Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to Home > Jobs

2. Submit the Datamart Extraction job on an immediate mode

3. This goes on a "Processing" state

4. Also submit the Delete Investments job on a immediate mode

5. This goes on "Waiting" status, because it is incompatible to the Datamart Extraction.

6. The Datamart Extraction job completes

7. Check the Delete Investments job status


Expected Result: The Delete Investments job to go on "Processing" status, because the incompatible job that was running has now completed.

Actual Result: The Delete Investments job goes into "Scheduled" status and does not run 


The JS Heart Beat job in not scheduled on the environment.

The query below will tell you if the job is scheduled to be run.

select job_id,, sj.is_visible
from CMN_SCH_JOBS sj
    inner join CMN_SCH_JOB_DEFINITIONS sjd on
    and sjd.job_code='job_check_heart_beat'

If no results are returned the job has possibly been deleted.
