All Jobs

The All Jobs page within the Protect > MS-SQL servers page in the Management Console displays a list of all backup, restore, and log request SQL jobs. This page shows the progress of each SQL job. Job details are available for all jobs where you can see the summary of a job and the logs associated with it.

To access the MS-SQL servers Jobs page, perform the following tasks:

  1. Log in to the Management Console.
  2. Click Protect > MS-SQL servers. Note that if the All Organizations menu is enabled, you have to first select an organization that has the SQL server and then click Protect > MS-SQL servers.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, click Jobs. The right pane displays the following data:
Field Description
Job ID A unique identification number associated with the job.

Backup Set Name of the SQL backup set for which the job was created.
Start time The time when the job started.
End time The time when the job ended.
Status The status of the job. For more information, see Job Status.


You can filter jobs by Job Type, Status, and Started in.


You can filter jobs by the following Job Types:

  • Log Request

You can filter jobs by Status:

  • Queued
  • Running

    Note: You can choose a specific date range.

The Job ID and the Backup Set values are clickable. Clicking the Job ID value for a SQL job takes you to the job details page. Clicking the value in the Backup Set column takes you to the backup set details page. 

From the Jobs page within the Protect > MS-SQL servers page, click the Job ID of the job whose details you want to view. The jobs details page is divided into the Details tab, and the Logs tab.

Customize table columns

You can customize the table columns using the Customize Table Columns icon .

This will give a list of the columns on that page. You can display a particular column, hide unnecessary columns to make the UI more spacious, and move a column to reorder the table. 

Note: The column configuration persists across sessions in the same browser.
