To keep track of tasks sent to the fabric, the relation between the identity and authorization tokens presented on the Grid side, and their mapping into local credentials (Unix groups, account names, etc), the Job Repository (JR) was developed. Based on a back end ODBC-interface, a database contains this essential information.

The newest version includes an updated database schema which makes the structure easier to understand. This makes it easier to retrieve the required information from the database. The new schema is also extensible. By default the (Computing Element) CE is supported but other services can extend the schema with there service specific information to create a larger base for tracking all (user) actions in a relation way.
