— Using the Job from program_name in Step 1, find information on the job
select job_id, name, description from msdb..sysjobs where job_id = convert(uniqueidentifier, 0x6CDB1221B7584941B63E44C95E805E43)

How to see job owner, Email operator, Event Notification, Email Notification on jobs scheduled?

Using the SELECT statement below one can list notications that occur for jobs scheduled on SQLServer.

SELECT –Job name As JobName,
–Job owner
SUSER_SNAME(sj.owner_sid) As owner,
–Job category e.g. “Database Maintenance”, “Report Server”, “[Uncategorized (Local)]” as Category,
–Operator to be e-mailed (may be NULL) as EmailOperator,
–notification in Event log (notify when job fails, succeeds, always, never)
CASE sj.notify_level_eventlog
WHEN 0 THEN 'Never'
WHEN 1 THEN 'When the job succeeds'
WHEN 2 THEN 'When the job fails'
WHEN 3 THEN 'When the job completes (regardless of the job outcome)'
ELSE ‘UNKNOWN’ END As EventLogNotification,
–e-mail notification (notify when job fails, succeeds, always, never)
CASE sj.notify_level_email
WHEN 0 THEN 'Never'
WHEN 1 THEN 'When the job succeeds'
WHEN 2 THEN 'When the job fails'
WHEN 3 THEN 'When the job completes (regardless of the job outcome)'
ELSE ‘UNKNOWN’ END AS EmailNotification
FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobs sj
–E-Mail Operator
LEFT OUTER JOIN msdb.dbo.sysoperators o ON sj.notify_email_operator_id =
–Job categories
LEFT OUTER JOIN msdb.dbo.syscategories C ON sj.category_id = c.category_id
WHERE –ignore auto-created jobs (Reporting Services schedules) uncomment if you want ignore
— NOT ( LIKE '_____________-____-____-____________') AND
–only enabled Jobs
sj.enabled = 1

Sample Output:
Test,sa,[Uncategorized (Local)],NULL,When the job fails,Never

How to see history of jobs scheduled in SQL Server?

Information on sysjobhistory
Information on sysjobs

— shows job history with the most recent one to show the most recent one with it’s run status
select job_name, run_datetime, run_duration, run_status
select job_name, run_datetime,
SUBSTRING(run_duration, 1, 2) + ':' + SUBSTRING(run_duration, 3, 2) + ':' +
SUBSTRING(run_duration, 5, 2) AS run_duration,
select as job_name,
run_datetime = CONVERT(DATETIME, RTRIM(run_date)) +
(run_time * 9 + run_time % 10000 * 6 + run_time % 100 * 10) / 216e4,
run_duration = RIGHT(‘000000’ + CONVERT(varchar(6), run_duration), 6),
run_status = CASE run_status WHEN 1 Then 'Success'
WHEN 0 Then 'Failure'
WHEN 2 Then 'Retry'
WHEN 3 Then 'Cancelled'
WHEN 4 Then 'In-Progress'
Else 'Unknown: ' + Convert(VARCHAR(2), run_status)
from msdb..sysjobhistory h
inner join msdb..sysjobs j
on h.job_id = j.job_id
where step_id = 0 — show first step
) t
) t
order by run_datetime desc, job_name
