get last job status

Hello,

How can I modify this query for having the last run job status :
set nocount on; select distinct replace (j.name, ' ', '')  +'|'+ case h.run_status when 0 then 'Failed' when 1 then 'Successful' when 3 then 'Cancelled' when 4 then 'In Progress' end as JobStatus from msdb..sysjobhistory h, msdb..sysjobs j where j.job_id = h.job_id and h.run_date = (select max(hi.run_date) from msdb..sysjobhistory hi where h.job_id = hi.job_id ) and h.run_status <> '4' order by 1

Thanks

I decided to use a temp table for lookup efficiency.

It's vastly trickier than it seems to examine every step of only the last run of each job, because the sysjobhistory table:
1) may be missing a step(s) from the history -- that's why the last two columns are in the output, to easily let you see if the last run history is complete or not.
2) doesn't directly indicate or link job steps from the same job run

I excluded:
    currently executing steps;
    any history older than 6 months;
    disabled jobs.
Naturally change any/all of that if/as needed.



IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb.dbo.#jobhistory') IS NOT NULL
    DROP TABLE #jobhistory
CREATE TABLE #jobhistory (
    job_id uniqueidentifier,    
    row_num int,
    run_date int,
    run_time int,
    step_id int,
    run_status int,
    UNIQUE CLUSTERED ( job_id, row_num )
    )

INSERT INTO #jobhistory (job_id, row_num, run_date, run_time, step_id, run_status )
SELECT
    jh.job_id,
    ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY jh.job_id ORDER BY jh.run_date, jh.run_time, jh.step_id) AS row_num,
    jh.run_date, jh.run_time, jh.step_id, jh.run_status
    --MAX(CAST(run_date AS char(8)) + ' ' + RIGHT('00' + CAST(run_time AS varchar(6)), 6))
FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory jh
WHERE
    --don't consider currently executing steps
    jh.run_status <> '4' AND
    --don't consider any history older than 6 months    
    jh.run_date >= CONVERT(char(8), (DATEADD(MONTH, -6, GETDATE())), 112) AND
    --don't consider disabled jobs
    EXISTS(
        SELECT 1
        FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobs j
        WHERE
            j.job_id = jh.job_id AND
            j.enabled = 1
        )

SELECT
    jh.job_id,
    MAX(CASE WHEN jh.run_status = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS did_job_succeed,
    (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobsteps js WHERE js.job_id = jh.job_id) AS #steps_in_job,
    SUM(CASE WHEN jh.step_id > 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS #steps_in_history_for_last_run
FROM (
    SELECT jh_last_row.job_id, ISNULL(MAX(jh_first_step.row_num), 0) + 1 AS first_step_of_last_job_execution
    FROM (
        SELECT jh_last_step.job_id, MAX(jh_last_step.row_num) AS last_row_num
        FROM #jobhistory jh_last_step
        GROUP BY jh_last_step.job_id
    ) AS jh_last_row_num
    INNER JOIN #jobhistory jh_last_row ON
        jh_last_row.job_id = jh_last_row_num.job_id AND
        jh_last_row.row_num = jh_last_row_num.last_row_num
    LEFT OUTER JOIN #jobhistory jh_first_step ON
        jh_first_step.job_id = jh_last_row.job_id AND
        jh_first_step.step_id >= jh_last_row.step_id AND
        jh_first_step.row_num < jh_last_row_num.last_row_num
    GROUP BY
        jh_last_row.job_id
) AS jh_last_job_execution
INNER JOIN #jobhistory jh ON
    jh.job_id = jh_last_job_execution.job_id AND
    jh.row_num >= jh_last_job_execution.first_step_of_last_job_execution

Try this

;WITH CTE AS (SELECT 
	j.name
	,h.run_status
	,ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY h.job_id ORDER BY h.run_date DESC) rn
FROM
	msdb..sysjobhistory AS h
	INNER JOIN msdb..sysjobs AS j
		ON j.job_id = h.job_id
WHERE
	h.run_status <> 4
	AND step_id = 0 )



SELECT 
    REPLACE(c.name, ' ', '') + '|' + CASE c.run_status
                                       WHEN 0 THEN 'Failed'
                                       WHEN 1 THEN 'Successful'
                                       WHEN 3 THEN 'Cancelled'
                                       WHEN 4 THEN 'In Progress'
                                     END AS JobStatus
FROM 
	CTE c
WHERE
	c.rn = 2
ORDER BY
	1

Depending on what you need to do, this could be far trickier than it seems at first.

For jobs that have multiple steps, what status do you want to show if they're different?  Say, step 1 succeeds but step 2 fails.  I'd expect if any step "failed" you'd want to show "failed", but I need to be sure.

Did you try mine?  

Also, I noticed that in your case statement you have a value of 4 for "In Progress" but you are removing that from your results.  If you want it to show up you'll have to remove the "run_status <> 4" line.

CORRECTION:

I think:
    MAX(CASE WHEN jh.run_status = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS did_job_succeed,
should be:
    MIN(CASE WHEN jh.run_status = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS did_job_succeed,
which would mean "the job succeeded (only) if ALL steps succeeded, otherwise it did not succeed".

Ok, thanks but I have tested the first query.

Scott PletcherSenior DBACommented:
Yeah, I did too.  Sorry, the MAX() just didn't look right, but it may actually be :-) .

Ok, thanks I have not see this case when I have tested the script.
