Delete Job

When you delete a job deleting a job you may also:

Delete associated raw hit/file data
If you delete the raw hit / file data, it will be removed from the database. Once the job has been deleted, there is no way to get the raw data from the UI. However, if you are doing your own reporting using SQL queries from the database directly, you may wish to delete the job, but leave the raw data.

Delete associated reports & messages
Deleting associated reports and messages will remove any reports or messages from the database. You may wish to retain the information from the reports if you intend to make comparisons between jobs (for example, for remediation purposes).

If you just wish to delete the job, but leave the raw hit/file data and associated reports and messages, click Delete without clicking either box, and the job will be removed from the list of jobs. All raw data, reports, and messages will be retained.
