Need to control the number of retries when a job fails and when it retries (not the pre-calculated escalation hierarchy employed internally). Found the Ashley sample for the custom retry filter but it is riddled with obsoletes.


  1. is there a flow chart which outlines the complete flow of the state changes/retries/time to retry?
  2. my job retry information is different by job id (will implement a behavior class for exhaustion and keep-alives, and even possibly by instance, how difficult to use database calls in the filter?
  3. can the filter be added utilized and leave the default filter in place?
  4. who supports the 1500/year contract?
