HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Business scenario

About this task

You might want to configure your HCL Workload Automation scheduling activities based on the schedule calendar in your SAP R/3 system. To do this, use the r3batch export function to export the SAP R/3 calendar definitions into a file whose format is compatible with the HCL Workload Automation composer command line. Based on the parameters you specify, you create a file that contains only the SAP R/3 calendar definitions that meet your scheduling requirements. Use this file as input for the composer add command, to import the calendar definitions into the HCL Workload Automation database. Your HCL Workload Automation and SAP R/3 calendars are now synchronized.

To keep the HCL Workload Automation and SAP R/3 calendar definitions synchronized and avoid duplicating data maintenance in the two environments, you can schedule to export the calendar definitions from SAP R/3 and import them to HCL Workload Automation on a regular basis using a dedicated job.
