How to make user to view they jobs in sql 2005

i tried to make user able to see their own jobs in sql 2005. First thing you need to assign job owner as user’s account.

Second thing, sql 2005 server has some new server roles (on MSDB database user only!) for managing sql agent stuff. Here is the screenshot:

With SQL Server 2005, a user must be a member of one of the new fixed database roles or a member of the sysadmin fixed server role to use SQL Server Agent. When users who are not members of one of these roles are connected to SQL Server in SQL Server Management Studio, the SQL Server Agent node in Object Explorer is not visible. After this basic introduction let us identify what are the specific uses of each role.


This is the least privileged role among new three new fixed server roles. This role has permissions only on operators, local jobs, and job schedules. These types of users can only view the operator but they can’t create, modify or delete operators. They cannot change job ownership to gain access to jobs that they do not already own. SQLAgentUserRole members can view a list of available proxies only in the Job Step Properties dialog box of SQL Server Management Studio. These users cannot delete job history.


SQLAgentReaderRole has all the options that SQLAgentUserRole has. In addition, it does have permissions to view the list of available multiserver jobs, their properties, and their history. Members of this role can also view the list of all available jobs and job schedules and their properties, not just those jobs and job schedules that they own.


SQLAgentOperatorRole is the most privileged of the SQL Server Agent fixed database roles. It includes all the permissions of SQLAgentUserRole and SQLAgentReaderRole. Members of this role can also view properties for operators and proxies, and enumerate available proxies and alerts on the server. SQLAgentOperatorRole members have additional permissions on local jobs and schedules. They can execute, stop, or start all local jobs, and they can delete the job history for any local job on the server.
