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 JobServer object exposes a JobHistoryFilter object. The JobHistoryFilter object does not represent a Microsoft SQL Server component. It is used to control JobServerobject methods. If used as a parameter to the EnumJobHistory method, a JobHistoryFilter object constrains the output of the method. If used with the PurgeJobHistory method, the JobHistoryFilter object restricts the scope of the method.
