When I edit and try to save an Apex class, I get the following message:

Compile Error: This schedulable class has jobs pending or in progress at line 11 column 8

How can I fix this?

The reason for this error is because your apex class is used under scheduler class. You need to delete your scheduler job and recreate after the compilation.

  • yes i do that things working fine.. if the class is scheduler class then scheduler job itself create?? Jul 28, 2015 at 14:11
  • Yes, all the scheduler class generate a job after the execution. If you deleted the job, only need run the class and you will have again the job in the scheduler view. Jul 29, 2015 at 6:59

To see a list of scheduled apex jobs go to Setup->Monitoring->Scheduled Jobs. This list also includes other scheduled jobs, i.e. dashboard/report freshes and analytic snapshots. You can create a list view to just scheduled Apex. The Apex Jobs monitoring section will only list @future and batch methods.

i got the solution. we can delete the scheduled job. because it need only run the class . and we can invoke the scheduler class in apex scheduler . that automatically generate the schedule job ..


As per Salesforce help article https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=000323577&type=1 this can also happen "When editing a class being called by a class that is called in the execute() method, in other words, a dependent class." which makes it a lot more difficult to find out the dependent schedulable class / scheduled job.

However, metadata API based deployment https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.220.0.api_meta.meta/api_meta/file_based_zip_file.htm is able to work around this problem and make changes to the class.
