LabOps Job Panel View 

To get a more granular view of your job, click on a job's row in either the LabOps mini job panel view or LabOps table view.


The job panel will provide the current job state, current action (or the Assistant banner if Assistance is needed), and job actions.

Below this, there are four main sections:

  1. Activity - includes the current and past activity of the job, including details about Assistants, Errors, and more.
  2. Details - includes information about the creation of the job 
  3. Results - includes any files generated and collected by the Workflow.
  4. Notes - includes a field for notes and a record of all notes.


The activity section will show:

  • Activity: an overview of all the workflow steps that have occurred with the current step the job is on
  • Assistants: List of Assistants that have been completed and any data that may have been gathered
  • Errors: a log of errors that occurred during runtime

The activity timeline will also show you essential information like if someone paused the job, retried the job, and key time stamps of actions. Icons that you may see are: 



The details section includes:

  • Created by: who created the job, or if it is a spawned job, the parent job from which it spawned from
  • Batched Requests: the requests that were batched to create and run this job
  • Request Parameters: details about the request, such as request owner
  • Configuration: workflow parameters and their values

A field to gather notes about the job and show a running record of notes taken. 


Manage Jobs


Depending on the state of the job, you can take specific actions on jobs. To do so, click on the three dots next to the current Workflow action to see the available compatible options. 

Options include:

  • Pause: Pause a running job in its current state 
  • Resume: Resume a paused job
  • Cancel: Abort a job at its current step to prevent it from continuing - this is an irreversible action.
  • Retry Action: Try to re-run an action that is in error - this is only accessible when a job is in error. 
  • Skip Action: Skip an action that is in error - this is only accessible when a job is in error. 
  • Unschedule: Puts a running job into a pending state - the job can be rescheduled to run from the beginning of the Workflow and should only be used in rare cases.
  • Delete: This only applies to requests (pending jobs) that can be removed from the system. 

You can also take action on multiple jobs in the LabOps Table View
