    We are working on a preview of the Split-Merge capabilities that allow you to host the library in your own service or application. This library has a get-status call. Please contact me directly at ddove@microsoft.com if you are interested in the preview.

    Elastic jobs is the SQL Agent replacement for Azure SQL Database. While the current Public Preview is a customer-hosted solution and doesn't support a T-SQL interface to create and manage jobs, a new Private Preview of Elastic jobs is available to any customer ready to try it out and it s not only integrated as a feature directly in Azure SQL Database but it also has a T-SQL interface support for creating and managing jobs to reduce the friction of migrating from SQL Agent to Elastic jobs. Please send email to SaaSFeedback@microsoft.com to sign-up for the Private Preview.

    Elastic job is not limited to Elastic pools. This was just a Portal limitation in the initial Public Preview. We have re-architected Elastic job to integrate the feature directly in SQL Database and therefore is no longer dependent on other Azure services. Please contact me directly if you are interested in participating in the new Private Preview, we will be completely re-doing the Portal and jobs will have access to all types of target group member types through the Portal. ddove(at)Microsoft(dot)com

    For the existing Public Preview, you can schedule this capability via PowerShell, but I completely understand the desire for ease of use from the Portal. We are currently re-architecting Elastic jobs to be a feature directly integrated into Azure SQL DB as a feature of the service. We are currently in Private Preview with the new capability which doesn't require the customer to host the other Azure services. If interested in joining the Private Preview, please contact me directly ddove(at)microsoft(dot)com. Currently the Private Preview exposes a sprocs for creating and managing jobs, but we will be redesigning the Portal (to create and manage jobs including specifying schedules) and providing PowerShell and REST APIs.

    Yes, I agree this is a ask that is valid, especially in consideration of Elastic pools and high query DTU utilization. I have added this request to our internal feature tracking list.

    Btw the current default behavior is 100 parallel job executions, therefore if you have larger # of DB per pool, then you will have some normalization.
