HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Killing an SAP job instance

About this task

This section describes how to kill an HCL Workload Automation job that submits either a standard SAP job or an SAP process chain.

To kill an SAP job instance, do the following:

The HCL Workload Automation job status is set to ABEND. The SAP job or process chain is set to canceled in the SAP system.
Note: If you kill a process chain job, the SAP system stops as soon as the process that is currently running completes.


  1. Use the Monitor Workload query of the Dynamic Workload Console to display a list of defined job instances containing the job you want to kill. In the navigation bar at the top, click System Status and Health > Workload Monitoring > Monitor Workload.
  2. In the Monitor Workload input fields enter the engine name, the plan, and any filtering data that helps you filter the selection of jobs (you can also select Edit for a guided selection of filtering criteria) and select Run.
  3. The Monitor Jobs panel is displayed. Select the job instance you want to kill and click More Actions > Kill.
