Guide to: Archiving and Restoring Jobs

Archived Jobs

In order to declutter your Jobs page, older jobs that are less likely to be accessed will be automatically archived. You will soon also be able to archive jobs manually (contact your CSM for feature timing). Jobs that have been archived can easily be restored should you wish you use them at a later date. Note Archived Jobs are indicated with a folder icon in the UI.

Automatic job archiving will occur on the following jobs:

  • "Finished" Jobs that have not been previously archived and which were completed 90 days ago
  • "Finished" Jobs which have been unarchived for 30 days

Archived jobs are not listed on the Jobs page when viewing All Jobs, but are shown when filtered by Archived Jobs. Select Archived Jobs from the Jobs dropdown filter on the Your Jobs or Team Jobs tabs to view.


Actions that can be performed on Archived Jobs

  • Archived jobs can be copied just like all other jobs.
  • Archived jobs can be permanently deleted.
  • Archived jobs can be restored using the UI (see below) or via API (see Developer Documentation).

Job authors will be able to do the following in the UI:

  • View job design tab
  • View high-level dashboard statisics on the job monitor tab
  • View the results tab
  • Download the job reports

There are multiple ways to restore jobs that have been archived due to inactivity.
