Backfilling historical data
Backfilling is connected to re-running jobs historically of date partitioned data. Say you have a weekly job that collects statistics data and produces a report. You have created this job today and the report is valuable. Now you have an interest in producing said report for each week covering the previous year. You can simply navigate to a job and in the section “Backfills” create a new backfill with a date and time range. All schedules within that range will be executed, one at a time in chronological order.
