    Viewing Jobs

    The Job Management inventory page displays all jobs that have been scheduled to run or have run from Junos Space Network Management Platform or other Junos Space applications. Scheduled and completed jobs appear in tabular format on the Job Management page. By default, jobs appear sorted by the Scheduled Start Time column. You can also sort by other columns on this page by clicking the appropriate column header. You can search for a particular job by entering the search criteria in the Search field.

    For more information about how to manipulate inventory page data, see Junos Space User Interface Overview in the Junos Space User Interface Guide.

    To view jobs:

    1. On the Junos Space Platform UI, select Jobs > Job Management.

      The Job Management page appears, displaying all jobs in tabular format. The fields displayed on the Job Management page are described in Table 1.

    2. (Optional) Double-click a job entry to view the details for the selected job.

      The Job Details page appears. This page displays additional fields not displayed on the Job Management page.

      The Description column displays a View Details link if the job failed. Click the link to view why the job failed.

      The fields displayed on the Job Details page vary depending on the job. In the case of a Resync Network Elements job, the Job Details page displays the IP Address and Hostname fields, whereas for a Stage Script job, the Job Details page displays the Script Version and Script Name fields. Table 2 lists some of these fields.

      Currently, the jobs triggered for the following tasks exhibit this behavior:

      • Deleting scripts
      • Deleting a device
      • Resynchronizing network elements
      • Backing up configuration files
      • Deleting configuration files
      • Disabling scripts on devices
      • Enabling scripts on devices
      • Removing scripts from devices
      • Staging scripts on devices
