobs to/from Git repo successfully. However, if we want to publish multiple jobs to the Git repository at once, current version of DataStage Flow Designer does not have the required feature.

Likewise, if we start to move and work in a different DataStage environment(i.e. production), we won't be able to load the jobs that don't exist in the environment from the repository.

  • Future consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Data Engineers and ETL developers will benefit. For Data Engineers, as their project grows, it should be easy enough to add and commit all the changes they made to their jobs at once.
How should it work?

There is no current workaround for this in the existing solution.

We'd like to see:

  1. Capability to publish/load jobs at the project level which allows to identify and select multiple jobs to publish/load to/from the Git repository

  2. Capability to load(close) jobs that don’t exist in the environment yet from the Git repository

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Data Engineers will be dependent on these services for better and more efficient code maintenance. But the existing services within CP4D do not support them..
