The Get-Job cmdlet gets background jobs from the current session and returns them as objects. The command without parameters will return all jobs in the current session, but you can use additional parameters to specify which jobs you want to retrieve. The Receive-Job command returns the results of a job. You can use this cmdlet to get the job results and then run it in another session to start the job. This method can be useful for locating a specific background process, or a background task.
The Get-Job cmdlet is not intended to be used for jobs in the same workspace as your current session. Instead, it retrieves a set of jobs at once. You can use it to view results from workflow jobs, or to run your own jobs. For more information, see the documentation. The examples below demonstrate how to use this cmdlet to obtain job results from your system. This feature allows you to identify which processes are performing which tasks.
The Get-Job cmdlet can be used to obtain a list of jobs from a particular computer. To retrieve the job results from a specific instance, specify the $InstanceId. The $JobId property contains information about the instance ID. The value of this parameter is unique to this job. Once you know the instance ID, you can use the ‘Get-Job’ command to display the results of multiple jobs.
Besides getting the job results, you can also use the IncludeChildJob parameter to get the child jobs. It works only with custom job types with an EndTime property. It doesn’t work with standard background jobs. It only affects the $JobState parameter. In general, the IncludeChildJob parameter is not needed if the Get-Job command returns a job object.
The Get-Job cmdlet returns the results of jobs. The parameter specifies the instance ID of the job. The $JobState is a string that specifies the state of the job. Then, you can run the command to get the result of a specific process. If the object is in an active state, it means that it is currently in the active state. If it is in an idle state, the value is false.
The Get-Job cmdlet returns background jobs in the current session. By specifying the job instance ID, you can get the name of the job. If you’d like to see the jobs for a specific state, you can use the “child” parameter. If you’d like to get the details about a specific state, the childJobs parameter is optional, but it’s best if you know which states are currently hiring.
The Get-Job cmdlet returns the results as a string or as a DateTime object. By specifying a date, you can use the -Before parameter to get results for a specific job. When a job is completed, the $j variable will reflect its status. Otherwise, it will show the results of the current session. If you want to get the results before a certain date, you can simply pass the -Before parameter to the command.
