Adding Jobs Under projects in Easy way

We can add the jobs under projects by dragging them into project folder(From object library to project area)


But if we have hundreds of jobs its painful to add each job by dragging into project folder.

so by using below steps we can add the jobs under projects at a time if we have many jobs also.

Step 1 :

Take the list of job details in excel(Which you want to add under project) and remove duplicates and append comma(,) end of every row(end of job name in every row) except last row,append semi colon (;)end of last row.


Step 2 :

Export the Project under which you want to add job names.


Step 3:

Edit the exported ATL in notepad and add the job names in ATL and save it.


Step 4: Import saved ATL into Repository and open the project you will get the new jobs under project.


We can save the time by using this method to add hundreds of jobs under project.

      Definitely not supported by SAP. No messing around with .atl files! Make sure you've got a backup of your repository before trying this, in case you screw it up.

      Why don't you select all jobs (use shift-click and ctrl-click) at once and drag and drop them to the project in one move? IMHO, much faster than typing all names in Excel.

      And why would you have hundreds of jobs anyway? Try workflows!

      Hi Dirk,


      Lets assume i have 300 Jobs in a repository and i wanted to export only 20 jobs from that so its difficult to select with this option(use shift-click and ctrl-click) even its same if you wanted to select multiple workflows also among 300.So we found this easy way to do the process easily.Yeah As suggested by you we are taking the backup before performing this steps.Thanks.
