Failing SSRS SQL Agent Report Jobs - Removal

Fellow SQL ers,

I ran across some sql agent jobs that appear to have been created by SSRS. I can see the command. It is referencing a db on the server that no longer exists. Looks like someone migrated something but left these jobs "scheduled" and they are failing. The DB it is referencing no longer exists on any of our servers.

Are this jobs safe to Delete without affecting something else in SSRS?

Thx
MG

SSRS will recreate any agent jobs associated with a subscription - when reporting services is restarted. To remove the agent job permanently - you need to find the report and subscription and remove that subscription.

It should be fine. If something odd happens, you can restart reporting services and subscription jobs are checked at this time. If any subscription jobs are needed and not present, they will be created/recreated.
As Williams said, to permanently delete the agent job, you need to delete the subscription.
