Jobs Page

On this page Carat arrow pointing down

The Jobs page of the DB Console provides details about long-running tasks performed by your cluster. These can include:

All users can see their own jobs. You must be an admin user or a SQL user with the VIEWJOB system privilege to view all jobs performed across all nodes in the cluster.

To view this page, click Jobs in the left-hand navigation of the DB Console.


By default, jobs are deleted every 14 days. You can change this interval using the jobs.retention_time cluster setting.

The Jobs list is designed for you to manage pending work. It is not intended to display the canonical record of all jobs that have run. If you need a historical record of all jobs you have run, you should log this information externally.

Jobs table

Use the Jobs table to see recently created and completed jobs.

Filter jobs

Use the controls to filter jobs:

  • Status: filter jobs by job status.
  • Type: filter jobs by type. Automatic table statistics jobs are not displayed even when the Type menu is set to All. To view these jobs, set Type to Auto-Statistics Creation.
  • Show: toggle between showing the latest 50 jobs or all jobs.

The status line after the filters shows the number of jobs displayed and a message indicating the oldest time (in UTC) that jobs are shown for. The oldest time is calculated as now - the duration of the jobs.retention_time cluster setting, set to 28 days by default.

The table is paginated with 20 jobs per page. Click the page controls following the table to traverse pages.

The following columns are available for each job. Click Columns to select the columns to display in the table.

Column Description

Status Current job status or completion progress.
Job ID Unique job ID. This value is used to pause, resume, or cancel jobs.
User Name User that created the job.
