The Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console 8.6.0 fixpack 1 releases many improvements to work in conjunction with SAP environment; one of these is the possibility to model SAP R/3 jobs inside the workload editor.
The developer will be more comfortable having a single point to complete design tasks.
Creation, search, edit and delete actions of SAP R/3 jobs can be performed like any other TWS object avoiding to jump to the “List jobs on SAP” dedicated portlet.+
Connect workload editor to a SAP environment
To accomplish this goal the workload editor needs some parameters to pass to TWS for Application in order to realize the connection to the SAP environment.
A new button “SAP Connection Data” has been added to the toolbar
The required parameter to insert is just the name of the XA workstation with r3batch method installed or the name of a dynamic workstation, like an agent, a pool or a dynamic pool since these workstations are now enabled to work with TWS for Application 8.6.
In this second case an option file to use for the connection can be also provided.
Users need to inserted the SAP connection data once since the workload editor will store and use them until the user will not change or remove them
If the test connection end successfully the workload editor is enabled to work with SAP R/3 jobs!
Create a SAP R/3 job inside the workload editor
You can now create a SAP R/3 job like any other TWS object either on distributed and z/OS environment, but it will be saved on the SAP system instead of the TWS database.
Both in the distributed and z/OS environment it is identified by “Remote SAP R/3 Job”
This is the General properties panel of the R/3 job:
From the details view the steps can be added to the R/3 job:
After saving here it is the R/3 job as displayed in the SAP GUI!
