Possible status of background jobs
- Scheduled:- You have defined the program name and
variant but not defined start condition like Start Date, End Date ,
Frequency etc. That means you have not defined when job should be
scheduled in system.
- Released:- All required criteria are fulfilled for job definition. Start condition is must for the job to be in release status.
Ready:- All the required conditions are met to run the job in a background workprocess. But job scheduler has put the job in the queue because it is waiting for background workprocess to be free.
Active:- Job has started running in the background. We cannot change the status of the job once it is in Active status.
Finished:- Job is executed successfully. It means desired task is competed without any error.
Cancelled:- There are two possibilities for this. Administrator has forcefully cancelled the job or there might be some issue with job. You can investigate this from Job logs.
