Transfer Data with Job Methods and Properties

To transfer data to the cloud cluster, you can use the AttachedFiles or JobData properties, in the same way you use these for other clusters. For example:

  1. Place all required executable and data files in the same folder.

  2. Specify that folder in the AttachedFiles property of the job.

    When you submit your job, the files are transferred to the cloud and made available to the workers running on the cloud cluster.

Data that is stored in job and task properties is available to the client, so your task or batch function results are accessible from the finished job’s fetchOutputs function or the tasks’ OutputArguments property. For batch jobs that run on the cloud, you can access the job’s workspace variables with the load function in your client session.
