I have a created a scheduled job to run on Oracle 11g database everyday night at  8PM. I could I create an email notification so that it will automatically send me an email when the Job finishes (completes its run)?
I attached my scheduled job, which calls an Oracle stored procedure.
name => 'TestJOB', force => TRUE);
DBMS_SCHEDULER.CREATE_JOB(job_name        => 'MyJobName',
                            job_type        => 'STORED_PROCEDURE',
                            job_action      => 'procedurename',
                            start_date      => to_timestamp_tz('01/10/2011 20:00:00 US/Central',
                                                               'mm/dd/yyyy hh24:mi:ss tzr'),
                            repeat_interval => 'FREQ=hourly; INTERVAL=6',
                            enabled         => true,
                            auto_drop       => false,
                            comments        => 'Refreshes SoF tables');

after creating your job,  add a notification for it with

DBMS_SCHEDULER.ADD_JOB_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION

something like this...


BEGIN
 DBMS_SCHEDULER.add_job_email_notification (
  job_name   =>  'MyJobName',
  recipients =>  'youraddress@yourcompany.com',
  events     =>  'job_started, job_succeeded');
END;

if you don't want email when the job starts, only when it finishes

 events     =>  'job_succeeded');

you can also get emailed for errors, then

events     =>  'job_failed');

you can include specific errors to check for with the filter_condition parameter

examples and syntax are in the link above

also note,  the notification procedure is only available in 11gR2 and above.

10g and 11gR1 don't have it, so you would have to implement the email some other way
either as an exception handler within a job, or as a separate job that monitors the other job and emails based on the results of previous executions

Thank you. I am a bit stuck as I could not figure out if my database in 11gR2 (or 11gR1). I do not have DBA privilege.
SQL>SELECT version FROM v$instance;
Says I do not have access to the table.
Is there any other way to find the DB version? However, I know it is of course 11g.

Sorry this is the query I used and getting the same error:

   DBMS_SCHEDULER.ADD_JOB_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION (
    job_name       =>     'MY_LOAD_DATA_JOB',
    recipients      =>     'myemail@yahoo.com',
    events         =>     'job_started, job_succeeded');

you must run the pl/sql procedure from within a pl/sql block


begin
   DBMS_SCHEDULER.ADD_JOB_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION .....
end;

Thank you. I forgot that.

This time I get an error when I compile the above email notification code:
ORA-24098: invalid value <NULL> for EMAIL_SERVER.

How do I specify this value?

I know similar other database in which this EMAIL_SERVER value might be specified as that runs email notification. Is there any query that could let me find out the specified EMAIL_SERVER value in the other database...?

I got this syntax and tried:

BEGIN
DBMS_SCHEDULER.SET_SCHEDULER_ATTRIBUTE (
attribute => 'EMAIL_SERVER',
value => 'remotesmtp.myco.com');
END;

Than it worked.

Thank you all for all your help.
