Never say Never again

Categories: Administration, Cronacle, RunMyJobs - Tags: , , ,

During the task of deleting some Application(s), with related JobDefintions/JobChains I detected that there are related jobs with the status “Never”. I could not delete the Application, so first of all remove these related jobs!

Find jobs with status Never

How can I find jobs with the status “Never”? Simple, use the Job Monitor and search for the status Never. Use the “IntelliSearch” function in the Searchbox, by entering “s:Never”. See image below.
Never say Never again
The notation “s:never” stands for “Search for status Never”.

Find explanation for status Never

When there are jobs found, you can find the explanation for this status, by hovering over the queue name.
Never say Never again
In this case the used queue has no Process Server connected, so the job will/can Never be executed.

This situation can be created, by removing a Process Server. A JobDefinition can still be submitted, but will get the status Never. The used queue can be selected by a Operator, but also the queue can be defined as the “DefaultQueue” for a JobDefintion.

Cancel job

The get rid of the Job(s), we want to remove the Application…., you can cancel them. Then these jobs have a final job status and can be removed.


It’s possible that there is a configuration change in Process Serves or queues, during the live cycle of your Cronacle infrastructure. There for it’s wise to check periodically if there are jobs with the status “Never”.

Never say never again. Always be “in control” of your jobs.
