[slurm-users] Extract job information after completion

Sometimes when a slurm job fails I want to see what a user did, getting the command/workdir/stdout/stderr information. I can see that with "scontrol show job <jobid>". However, after the job is done that command doesn't seem to work anymore, saying "invalid job id". I try to use sacct, which seems to save history, but I can only find the "workdir" parameter there, not stdout/stderr/cmd. I tried using the "jobname" field of sacct, but when I use the "wrap" option of sbatch, then jobname only shows the string "wrap" which isn't useful.
My question: is there an easy way for me to get command/workdir/stdout/stderr information after a job has completed? Thanks!
