By default, members of the sysadmin fixed server role can execute this stored procedure. Other users must be granted one of the following SQL Server Agent fixed database roles in the msdb database:

  • SQLAgentUserRole

  • SQLAgentReaderRole

  • SQLAgentOperatorRole

For details about the permissions of these roles, see SQL Server Agent Fixed Database Roles.

Members of SQLAgentUserRole can only view information for jobs that they own.

The following example returns information, including last-run information, about the NightlyBackups job.

USE msdb ;
GO

EXEC dbo.sp_help_jobserver
    @job_name = N'NightlyBackups',
    @show_last_run_details = 1 ;
