Finding jobs

The Find Job tool allows you to perform simple searches for jobs by ID, Name, and Description. You can also use advanced queries to find jobs by building Structured Query Language (SQL) statements.


When querying against date values in the database, be sure to use a date format that is compatible. It is recommended that you look at the SQL Reference topic in the desktop help.
