Reporting

Why are expired, old, deleted jobs still showing in the UI?

I am running into an issue where some old jobs that are expired are still showing up in the job activity. They still show as running. But, if you try to stop or delete them again, you get an error that says the job does not exist.

If they had completed normally, they would have been removed already as they roll off after about a month. But some of the broken jobs are about 2 months old.

Thanks for any help.
