As a user, I can gain insights into how long jobs were waiting before being processed.
The job log contains information about when a job was locked and if a lock expired.
- Lock event is written to the job log.
- Lock events can be fetched via Java, REST, and Open API
- Documentation exists.
In the history tables for external tasks and jobs, it would be nice to be able to see entries for when an external task or job was locked. Currently, we can only see when these are created, completed, failed, deleted.
This is useful because it would allow us to report on how long a task or external job was waiting separately from its actual processing time.
