Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Maintenance Monitor in Admin Tools
  2. Go to Approved Jobs
  3. See failed information on application purge


There could be two possible causes:

  1. The purge could include job requisitions that are deleted and this will cause the purge to fail.
  2. The user who requested the job is inactive


  1. Restore these job requisitions and run the application purge.  Once completed successfully, then these job requisitions can be deleted again.
  2. Ensure the user requesting the job is an active user
