SQL Enterprise Job Manager allows you to see the specific details for a selected Job. This view includes all your job information across all instances associated with it. 

To access this view, click the name of the Job on the Jobs tab and a new page opens displaying your Job Details with the following sections:

Job Alerts

In this section, you can view all alerts related to your job across all instances associated with it. The alerts in this section are ordered by level of severity and grouped by alert rule.

In the Alerts section, you can perform the following actions:

  • Sort by Severity - use this option to order your alerts by severity. SQL Enterprise Job Manager displays four levels of alerts severity, also identified with colors: Critical (red), Warning (yellow), Informational (gray), and OK (green).  
  • Hide Alerts -  select this option if you do not want to see any of the displayed alerts. Use Show Alerts to view all alerts again.

For each alert rule you can view the following options:

  • Show Details - click this option to see the complete list of job event alerts that belong to a specific alert rule. Use Hide Details to display the summarized form of the alert rule. 
  • Dismiss - to ignore the complete alert rule with their associated job alerts.  
  • Collect Data - click this option to get the latest information available on the job alert.

When you choose to Show Details of a specific alert rule, you can see all job events associated with that specific alert rule. For each job event you can:

  • Start Job at Step - use the drop-down options to select a specific step to start the job again.
  • Dismiss - click this option to ignore the job event alert.
  • Collect Data - use this option to get the latest information on the job event alert.

When you Dismiss an alert, it will not be displayed on the alerts section temporarily. SQL Enterprise Job Manager will raise the alert when the alert rule condition of the respective job event is triggered again.
