Jobs skipping to nth retry


Sometimes when our jobs retry they seem to skip retry attempts and go straight to some nth retry. In the below example the job goes through states Created → Enqueued → Processing → Failed → Scheduled (retry 4/10).

What has happened to retries 1 through 3?


Make sure you don’t have any job filter messing with job parameters. It looks like the job is initially created with RetryCount parameter set to 3.

I’ll take a look, but the screenshot was just an example. I’ve also seen it skip to the 5th, 6th, 8th etc
