Bye bye “Standart Jobs function”
Standart Jobs function (transaction SM36) is obsolete in SAP S/4HANA for sap technical jobs. Instead of it, we have a new easy way: Technical Job Repository.
Technical Job Repository carries out the scheduling of periodic technical sap jobs in the client.
Also this mechanism is carried out automatically by the system. You do not need any interaction and scheduling, unlike the earlier Standard Jobs function in SM36.
New Job Repository function calls the transaction SJOBREPO.
SJOBREPO displays an overview of all job definitions delivered and scheduled by SAP in the technical job repository.
You can use SJOBREPO to change a job definition within certain limits or to completely deactivate it.
There is a hourly working trigger for technical background job generation. One kernel parameter is responsible for this mechanism (rdisp/job_repo_activate_time). These generations logs are stored in table BTCCTL for the last execution time.
There is good one SAP note (# 2190119) and it has an attached PDF document that explains the functionality and customizing possibilities of the technical job repository in SAP S/4HANA.
