HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Create the criteria profile

A criteria profile contains the definition of the criteria you want to set for logging raised events.

About this task

Create a criteria profile, Event profile 1, of type, Event History, to contain the criteria hierarchy.


  1. In the portfolio, click Administration > Workload Design > Manage SAP Criteria Profiles.
  2. In Engine name, select the name of the HCL Workload Automation engine connection from which you want to work with SAP jobs.
  3. In Workstation name, type the name of the workstation where the SAP job runs. This is the workstation with the r3batch access method that communicates with the remote SAP system. If you do not know the name of the workstation, click the Lookup Workstations icon to enter your filter criteria and click Search. If you enter a string representing part of the workstation name, it must be followed by the asterisk (*) wildcard character. Both the question mark (?) and asterisk (*) are supported as wildcards. You can also simply use the asterisk wildcard character (*) to display all workstations. Optionally, specify any of the other search criteria available and click Search. From the results displayed, select the workstation and click OK.
  4. In Options file, specify an options file that resides on the specified workstation. Each workstation can have one or more options files that can be used to customize the behavior of the r3batch access method, except for extended agent workstations, where only one options file can exist and therefore does not need to be specified. For the workstation specified, enter the file name of the options file or click pick icon to search for options files that reside on the specified workstation and select one.
  5. Click Go.
  6. From the Criteria Manager main view, click New to create a criteria profile.
  7. Select Event History as the type of criteria profile you want to create.
  8. Enter descriptive text that enables you to easily identify the criteria profile in the table of criteria profiles. Type Event profile 1. Avoid using special characters such as, < (less than), > (greater than), or the ' (apostrophe) in this field.
  9. Click Save.


The criteria profile is displayed in the list of criteria profiles and it is not yet active.

What to do next

Next, begin building the criteria hierarchy. The criteria profile is the container for the criteria hierarchy.
