OnFailAction Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The OnFailAction property controls the behavior of a SQL Server Agent job when the referenced step fails execution.

object

An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

Description

SQLDMOJobStepAction_/GotoNextStep

3

Continues execution at the next sequential step.

SQLDMOJobStepAction_/GotoStep

4

Continues execution at the next identified step.

SQLDMOJobStepAction_/QuitWithFailure

2

Stops job execution, reporting failure.

SQLDMOJobStepAction_/QuitWithSuccess

1

Stops job execution, reporting success.

SQLDMOJobStepAction_/Unknown

0

Job step logic is unassigned for the referenced job step.

On failure of a job step, SQL Server Agent can stop the job (reporting success or failure), or if the job has more than a single step, it can attempt to execute the next step or another step in the job.

When using SQLDMOJobStepAction_/GotoStep to direct execution to a specific step, set the OnFailStep property to identify the job step executed on failure.
