How do I prevent dbms_job from being re-executed.

Hi,

I have submitted a job through dbms_job.submit package. Suppose, if anything goes wrong , I want the job to be broken and stop from being re-executed.
How do I achieve this?

One way of doing this is , if I see any error, I can use the dbms_job.broken package manually and remove the job from job queue.

But this is not what I am looking for.

 Is there any way that I can achieve this at the same time I submit the job and dont have to do it manually.


Thanks

How about doing this:
1.  Create a job which is not repeating (interval=null).
2.  If the job is successful, submit another job.

Will this work for you?

Thanks,
Ritesh

Try this:

BEGIN SYS.DBMS_JOB.BROKEN('<job_number>',TRUE); END;

Use an exception handler in your job to BREAK the job if an unhandled exception occurrs, other wise  the job will keep resubmitting itself.

You submitted job may look something like this:

PROCEDURE MyJob

  l_job       BINARY_INTEGER;
  l_next DATE;
 
  CURSOR cur_job (b_what IN VARCHAR2) IS
    SELECT job
    FROM user_jobs
    WHERE what LIKE b_what;

BEGIN

  -- check that cursor is closed
  IF cur_job%ISOPEN THEN
    CLOSE cur_job;
  END IF;
 
  -- get job number
  OPEN cur_job ('MyJob');
  FETCH cur_job INTO l_job;
 
  IF cur_job%NOTFOUND THEN  
 
    --- submit the job here
      
      
  END IF;
 
  -- close cursor,
  CLOSE cur_job;

  --- now execute the intended procedure here
  package.procedure('a');
 
EXCEPTION
  WHEN OTHERS THEN
  -- break the job and end gracefully
    SYS.DBMS_JOB.BROKEN(l_job,TRUE);
END;
