Creates a SAINT export job.

This file represents classifications for a given relation. Before calling this API, use SAINT.GetFilters to obtain valid column numbers and names, and filter dates.

After creating an export job, use CheckJobStatus to determine when the export data is ready for download.

Export data files can be very large. Use ExportGetFileSegment to download the file in pieces (segments).

User Comments (1)

There are a few errors in this document.

First, date_filter_row_start_date is listed twice. I assume that the second one is for date_filter_row_end_date.

Also, and this one tripped me up a bit, the description for row_match_filter_empty_column_name should not mention any thing about a relation id. The proper param for row_match_filter_empty_column_name is a column id, which you can get by calling GetFilters for a specific relation id, not by calling GetCompatibilityMetrics.
