Managing Jobs

 

Edge Services Director enables you to view and manage jobs. You can view the status of completed jobs and cancel the jobs that are scheduled to execute at a later time or jobs that are in progress.

The Job Management page, accessible as a System task, enables you to view and manage all jobs. In addition, Edge Services Director enables you to view special pre-filtered versions of this page from various other tasks, such as View Discovery Status or View Image Deployment Jobs. These pages contain the same fields (although some fields might be hidden) and have the same functionality as the Job Management page, but they list only those jobs relevant to particular tasks.

To display the Job Management page:

  1. Click System on the Edge Services Director banner.
  2. Select Manage Jobs from the Tasks pane. The Job Management page appears.
  3. To view the details of a job, select a row and click Show Details or double-click a row.
  4. To cancel a scheduled job, select a job that is scheduled for a later time or a job that is in progress and click Cancel.

The fields in the Job Management page are described in Table 1. To view any hidden column, keep the mouse on any column heading and select the down arrow and then click Columns. Select the check box to display the hidden columns.

Note

Details of jobs initiated from Edge Services Director will be available only from Edge Services Director. These jobs will not be listed in the Job Management pane in Junos Space platform and vice-versa.
