Retrieves a list of all runs of a specified SQL Server Maintenance Plan scheduled job

Due to the fuzziness of the relationship between the data for Jobs and Maintenance Plans in the MSDB database, the Jobs portion of the data (including extended logging details) has been omitted from this code. I haven't really yet found a way to reliably join the 2 sets of data

** NOTE: This code was written for SQL 2005 and greater. There are slightly different views for obtaining data from SQL 2000, or for obtaining data in SQL 2005+ that has been subjected to an upgrade from SQL 2000. While upgrading maintenance plans generally works, I have always found it beneficial in the long term to recreate them from scratch. The feature set is better, and there are some tasks that are not 100% happy working across editions. I have therefore not included versions of the code that support SQL 2000 version maintenance plans.


Stored Procedure:

DROP PROC usp_GetMaintPlanJobRunDetails





Purpose: To list a single SQL Agent scheduled job and

the historic run details if they exist.

The Job_ID passed as a parameter determines the job

to be displayed.

Job_ID was used ratehr than name as the name can be changed

through the GUI but the Job_ID remains the same,

and it was originally intended that this SP be called

from an SSRS report using click-through to a sub-report (so no need

to actually type the GUID)

History: 22 July 2012 - Intial Issue

24 July 2012 - ChillyDBA - removed the joins to the udf_GetMSDBJobList TVF

as the joining between Jobs and Plans executions is a little fuzzy - the plan

history structure has subplan_id and task_detail_id as the keys, whereas jobs have

job_id and step_uid. Had to settle for just getting all the task details related to one

job_id. There is no real method of retrieving the extended logging for a maintplan task

that I could find.
