    I don't think you can delete a job from job queue which not belong to you.

    try to recreate user, then remove it.

    Use DBMS_IJOB package, as SYSTEM or SYS

    EXECUTE SYS.DBMS_IJOB.REMOVE (1);

    You could try deleting from SYS.JOB$ directly - but that would be VERY much unsupported if things went bad....

    try this :


    Alter session set current_schema = other_user

    then do whatever you want to other_users's job.

    then alter session back to your own schema.

    If you run that package as SYSTEM or SYS you should be able to... I remembered I did sometime ago and it worked for me.

    I can confirm that with "execute sys.dbms_ijob.remove(<job id>);" you can remove a job that belongs to another schema.

    We had a job a user had created which was taking a good deal of resources so after investigation we decided to remove it. The only way that worked was with the dbms_ijob.remove.
