SQL Agent History on Azure SQL Managed Instances

Kenneth Fisher goes back in time:

The defaults for saving SQL Agent Job history are ok (at best), so you should probably check and update them if needed. Sadly, if you are using a Managed Instance this isn’t an option.

SQL Managed Instance currently doesn’t allow you to change any SQL Agent properties because they are stored in the underlying registry values.

That’s a real kick in the pants. Still, Kenneth shows us (via Jovan Popovic) a workaround to store the job history someplace else.
