Learn how to manage your background job scheduling while maintaining accurate and up-to-date documentation on job requests and associated changes.
Key Concept

You now have three options for managing jobs in SAP Solution Manager. You have the SAP Central Process Scheduling by Redwood (SAP CPS), which you can run from your SAP Solution Manager system or a separate SAP NetWeaver system. You also now have SAP Solution Manager’s Job Scheduling Management (JSM) toolset, which provides great control over the scheduling and management of jobs. Your third option comes from the integration of SAP CPS in SAP Solution Manager for automated data exchange and data consistency in the various functionalities.

You can now manage your jobs from one central point using the job documentation capabilities provided by SAP Solution Manager’s Job Scheduling Management (JSM). It offers a lean or fully extended workflow, including flexible job scheduling and management capabilities. With the integration of SAP Central Process Scheduling by Redwood (SAP CPS) in SAP Solution Manager, you can now import all the existing jobs from SAP CPS and the related managed systems and then take advantage of the functionality of JSM.

SAP Central Process Scheduling by Redwood (SAP CPS) was released November 2008.

To use JSM in SAP Solution Manager, you have two options: the SAP Easy Access menu or the newly developed SAP Solution Manager work centers. You can use the SAP Easy Access menu (available with SAP Solution Manager SP 15); however, SAP recommends using SAP Solution Manager Work Center (SAP Solution Manager SP 17 is recommended), which provides more than 10 role-based work centers. The work centers give you a better overview of the available functionalities via the new user interface.
