Job & Automation Monitoring

Scope & Content


The purpose of Job & Automation Monitoring, which is available as of SAP Focused Run 3.0 FP02, is to provide transparency about the status of automation processes regarding Execution Status, Application Status, Start Delay and Run Time with the aim to offer these 4 core operations aspects for all kinds of (scheduled) automation processes (for simplification called “jobs” in the later text), that run on different platforms with a unified user experience using a common look-and-feel and handling pattern.

Job & Automation Monitoring replaces the Job Monitoring application that supports the monitoring of ABAP jobs only. See a high-level feature comparison with Job Monitoring here.

The basic concept is to collect individual job execution data into the central monitoring application, to correlate it with its job definition and evaluate every execution using historical data. The rating of the last (or latest) execution(s) is propagated to the job level and finally to the service level so that you can easily understand the current state of many jobs that are executed in the different systems. In case of issues with job executions, context-based navigation is offered from the job to the individual execution and finally a direct navigation to the corresponding job execution in the executing system (or service). This is for providing quick access for a more detailed analysis, for example to stop a not ending execution or to restart a failed execution.  

Job & Automation Monitoring shall help to understand the current state of the automation processes across all involved cloud services and systems. The aggregated historical data shall help to detect deteriorations to avoid downtimes. On top, in case of a SAP ABAP system it shall help you to efficiently monitor so called Standard Jobs, which are those jobs that are scheduled by the SAP S/4HANA Technical Job Repository (see SAP Note 2190119) or in lower releases by the SM36 Standard Job framework. 



Jobs and workflows are executed in the managed cloud services and on-premise systems. The individual executions are captured (start, end times, and status) by the local execution infrastructures this “normalized” run data is sent to SAP Focused Run, where the individual execution data is assembled and correlated with definition data. 


Job & Automation Monitoring in SAP Focused Run collects data for these job / automation types:

Home Page

The Status Overview provides a summary regarding job execution for the systems in scope. It shows the number of systems and the number of automations ("jobs"). The jobs are rated based on the rating of the latest execution:

  • The Execution Status is rated green, if a job finished successfully and red, if the job execution did not finish, i.e., aborted. It is rated yellow, if a job finished with warnings or errors without aborting.
  • The Application Status is rated green, if a job successfully processed the application data. It is rated red, if e.g., an ABAP job execution writes errors into the application log and yellow, if there are warnings, but no errors.
  • The Start Delay rating is rated green, if the technical delay of a job (e.g., in case of an ABAP job the time passed until a job gets a work process assigned) did not exceed the threshold defined.
  • The Run Time is rated green, if the runtime of a job did not exceed the threshold defined.  

The Application Overview provides a card-based overview, with more details:

  • Latest Rating - All Jobs: Information on the number of jobs, where the last execution had an issue in the different aspects.
  • Latest Rating - Standard Jobs: Information on the number of standard jobs, where the last execution had an issue in the different aspects.
  • Jobs with open alerts - All Jobs: Information on the alert numbers per alert type.
  • Jobs with open alerts - Standard Jobs: Information on the alert numbers per alert type for standard jobs.
  • Missing execution of mandatory job: Information on the alert numbers in case of missing execution of a mandatory job.

In the Alert Ticker you see the most recent Job & Automation Monitoring alerts for the selected scope.

Please note that alerts, which are currently rated green are not shown in the alert ticker, whereas Job & Automation Monitoring considers all alerts that are not yet confirmed. Consequently, the alert number in the Status Overview section is typically higher than in the Alert Ticker.


The jobs are listed and rated regarding Execution Status, Application Status, Start Delay and Run Time. The rating reflects the rating of the respective aspect for the latest execution of the job.

  • The list of jobs is default sorted by Execution Status rating in a descending order. You can change the sort and filter the list of jobs.
  • The Column Open Alerts shows the number of not yet confirmed alert situations. By clicking on a number, you are navigated to the alert details.

