job periodic force command requires a single argument, specifying the ID
of the job. This job must be a periodic job. This is used to immediately run a

By default, on successful job submission the command will enter an interactive monitor and display log information detailing the scheduling decisions and placement information for the forced evaluation. The monitor will exit after scheduling has finished or failed.
When ACLs are enabled, this command requires a token with the
capability for the job's namespace. The
list-jobs capability is required to
run the command with a job prefix instead of the exact job ID. The
capability is required to monitor the resulting evaluation when

Force the evaluation of the job
example, monitoring placement:
$ nomad job periodic force example ==> Monitoring evaluation "54b2d6d9" Evaluation triggered by job "example/periodic-1555094493" Allocation "637aee17" created: node "a35ab8fc", group "cache" Allocation "637aee17" status changed: "pending" -> "running" (Tasks are running) Evaluation status changed: "pending" -> "complete" ==> Evaluation "54b2d6d9" finished with status "complete"
Force the evaluation of the job
example and return immediately:
$ nomad job periodic force -detach example Force periodic successful Evaluation ID: 0865fbf3-30de-5f53-0811-821e73e63178
