HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Verifying the status of a standard SAP job

About this task

To verify the status of a standard SAP job, perform the following steps:


  1. Click Administration > Workload Design > Manage Jobs on SAP.
  2. In Engine name, select the name of the HCL Workload Automation engine connection from which you want to verify the status of an SAP job.
  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 (...) browse 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 the browse (...) button to search for options files that reside on the specified workstation and select one.
  5. Click Display. The list of available jobs for the specified engine is displayed.
  6. Select the job for which you want to verify the status and click Status. The current status for the SAP job is displayed, as well as the database name where the job is installed.
  7. When you have finished verifying the status for the job, click OK to return to the list of SAP jobs on the workstation specified.