To drill-down to a failed execution of a job in the remote system:

  • Click on a name, you view the list of executions for the selected job sorted by planned start time.
  • Click on the arrow at the end of the line, to view the run details regarding the executed actions (e.g., reports and variants).

  • Clicking on the information icon next to each execution, to view further details and navigate directly to the job in the managed system by clicking on the Run ID value.


Alerts are raised for every distinct job (definition) name. You can get alerted, if a job execution has a red or yellow Executions Status, a red or yellow Application Status, a Start Delay or Run Time that exceeds the threshold that you have set. Additionally, you can get alerted, if the execution of periodic job (that you have flagged as mandatory) is overdue by more than 15 minutes.

The alert Additional Key contains the NameType and Context/Client of the job. The alert Additional Information contains the name of the job and if the alert has been defined for a group of jobs, name of the job group. In the METRICS table the alerted executions of the job are listed and you have a direct link to the managed system like from the monitoring application.

Alert Notification

You can include the job name into the notification subject and execution details into the notification body. For this, make use of keywords ADDITIONAL_INFORMATION and METRIC_TABLE in a notification template.


In view Exceptions detailed information on exceptions is offered.

Exceptions Overview

The exceptions overview offers you for ABAP systems the exception categories offered are “ABAP Application Log” and “ABAP Aborted Jobs”. You can drill down into the details, i.e. to the single exception.

Exception Details Integrated with Job Executions

To get exception detail information from an ABAP managed system without specifying the SLG1 object and with a link to the corresponding job execution the prerequisite is ST-PI 7.40 SP20 (or higher). To get the collected exceptions transferred to the SAP Focused Run system you need to activate in Integration Monitoring configuration the monitoring of the category in the monitoring client (see more details in chapter Configuration).

With above points fulfilled, the collected exceptions get a correlator value so that from Job & Automation Monitoring navigation from a job execution to the related exceptions is possible. 

If there are exception details linked to a job execution, then this is indicated with a slightly changed icon as displayed below and on click on the icon you drill down to the exception messages and see their details. In case of ABAP jobs, the exceptions related to the Execution Status are those of category ABAP Aborted Jobs.

In case of ABAP jobs, the exceptions related to the Application Status are those of category ABAP Application Log.

Analysis and Trend Reporting

Analytical information is offered for the jobs regarding number of executions, failed executions and run time. The table is default sorted by Total Run Time. You can change the sorting and apply filters.

On clicking on the graph icon at the end of every line you are navigated to view Trend Graphs, where you can see the values over time.

The data presented is based on hourly aggregates. For a large time frame the hourly aggregates are summed up to daily values automatically for better readability. Via custom time frame you can restrict to a certain period in the past and via the resolution option in the top right corner you can switch between Hourly and Daily.


  • In managed ABAP system
    • ST-PI 700 SP31 (or higher) or 
    • ST-PI 740 SP16 - 20 and SAP note 3102288 or

    • 3331712 - FRUN 4.0 FP01 Job & Automation Monitoring back-end correction

You can use this CSA policy to check, if the managed ABAP systems fulfill the minimum prerequisite for Job & Automation Monitoring.


Activation of Job & Automation Monitoring Use Case

Flag and save the use case setting.

On activating Job Monitoring in SSI for an ABAP system job data collection is not automatically activated, but needs to be done manually for every system in the Job & Automation Monitoring application via configuration. If you want to automate this, please check for details in Configuration Guide 4.0 FP01 with Use Cases.

Collect Job Execution Information via Agent for Technical Systems

SAP ABAP Job and SAP BW Process Chain executions can be collected via the Simple Diagnostic Agent, by switching on data collection for the technical system. In the picture below for the top 4 systems data collection is activated. For the first 2 systems there are issues.

If you switch to "On" as default for job type SAP ABAP Job the job execution data is collected from all clients, but in the detail view you can restrict the ABAP job collection for specific clients and collect data for further job types. Currently SAP ABAP Job and SAP BW Process Chain are offered for Application Server ABAP.

