Viewing job details

If you want more information about a job than you can retrieve by listing jobs, you can view all of the details for a single job. You can view details for jobs that haven't yet finished or jobs that finished within the last 90 days. In addition to the information returned in a job list, a single job's details include other items, such as:

  • The operation parameters

  • Details about the manifest

  • Information about the completion report (if you configured one when you created the job)

  • The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the user role that you assigned to run the job

By viewing an individual job's details, you can access a job's entire configuration. To view a job’s details, you can use the Amazon S3 console or the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI).
