SharePoint timer job executor
This is the main screen of the SharePoint timer job executor utility. Site collection URL is necessary in order to acquire the content database id for the job. The number of jobs in the drop down list can be limited by specifying the fully qualified assembly name of the Job object. Click the “Populate” button to populate the Pick the Job drop down list.
Pick the job to execute and click on the “Execute” button. At this stage if there is a breakpoint set on the execute method of the job and if the utility’s executable is attached to the debugger, the custom job can be stepped through. Happy debugging!
The status pane will display a message on successful execution or an exception with the complete call stack trace in case of failure.