Collect Job Execution Information via SAP Focused Run Reverse Proxy in SAP Cloud ALM

You can push SAP Application Job execution data from S/4HANA CE and job execution data from SAP Build Process Automation to your SAP Focused Run system by enabling SAP Focused Run Reverse Proxy in SAP Cloud ALM.


In below section, only the very basic configuration options are explained, so that you can fully utilize the monitoring application. For alert configuration and further configuration options (with use case examples), please see the corresponding chapter of:

Option to Create Job Groups

By activating data collection Job & Automation Monitoring fetches by default all ABAP job / BW Chain executions from the managed systems. This is done to give IT administrators a holistic overview on the current situation and on trends.

To provide a view on specific jobs (potentially from different systems) that a business user is interested in, you can create a job group in Configuration -> Job Groups and add the relevant jobs. You can define alerts for the jobs of the group (or a subset of the jobs). In general it could make sense to create one job group per Job Monitoring recipient list.

Option to Set Run Time and Delay Threshold in Monitoring

Once job data is loaded from the managed system, you see that Execution Status, Application Status, Start Delay and Run Time are rated. The rating is set according to Rating Rules, for which you can adjust the thresholds for Start Delay and Run Time. Such a change is applied only to the user session, it is not (yet) possible to save the setting.

Option to Set Name of Job with Changing Name

In case of the ABAP job scheduler there is no job definition with a unique ID. When scheduling a job the user defines what shall be executed, gives a job name and on save this entity gets a run ID. The job name does not need to be unique as together with the run ID it is unique for the ABAP system. At execution of the job the next occurrence is determined, and the job data is copied to the next due date and gets a new run id value.

To be able to group the executions of a job for Job & Automation Monitoring a stable ID is formed by the data collector as a hash value:


 Hash of


 jobname + client + number of steps + job metadata[(step no + program + variant)]


If a job constantly changes its name (e.g. job name contains a time stamp), the formed JobId hash value is not stable, which does allow to group executions under one JobID. To enable the grouping for such a case, the JobId hash value is formed without the job name and on the monitoring UI, such a situation is indicated as follows:

In such a case, please give the job a name that represents all related executions (by pressing the pencil icon).

Note: Several ABAP jobs that have changing names and that execute the same (i.e. client + number of steps + job metadata[(step no + program + variant)] are identical), cannot be distinguished by the monitoring application. 

Option to Get Application Status Rated for ABAP Jobs

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:

  1. call transaction CRIT
  2. add "Auto-linking Applog-Handles for jobs"
  3. activate the profile

Please note, that with "Option" [=] the value * will be interpreted as *. For patterns make sure to use "Option" [x].

Option to Collect Exception Messages from ABAP Application Log and Job Log

Any Job Log abort or ABAP Application Log warning or error that is raised by the job execution is collected on the managed system (from all clients) by job monitoring data provider using function /SDF/E2EEM_FEED_LOGS_OF_JOB (prerequisite ST-PI 740 SP20 and higher). To get the message details transferred to the SAP Focused Run system, it is necessary to activate the corresponding agent. This can be done in Integration Monitoring configuration, by configuring category ABAP Aborted Job for collection and category ABAP Application Log for collection for the client in which the job monitoring data collection runs (which is the default client)

Note, that for category ABAP Application Log the system expects you to fill a value for the Object filter, still all Application log exceptions raised at job execution will be collected.

To determine the default client for an ABAP system, check in Simple System Integration (SSI). In below example, for system FT4ADM the default client is 200.

