    Viewing the Details of a Job in Security Director

    You can view the details of a job, which allows you to view information about the job at a quick glance on one page, from the Job Management page.

    To view the details of a job:

    1. Select Monitor > Job Management.

      The Job Management page appears.

    2. Double-click the job for which you want to view the details. Alternatively, select the job and from the More or right-click menu, select View Job Details.

      The Job Details page appears. The fields displayed vary depending on the job:

      • For a Discover Network Elements job, the IP Address and Hostname fields are displayed.
      • For some jobs, the details of the job are displayed in a table. For example, for device discovery jobs, the device targets and their statuses are displayed; for network resynchronization jobs, the device IP addresses and their status are displayed.
      • For some jobs, like Export Roles, Resync Network Elements, and so on, you can export the job details.
      • For some jobs, you can retrigger the failed job or retry the job on failed targets and you can schedule jobs to run immediately or later.

      Table 1 describes some of the fields on the Job Details page.

    3. Click OK.

      You are returned to the Job Management page.
