Issue:
Prior to applying patch 8 on PPM 15.2, there were Scheduled and Paused instances of the Datamart Extraction job. However, after applying patch 8, those instances now have a status of Cancelled. 
Resolution:
Patch 5 for PPM 15.2 introduced the following two additional configurable parameters on the Datamart Extraction job:  
  • Extract Only OBS
Specifies that the job extracts only the OBS data if this option is selected.
  • Extract Only Calendars
Specifies that the job extracts only the calendar data if this option is selected.

When upgrading to patch 5 or any later patch, it is expected that the previous scheduled instances of the Datamart Extraction job be cancelled. This is so new instances can be scheduled taking into account these two new parameters. 

Likewise, when upgrading from a version prior to 15.2.0.5 to 15.3 (or later), the job parameters would also change between these two versions, so in this instance the job would also be cancelled, and would need to be rescheduled.
