That was what I was missing--thanks! 

FYI, looks like it is SYS$USERS (even if you submit the job while connected to a different service, the job still uses SYS$USERS).

there is SERVICE_NAME column in v$session. Is the service name when job is running?

I sent this a few weeks ago and one response said that using dbms_application_info was an option. If I don't want to change the code at all--can someone at least help me identify what service the dbms_job jobs will use? I suspect it uses the SYS$USERS service, but I'm not certain and I'm not certain how to tell. Can someone suggest a way to tell what service a DBMS_JOB is running under?

I have a test environment, but even 10046 won't show the service the DBMS_JOB runs under as far as I can tell. Suggestions welcome.

I'm considering implementing resource consumer groups and having trouble finding any way to place a dbms_job into a particular consumer group. If my groups are mapped using the service_name that the user connected with, is there any way to assign a job to a particular consumer group? That is, without placing a call to DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER into the job? If I map the groups some other way (other than by username), is there a mapping that would handle all dbms_jobs easily?

I know that migrating to DBMS_SCHEDULER is the "right" way forward, but that migration may take some time as the calls to DBMS_JOB are embedded in app code, so we're looking for a good interim solution.
