Determine if Pipeline Batch Running¶
The pipeline batch runs as an asynchronous task on the Sitecore server. This is done so that you can continue working in Sitecore as the pipeline batch runs.
But this also means that you will not be notified when the pipeline batch is finished running. There are, however, a couple of ways you can tell that the pipeline batch has completed:
- Option 1
The Run Pipeline Batch button is disabled while the pipeline batch is running. If the button is enabled, you know the pipeline batch is completed.
This criterion is not 100% reliable. The pipeline batch already running is only one reason why the button may be disabled. Other reasons include the tenant being disabled and no pipelines being assigned to the pipeline batch.
- Option 2
The pipeline batch item has a section Summary. In this section there is a field Last run finished. If the value in this field has a date/time value that is equal to or later than the value in the field Requested at, you know the pipeline batch is completed.
This criterion is not 100% reliable. If an unhandled exception is thrown while the pipeline batch is running, the pipeline batch will stop running. However, the Last run finished value will not be updated.
