The Job History tab lists chronologically all jobs events of your managed instances. SQL Enterprise Job Manager displays an entry each time a job runs. 

On this list you can see the following values:

  • Status - displays the status of each job event: failed, successful, retry, canceled, or unknown. Take into account that this is not the status of the job itself but of each event (every time the job runs).
  • Date time - displays the date and time of each job event, including the time zone. 
  • Duration - shows the duration in hh:mm:ss of each job event (total duration of all steps executed for that job).
  • Instance - displays the name of the SQL Server instance where the job ran.
  • Job Name - shows the name of the respective job.
  • Message - displays additional information of the job event: status, schedule used, last step ran, etc. 

The status of job events are represented with the following icons: Successful, Canceled, Failed, Retry, or Unknown.
