I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but what account is your agent started as?

the job owner is NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; the service account is NETWORK SERVICE.

in the audit info of who created the data record through the job, it shows NETWORK SERVICE and not SYSTEM.

SQL Jobs run under whichever account the Agent runs. This is why you see Network Service. Is the job not working correctly? You may need to choose an account with the appropriate permissions to run the sql agent.

dodge20, the job is working fine, but the question is regarding the ownership of the job. if it is going to override the owner with the service account, why does it even give us the option to change owners?

If the job owner is an account that is in the sysadmin fixed server role, then your step will be executed under the account used by the Sql Server Agent service.
Otherwise will be executed by the account set as the job owner, no matter who is starting the job.

You can read more about that here.

>>Otherwise will be executed by the account set as the job owner, no matter who is starting the job.

is it possible to force it to run under the one who is 'starting' the job instead of the job owner?

thanks
