Write a scheduled saved search with an illegal eval statement or a macro that doesn't exist? That will then run and create a job failure - is that what you wanted?

Thanks @bowesmana .. that works fine. 

@richgalloway .. i would like to run a search which will fail. 

 

Let me give more info.. in our clustered environment, at random times, user's search queries status in JOBS say "failed", but still continuous to run for very long time.. even for weeks. 

is there any way to clear these "failed jobs" please.

@bowesmana gave a few good suggestions to create a job that will fail.

Search _internal to find failed jobs.

Kill a failed job at Activities->Jobs and then click the Stop icon for the appropriate job.

Suggestions for what, creating a failed job or searching for one?  What do you consider "failed"?
