» Command: job history

The job history command is used to display the known versions of a particular job. The command can display the diff between job versions and can be useful for understanding the changes that occurred to the job as well as deciding job versions to revert to.

» Usage

nomad job history [options] <job>

The job history command requires a single argument, the job ID or an ID prefix of a job to display the history for.

» General Options

  • -address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the NOMAD_ADDR environment variable if set. Defaults to http://127.0.0.1:4646.

  • -region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the NOMAD_REGION environment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.

  • -no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively, NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLOR may be set.

  • -ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the NOMAD_CACERT environment variable if set.

  • -ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both -ca-cert and -ca-path are specified, -ca-cert is used. Overrides the NOMAD_CAPATH environment variable if set.

  • -client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify -client-key. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_CERT environment variable if set.

  • -client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from -client-cert. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_KEY environment variable if set.

  • -tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if NOMAD_SKIP_VERIFY is set.

  • -token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the NOMAD_TOKEN environment variable if set.

» History Options

  • -p: Display the differences between each job and its predecessor.

  • -full: Display the full job definition for each version.

  • -version: Display only the history for the given version.

  • -json : Output the job versions in its JSON format.

  • -t : Format and display the job versions using a Go template.

» Examples

Display the history showing differences between versions:

$ nomad job history -p e
Version     = 2
Stable      = false
Submit Date = 07/25/17 20:35:43 UTC
Diff        =
+/- Job: "example"
+/- Task Group: "cache"
  +/- Task: "redis"
    +/- Resources {
          CPU:      "500"
          DiskMB:   "0"
          IOPS:     "0"
      +/- MemoryMB: "256" => "512"
        }

Version     = 1
Stable      = false
Submit Date = 07/25/17 20:35:31 UTC
Diff        =
+/- Job: "example"
+/- Task Group: "cache"
  +/- Count: "1" => "3"
      Task: "redis"

Version     = 0
Stable      = false
Submit Date = 07/25/17 20:35:28 UTC

Display the memory ask across submitted job versions:

$ nomad job history -t "{{range .}}\
v{{.Version}}: {{with index .TaskGroups 0}}{{with index .Tasks 0}}{{.Resources.MemoryMB}}{{end}}{{end}}\

{{end}}" example
v2: 512
v1: 256
v0: 256
