Scheduler Job Name?


Is there going to be the ability to add a name to a job? Right now, the only way to identify one job from another is to look at the PL/SQL code.



select * from dba_jobs;

Could you say more about this question?
There is Job_name in the job list and in the wizard. Default name is JOB$_XX but you can name it as you want.

In old jobs (dbms_job) there wasn’t name only way to recognize job was col “What”.

In dbms_scheduler you have job_name col.

select * from dba_scheduler_jobs;

I’m not seeing it. Attached is what I see in my Job list. There is an auto-generated job #, but no name.
The Wizard (pressing the New button) pops up directly into the PL/SQL edit field. It never asks for a name or anything.
