4 thoughts on “Changing SQL Server Agent Jobs Ownership: Who should own SQL Server Agent Jobs

  1. so with being said jobs should be under ‘sa’ account…I totally agree with that…

    but i have some BI jobs…that i want non-admin(my developer) can edit…

    but if the job is owned by ‘sa’ he can’t edit it…it has to be under his account so he can edit it…

    do we have a solution to that?


    • It is a bad practice that developers are allowed to modify the production jobs. Unfortunately, the only workaround for your situation is that grant developers temporary sysadmin and revoke it after they modified the jobs
