This article will show you how to create Split Jobs using the Admin Console.

Viewing a Split Job

When you view a job that has been split, the only visual difference from the Admin Console is the Work Schedule.  Typically a job would have one worker scheduled to a job.  Split Jobs contain multiple workers and show which worker is responsible for each split.

While viewing the job details, if you select Closed or Cancelled from the Scheduled list, it will close the entire job and ignore the splits.
