How can I set the status of a databricks job as skipped via python?

New Contributor II

I have a basic 2 task job.

  • The 1st notebook (task) checks whether the source file has changes and if so then refreshes a corresponding materialized view. In case we have no changes then I use = "skip_job", value = 1) & dbutils.notebook.exit("SKIP").
  • The 2nd notebook (task) checks the passed variable from the 1st notebook with skip_job = = "01_prepare_fms_rmf_data", key = "skip_job", default = 0, debugValue = 0) and skips execution accordingly if (skip_job == 1): dbutils.notebook.exit("SKIP")

This seems to work fine for my case but I have I minor issue. I want to receive email notification upon Success or failure but not upon skip. The job Status is Success even when I use the above skip approach.

Is there a solution to this? Maybe there is some other command I can use to set the job status as skipped?

@Michael Papadopoulos​ please select below option in job notification settings , that should handle u r caseimage

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I had already tried that flag with no success. The job still sends notification even upon skip of both tasks.

Also the Statuses of both tasks and whole job is Succeeded.

@Michael Papadopoulos​ usually that should not be the case i think, as for task level we have 3 level notifications ( success, failure,start), where as whole job level skip option is available to discard notification . will see if some one from community faced or respond
