Job Scheduler (Requirements)

Modules, Windows And Dialogs > Job Scheduler > Job Scheduler (Requirements)

Specific system privileges are required in order for you to manage the Job Scheduler for connections to Oracle 10g and later.

Job Scheduler system privileges

The system privileges associated with the Job Scheduler (for Oracle 10g and later) are as follows:

System Privilege



Enables you to create jobs, schedules and programs in your own schema.

Note: You can always alter and drop jobs, schedules and programs which you own, even when you do not have the CREATE JOB privilege.


Enables you to create jobs, schedules, and programs in any schema. This effectively gives the grantee the ability to run code as any user so it must be issued with care.


Enables jobs the ability to use programs from any schema.


Enables jobs to run under any job class.


Enables you to create, alter and drop job classes, windows and window groups. It also enables you to purge scheduler logs and modify scheduler attributes.


INIT.ORA configuration file

In order to successfully use the Job Scheduler, you may also need to adjust the settings on your server in the INIT.ORA configuration file to allow use of the DBMS_JOBS package (Oracle 9.2 and earlier) or the DBMS_SCHEDULER (Oracle 10g and later).

The following minimum settings are recommended:

job_queue_processes = 2

job_queue_interval = 10

job_queue_keep_connections = false

(Remember to restart your server to apply these settings.)

Locate In Tree

Modules, Windows And Dialogs > Locate In Tree

When an object is open in an editing window, and you want to see where that object resides in the schema, you can use Locate in Tree to jump to that object’s node in the DB Navigator tree. This action expands all intermediate nodes and displays the object’s details—such as privileges and columns.

Locate in Tree is available from the following windows:

Output Window

Modules, Windows And Dialogs > Output Window

The Output Window displays SQL Navigator messages and server output including Oracle errors.

Interpreting the output display

User Interface Description
Tabbed Pages There are tabs for each session, plus one for general messages not related to any particular session.