Use Cases

  • Have an overview on the current status
    • of all jobs executed in one or more systems
    • of a list of jobs across several systems (via job groups)
  • Get alerted and notified
    • if any job aborts in a system (using alert type Critical Execution Status)
    • if a standard job fails (using alert filter Standard Job)
    • if a "mandatory" job fails (using alert filter Mandatory Job)
    • if a job from a list of jobs fails or runs too long (using alert filter Job Name or by creating alerts for a Job Group)
    • if an ABAP job writes critical application log messages (using alert type Critical Application Status)
    • if a job does not run any more (using alert type Missing Execution of Mandatory Job)
    • if jobs that execute a specific report fail (using alert filter Job Executable)
  • Analyze
    • which are the long running jobs and check if they deteriorate
    • for a job, if there are times with high run time or high failure rate

For a detailed description of use cases, please see see the corresponding chapter of the Configuration Guide 4.0 FP01 with Use Cases.


In SAP Focused Run Job & Automation Monitoring data reorganization is as follows:

  • the data of individual executions are kept for monitoring depending on job frequency and deleted with a default rule that you cannot change. The rule is, that for every job at least the last 14 executions are kept, all from the last 24 hours and on top all failed executions for 3 days. 
  • jobs that are deleted in the managed service (that are not scheduled any more) are removed from the database after 2 weeks together with the related executions and schedules.
  • the data of individual executions are aggregated for analysis and deleted by default after 52 weeks. For changing the default to a value between 4 and 150 weeks navigate to Configuration -> Global Settings.

Note: Please ensure to confirm alerts as alerted job executions are not removed from the data base.


Question 1: In Job & Automation Monitoring Configuration pane for a technical system of type Application Server ABAP I observe a red bar. What is the reason, what can I do?

Question 2: I have switched on data collection for a technical system of type Application Server ABAP, but the status of data collection stays "in progress" for more than 15 minutes or switches to "failed”. What is the reason, what can I do?

Background: By switching on data collection, you have implicitly created a "filter" in case of job type SAP ABAP Job and will collect job data from all clients or the client(s) that you have specified.

The following artifacts need to work for the collection to happen:

  1. Job SAP_FRN_JAM_DATA_COLLECTION is running 
  2. In remote ABAP system needed ST-PI + notes (see prerequisites) are applied.
  3. Agent version needs to be >= 1.59
  4. In Agent Administration for the technical system (see in Configuration Information)
    • the following files are received from SAP Focused Run for creation or deletion of threads based on activation or deactivation of filters in monitoring configuration
    • the following threads have been created (see in Agent Internals in tab Collector Framework)
      • in case of ABAP job monitoring
        • jobmonhousekeeping [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_ABAP_HOUSEKEEP_OP_<<host>>_<<LMDB ID of managed system>>] Period [86400 S]
        • jobruntime [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_ABAP_RUNTIME_OP_<<host>>_<<configuration ID of filter>>] Period [300 S]
        • metadata [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_ABAP_METADATA_OP_<<host>>_<<LMDB ID of managed system>>] Period [300 S]
      • in case of BW Process Chain monitoring
        • jobmonhousekeeping [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_BW_HOUSEKEEP_OP_<<host>>_<<LMDB ID of managed system>>] Period [86400 S]
        • jobruntime [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_BW_RUNTIME_OP_<<host>>_<<configuration ID of filter>>] Period [300 S]
        • metadata [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_BW_METADATA_OP_<<host>>_<<LMDB ID of managed system>>] Period [300 S]
      • in case of SAP Business Workflow monitoring
        • jobmonworkflow [<<FRUN SID>>.JOB_WORKFLOW_OP_<<host>>_<<LMDB ID of managed system>>] Period [300 S]

If threads are missing as a first action please switch off data collection and switch it on again after a few minutes. If threads are still missing, please reconfigure and restart the agents of the system (as described below).

If there are exception like “Empty CSRF token” in the threads the reason could be that the properties file is outdated (job monitoring had to update the custom properties). In order to make the agent use the new properties you need to manually reconfigure and restart the agents using the Agent Administration and selecting the technical system or Host.

