There are no prerequisite steps to be done in SAP Cloud ALM. You need to have the role / authorization for Job Monitoring in SAP Cloud ALM, and you need to configure in your SAP cloud service(s) the push of job execution data as described under "Setup" below. This initial one-time activity needs to be done in every monitored service.
* For SAP ABAP jobs in many cases the rating of the Application Status is grey. This is normal, if the job does not write any application log messages. To ensure that application log messages that are written during batch execution of a program are linked to the job execution you need to do following configuration:
In below example the linking is restricted to jobs executed in client 200. Please note, that with "Option" [=] the value * will be interpreted as *. For patterns make sure to use "Option" [x].
In the Monitoring UI jobs are evaluated with a default Rating Rule that you can adjust, if you have role Job Monitoring Consumer. Please note, that the setting is not persisted, i.e. if you relaunch the application the default will be applied again. Below you see the default settings.
To configure alerting for specific jobs, you need to have role Job Monitoring Administrator assigned. Expand the configuration pane and then access the service, for which you want to configure alerting.
Per service you can define alerts of category Critical Execution Status, Critical Application Status, Critical Runtime and Critical Delay. If you want alerts to be created only for certain jobs you can specify job name, executing user and the name of what is being executed. The filter conditions for the different parameters are connected with AND for the same parameter with OR. Make sure to switch on Create Alert and save. If you want to stop to get alerted, you can switch off the Event Action, or deactivate or delete the event in the list of events.
In order to send notifications for alerts to an email address
In SAP Cloud ALM Job & Automation Monitoring data reorganization is as follows:
Note: If you have configured alerts, please ensure to confirm them. To avoid data growth only the last 100 alerted executions are kept.
Be aware that SAP provides you in fair usage concept 8 GB HANA memory per month. If you extend the given memory you might need to subscribe additional memory blocks with our BTP service SAP Cloud ALM memory extension.
If the "Type" of a job or automation is missing, the reason is that run information exists without definition data.
In case of ABAP jobs, if the "Type" is missing for a small part of the jobs only (e.g. 1%), this could be a temporary issue, that disappears after one day as then resending is done. If the issue persists then the reason could be a bug in the data collector.
