On top of that, who really cares if job scheduling in being used. Any ERP package has a job scheduler that it uses, why should Oracle's be any different. And if your on 10g or higher then the database does create jobs for AWR & other maintenance tasks. Sheesh, these auditors are getting out of hand.

You could also show them the init.ora parameter JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES, and the scheduler attribute max_job_slave_processes:

"If JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES is 0, DBMS_JOB is disabled, and the maximum number of job slave processes for Scheduler is controlled by the max_job_slave_processes Scheduler attribute." See the 11g documentation
_a003.htm> .

It might also help to show them that noone has been granted the various scheduler privileges

        Will the following 2 SQL's against dba_jobs and dba_scheduler_jobs show auditors that we do not use Oracle Job Scheduling? Is there a better way to convince them?
