I have a apex class which implements Schedulable interface, I want to find out whether this class is already scheduled or not? Please help me with SOQL query to find out this.

To find out if a given class is scheduled use an SOQL query like:

SELECT Id, CreatedById, CreatedDate, Status, CompletedDate
    FROM AsyncApexJob
    WHERE ApexClass.NamespacePrefix = :namespace
            AND ApexClass.Name = :className

Where namespace is your namespace (leave out if you are not in a package) and className is the class name string, such as "MyExampleSchedulable".


Best place to start is the Monitor Asynchronous Apex trailheal module. Gives nice SOQL queries, like:

AsyncApexJob jobInfo = [SELECT Status, NumberOfErrors
    FROM AsyncApexJob WHERE Id = :jobID];
  • I don't know jobID, I have only class name or Class Id with me. How do we find out this class is already scheduled in system or not?
