remove job schedule

Created: 17 Jan 2005 • Updated: 23 May 2010 | 5 comments

This must be obvious but I can't see how to do it!

How do I remove existing jobs from the schedule so they no longer run without actually deleting them?

On the "Job Setup" tab, you can go into the properties of the job and choose the "Schedule" options in the left pane. For the Schedule, just submit the job on hold, choose "run once" (and potentially just cancel it or let it run), or schedule the job for a date in the distant future (depending one what you're trying to do).

If you're simply trying to keep a currently scheduled job from running again, you can just right click on the job on the "Job Monitor" tab, and choose Hold Job. This is probably the easiest way to postpone the job. Be aware though, that once you take it off hold, if it has missed its next scheduled run time, I believe it will begin immediately (once taken off Hold).


You can keep the job from running in 2 ways:

- edit the job and submit the job on hold

- You can change the effective date for the period as required.

We hope this will help.

What I want to do is remove the job from the Schedule all together - I don't want to leave them on hold or scheduled for some date in the future filling up the scheduled window.

The scenario is that I have a number of currently scheduled jobs that I no longer want to run regularly, but may need to run in the future so I don't want to delete them.

I know I could change to schedule to run once, and then cancel the job, but there must be a better method than that.

Its not possible to remove a schedule job without putting it on HOLD or deleting it all together.

One Option: As you have said, You dont want to see the certain job as scheduled but you woud like to retain the sane for future backup.

I suggest you RUN the job as RUN NOW and immediately cancel that job, this make the job stored in the JOB setup and hence you can use this job to run in the future time.

I hope this make sense.

Thanks for the responses. Shame that BE9.0 can no longer allow this which was no problem under BE8.6. Please could you direct a request to your developers to correct this. Thanks.
