Databricks Workflow UI- Missing Data in Last Run Column

Hello,

I am having a pretty major problem with the Databricks Workflows UI- when I look at the list of jobs, the "Last Run" column does not have any data in it. This is kind of a big problem because now I don't have a good way of getting visibility into jobs that have failed recently. I have never had this problem before, and it has always shown data in that column until last night. Unfortunately, we do not have a premium support plan so we can't make a support request for this. What should I do?

    You may need to change the brower or clear the cache or open your browser's Developer Toolsand go to the Network page Reload the Databricks page. Check if there are any failed network requests, especially those associated with fetching job runs. Any errors here could give a clue as to what's going wrong.

    You can also use the Databricks REST API to fetch job runs :

     import requests
         
         DOMAIN = '<YOUR-DATABRICKS-WORKSPACE-DOMAIN>'
         TOKEN = 'Bearer <YOUR-PERSONAL-ACCESS-TOKEN>'
         
         response = requests.get(
             f'https://{DOMAIN}/api/2.0/jobs/runs/list',
             headers={'Authorization': TOKEN}
         )
         runs = response.json()['runs']
         for run in runs:
             print(run['job_id'], run['start_time'])
    

    You can also check the logs of any clusters that were running these jobs. Sometimes, issues can arise from cluster-side errors that propagate to the UI.

    As a last resort, try restarting your Databricks workspace. Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve unexplained glitches.

    If the problem persists don't hesitate to contact the support team.

    Clearing the browser cache worked (I think) or the issue just resolved itself. Thanks so much!
