Storage Jobs

Storage jobs are not to be confused with component jobs. Storage jobs represent a low level view of all data loaded to and unloaded from the Table Storage. Working with the Storage jobs is rarely necessary for end-users. We provide this view mainly to maintain complete transparency of what is happening in your project.

The view of Storage jobs can be useful in very busy projects, or in cases where you see a component job being stuck on the message Waiting for X Storage jobs to finish.. There is a core limitation of Storage Tables — only one job may write to a table at a time. So when you see jobs taking longer than usual or waiting for Storage Jobs to finish, you might want to check the Storage Jobs to understand what is happening. You can see how many jobs are processing if they are writing to same tables, and then, for example, adjust orchestration triggers to avoid concurrency issues.
