CockroachDB v22.1 is no longer supported as of November 24, 2023. For more details, refer to the Release Support Policy.

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, and admin users can view all jobs performed across all nodes in the cluster.

To view these details, access the DB Console and click Jobs in the left-hand navigation.

Filter jobs

Use the Status menu to filter jobs by job status.

Use the Type menu to filter jobs by type.

You can toggle between showing the latest 50 jobs or all jobs on the cluster.


Jobs are deleted every 14 days. This interval can be changed via 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.

Use the Jobs list to see your recently created and completed jobs.
