A custom SharePoint timer job is not visible in the central admin job definition section.

I have:

  1. Activated feature in the application,
  2. Restarted the SharePoint timer services,
  3. Restarted IIS using Powershell,
  4. Tried activating feature using PowerShell using feature id.

Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application service is running in app server and web front end.

What could be the problem? I checked ULS logs, there is no exception showing.

  • try open CA as administrator and/or with systemaccount

  • Is your feature copied to the Features folder on your server (C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\YOUR_FEATURE_NAME)?

1 Answer 1

  1. If there is any alternate mapping for your site, check the exact Web Application URL in Central Administration.

  2. Deploy the timer job for the same URL.

  3. Restart the SharePoint Timer Service in Services.

  4. Go to Site Collection Features or Site Features and activate the timer job feature.

Then you should see the timer job in the Central Administration.
