Managing Jobs

Manage jobs in Resource Manager.


For descriptions of job types, lifecycle states, and the default retry policy, see job in the overview page.

Required IAM Policy

Use policies to grant access to jobs in Resource Manager.

To manage jobs, you must be given the required type of access in a policy  written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies.

Administrators: For common policies that give groups access to jobs in Resource Manager, see Manage Stacks and Jobs (Securing Resource Manager).
