HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

SAP Process Integration (PI) Channel jobs

Define SAP Process Integration (PI) Channel jobs to control communication channels between the Process Integrator and a backend SAP R/3 system.

In an SAP environment, communication channels are used to convert documents. A sender communication channel can be opened and closed and a receiver channel can be stopped and reactivated as needed. You can control these communication channels by using the HCL Workload Automation SAP PI Channel plug-in and defining SAP PI Channel jobs.

You then schedule SAP PI Channel jobs with HCL Workload Automation to take full advantage of the HCL Workload Automation scheduling and automation functions to manage jobs.

You can manage these jobs both in a distributed and in a z/OS environment, by selecting the appropriate engine.
