Stopping a job that is running
After you assign a software configuration to user accounts or change an existing software configuration that you already assigned to user accounts, the BlackBerry® Administration Service creates a job to deliver BlackBerry® Device Software, BlackBerry Java® Applications, or application settings to BlackBerry devices. If you assign an IT policy to user accounts or change an existing IT policy, a job sends the IT policy changes to BlackBerry devices. If you want to make changes to a job that is running, you can stop a job.
When you stop a job, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server does not process the remaining tasks in the job, and the BlackBerry Administration Service changes the scheduled start time for the job to the following day. The job returns to a ready to run status. You can make changes to the start time, priority, and distribution settings of the job. If you do not change the start time for the job, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server delivers the job on the following day using the default job schedule settings. When the job starts again, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server processes the remaining tasks in the job.
If you want to delete a job, change the start date of the job to a date that exceeds the job failure period that you configured in the job schedule settings. The default job failure period is 30 days.
