HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Collecting intercepted jobs periodically for BC-XBP 3.0

With the BC-XBP 3.0 interface, you can configure the job interception collector using an HCL Workload Automation job that periodically retrieves intercepted jobs and relaunches them.

About this task

Because intercepted jobs remain in the Released and then Intercepted status until they are relaunched, you need to use the SAP R/3 interception collector task to collect and relaunch them.
To define an HCL Workload Automation job that collects and relaunches jobs use the following syntax:
DOCOMMAND "TWS_home/methods/r3batch -t HIJ -c ENGINE_NAME_HOSTING_XA -- \
   "-profile_id <profile_ID_number>\""
DESCRIPTION "Collects intercepted jobs on SAP ENGINE_NAME_HOSTING_XA"
The name of the engine workstation hosting the XA workstation with the r3batch access method that communicates with the SAP system.
Name of the HCL Workload Automation job.
Fully qualified path to your HCL Workload Automation installation.
–t HIJ
This is the SAP R/3 task type to run the job interception collector. HIJ stands for Handle Intercepted Jobs.
- profile_id <profile_ID_number>
Specifies the identification number of the interception criteria profile on the SAP system for XBP 3.0.
Name of the HCL Workload Automation user that launches the access method.

The interception collector job runs at periodical intervals; for example, every 10 minutes. It retrieves all the jobs that have been intercepted since the last run of the interception collector, and launches them again according to a template.

Note: If the interception collector is configured for XBP 3.0 job interception, but the XBP 2.0 interface is configured on the SAP system, the collector fails. Ensure the XBP interface versions are synchronized.
