The
JobSelector
parameter
location_name
is used to specify the location of the job within a Dagster instance when you are interacting with the system programmatically, such as through the GraphQL API or when using the Python API to retrieve job definitions. In a multi-repository or multi-location setup, you might have jobs with the same name across different locations. The
location_name
parameter helps to disambiguate which job you are referring to by providing the name of the code location where the job is defined. The documentation does not provide a direct example of using
location_name
with
JobSelector
, but it is implied that this parameter is part of the job selection process in a multi-location context. If you are working with a specific API or function that requires a
JobSelector
, you would typically need to provide the
location_name
alongside the
job_name
to uniquely identify the job you want to interact with. If you need further clarification or examples, it would be best to consult the specific API documentation or source code where
JobSelector
is used, as the general documentation provided does not include explicit code examples for this parameter.
