Reporting a Failed Job

 

When your job fails, the best way for us to help you is to be able to locate the job, and trace back to a failure condition. To find your job, we need what's called the "Job Handle".

Locating the Job Handle:

  • Go to the task pane, and find the job(s) that failed.
  • Click on the hyperlink in the "Label" column for each task that failed. It will open a window that shows something like this:

  • For each job that fails, paste that whole text into an email or bug report. The text:
    NGBW-JOB-GARLI_LONESTAR-5825158B8B6C4C16B2C14320FB009E85
    is "the handle". We use the handle to uniquely identify each job, and with it we can troubleshoot efficiently.
