Hi all,

Is there a way I could output the username of whoever invoked a SQL job each time it runs? ...and perhaps write it to a table?

I have used suser_name() to output the user that runs each step, but these are all being automatically started by the SQL Agent service account, so obviously that username is all I get.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Matt

You can find this in the job history table.

SELECT  j.name,
jh.run_date,
jh.run_time,
SUBSTRING(jh.message, CHARINDEX('.', jh.message) + 3, CHARINDEX('.', jh.message, CHARINDEX('.', jh.message) + 1) - CHARINDEX('.', jh.message) - 3) AS MiddleMessage
FROM msdb..sysjobhistory jh
JOIN msdb..sysjobs j
ON jh.job_id = j.job_id
WHERE jh.step_id = 0
