Manage Timer Jobs with PowerShell

In this small post lets see how you can configure Time Jobs using PowerShell. Lets say you want to enable “Activity Feed Job” which is by default “Disabled” on the Server.

a) First run below command to Get the job definition like Name, status, GUID


get-sptimerjob | sort-object name | where {$_.Name -match “ActivityFeedJob”}



Note down the Name of the job. Usually it will be <<User Profile Service Name>>_ActivityFeedJob

b) Run below command to enable Time job


Enable-SPTimerJob -Identity <<Name of Job captured in step a>>

Set-SPTimerJob “upa_ActivityFeedJob” -schedule “Every 30 minutes between 0 and 59”
