HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Defining SAP jobs

You must define some jobs to be able to run jobs on an SAP workstation from HCL Workload Automation.

To define and manage jobs on an SAP workstation from HCL Workload Automation, you must define the following:
Jobs in SAP that you want to run under HCL Workload Automation control
You can define these jobs using standard SAP tools or using the Dynamic Workload Console.
Jobs in HCL Workload Automation that correspond to the jobs in SAP
The HCL Workload Automation job definitions are used in scheduling and defining dependencies, but the SAP jobs are actually run.
You can define SAP job definitions from the Dynamic Workload Console and then have HCL Workload Automation launch the jobs in SAP R/3 using jobs defined on the following workstations that support the r3batch access method:
  • An HCL Workload Automation extended agent workstation. A workstation that is hosted by a fault-tolerant agent or master workstation.
  • A dynamic agent workstation.
  • A dynamic pool.
  • A z-centric workstation.
You can manage your SAP environment from both:
  • An HCL Workload Automation distributed environment
  • An IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS environment.
The SAP job definitions can reference the following types of SAP jobs:
  • Standard R/3
  • Business Warehouse Process Chains
  • Business Warehouse InfoPackages

For information about Business Warehouse Process Chains and Business Warehouse InfoPackages, see Using Business Information Warehouse.
