This is another UI Feature which make the Airflow UI
- Clutter Free
- More readable
- More intuitive
Presently on Airflow, for any job there will be 2 steps – CREATE step and CHECK step.
CREATE STEP – It only creates the jobs/Runs the Job as per the schedule and dies of immediately
CHECK STEP – After the create step, this step will keep on tracking the status of the job ( i.e check if the job is in RUNNING/FAILED/SUCCESSFUL state)
We presently host close to approx. 40 jobs, before our enhancement there would have been 80 Steps created in the form of a TREE ( DAG ), but after our enhancement , the steps CREATE and CHECK have been merged on the UI side to just one single CHECK step.
