Easy Way Of Export Selective Jobs From Repository

Requirement : Export selected Jobs from  Repository.

We can export the jobs by selecting individual job from repository but it takes much time to export bundle of jobs from repository.

By following below steps we can export selected jobs from repository in short time in smart way.

Step 1 :

Take the list of job details in excel and remove duplicates(If sheet contain duplicate job names) and append comma(,) end of every row except last row, append semicolon(;) end of last row.


Step 2:

Export random project from repository excluding all other objects.


Step 3 :

Edit the exported ATL in notepad  and change project name Sample to Export and paste list of jobs from your excel by replacing the old job names in note pad.

Before editing:


After editing:

* Change Project name to Export

*Paste list of job from excel in ATL by replacing old job names and save the ATL.


Step 4: Import edited ATL file. If you already have project with the name “EXPORT” in the repository , It will be overwritten with new list of jobs – Don’t worry.

You will see a project with required jobs in it.


Step 5:

Export the Project Export which contains selected jobs from repo.


By using this easy method we can export particular  jobs from repository if it contains thousands of jobs also.

      Why don't you simply select the jobs you want export??? Use ctrl-click or shift-click to select them.

      Alternatively, you can manually create a project in DS Designer, add the selected jobsto that project and export it.

      Note that tampering with export files is not supported by SAP!!!

      Hi Dirk,

      Consider the scenario.

      In one of our repository, We have 1200+ jobs, Now when are given with 150 job names to export, hand-picking them one by one to send to export basket is tedious work.

      Instead, we edit one project ATL to include 150 job names, import that ATL, and export the project having 150 jobs.

      If you really have 1200+ jobs, you should have a look at the work flow concept.

      If I get the choice between typing in 150 job names or selecting them by just clicking on them...
