An easy way to script, document and backup all SQL Agent job using Powershell. The script will create a SQL job called "Backup SQL Agent Jobs" which will script all job and save the script in the specified location.

USE [msdb]

BEGIN
EXEC @ReturnCode = msdb.dbo.sp_add_category @class=N'JOB', @type=N'LOCAL', @name=N'[Uncategorized (Local)]'
IF (@@ERROR <> 0 OR @ReturnCode <> 0) GOTO QuitWithRollback
