SCOM 2016 Maintenance Schedules – The Execute Permission Was Denied For Object ‘sp_help_jobactivity’

Problem

Attempting to automate some maintenance schedules using the new SCOM 2016 functionality and received the following error:

The Execute Permission Was Denied For Object ‘sp_help_jobactivity’.

Fix

Assign  the following rights for the SCOM Data Access Service account (SDK service) against the msdb database:

  • SQLAgentOperatorRole
  • SQLAgentReaderRole
  • SQLAgentUserRole