  1. Re-configure the SDA (to push the updated Properties files to the system)
    • Via the Mass Action drop down 
      • select Configure Agent
      • Press Go button
  2. Re-start the SDA (once the Agent configuration has completed):
    • via the Agent Action drop down
      • select Restart Agent
      • press Go button

If there are exception like “... exception occurred during the execution of the function '/SDF/AJM_METADATA'.” in the threads, check in the Logs tab, if you find more information. If there you find "UCON RFC Rejected", you need to check, if you have whitelisted the needed functions as described in Unified Connectivity Usage with SAP Focused Run .

Question: In the Additional Alert Key I see job name FRN_ARP_0000001242. However, this job does not exist. The actual job names, that we see in SM37 are:

  1. FRN_GP_C2022111514563629923_001
  2. FRN_GP_C2022111514563629923_002
  3. ...
  4. FRN_GP_C2022111514563629923_012
  5. ...

Answer: As explained in the Configuration section under Option to Set Name of Job with Changing Name: In case of the ABAP job scheduler there is no job definition with a unique ID. To be able to group the executions of a job for Job & Automation Monitoring a stable ID is formed by the data collector as a hash value that contains the job name. If a job constantly changes its name (e.g. job name contains a time stamp), the formed JobId hash value is not stable, which does allow to group executions under one JobId. To enable the grouping for such a case, the JobId hash value is formed without the job name and on the monitoring UI you have the option to give to such a job a name that represents the group of jobs. It is this name, that will be used at alert creation.

Still forward navigation from the alert details via URL to the job in the managed ABAP system is supported.

Question: In SM37, I see BI_PROCESS* jobs, but not in the Monitoring view. Why are those missing?

Answer: In SM37 all jobs are displayed, whereas in the monitoring application jobs that execute report RSPROCESS as those jobs are elements of BW Process Chains. Therefore, they are displayed as executables of the related BW Process Chain (job type SAP BW Process Chain).

Question: In SM37, I see jobs (that execute reports RBANK_PROC_START or RBANK_PROC_END), but not in the Monitoring view. Why are those missing?

Answer: PPF parent jobs are collected, but not the child jobs that execute reports RBANK_PROC_START or RBANK_PROC_END. Those child jobs are consequently invisible in the monitoring application. The reason for not collecting their execution data is, that the parent job runs until all child jobs have finished and if any of the child jobs fails, the parent job has a message in its job log. If the collector (as of ST-PI 7.4 SP20) finds such messages, it rates the parent job yellow.

Question: In the Monitoring view, I see jobs of type ABAP Job with yellow Execution Status rating, even though in SM37 they are rated green. Why are they rated yellow? 

Answer: ABAP jobs, that write messages of type E (Error) or W (Warning) into the job log without actually aborting are displayed in the Job & Automation monitoring application with yellow Execution Status rating.

Question: I have configured alert Critical Execution Status as I want to get alerted, if an ABAP job cancels / aborts. I realize that I also get alerted for jobs that do not cancel, but have yellow Execution Status in the monitoring application. Why?

Answer: Please apply note 3276373 to get alerted in case of red rating only. With 4.0 FP01 you (will) have the configuration option "Alert only in case of red rating". If you remove the flag an alert will be created on yellow (or red) execution status rating, else only on red. 

Question: I see in the monitoring view that ABAP jobs are collected, but not those that run more frequently than every hour. Why?

Answer: Most probably there is a one-hour difference between system time and the time in the system time zone. Please check this and make sure to set the system time zone (via transaction /nstzac), so that it matches the system time.

Question: I have upgraded to SAP Focused Run to a higher version and configure alerts. I miss the filter section or some filters (like filter for mandatory jobs) or other settings that should be available on my version of SAP Focused Run.
Question: I have upgraded to 4.0 FP01 and want to monitor SAP Business Workflow instances. Therefore in Monitoring configuration, I  try to add SAP Business Workflow, in the drop down only SAP ABAP Job and SAP BW Process Chain are listed.

Answer: After upgrade for activating new filter options and other options in alert configuration you need to run report REPT_AJM_ADD_DATA_CONT_TABLE (see also master guide).

Question: I've enabled job - Application Log linking on managed system for client 005 (using transaction CRIT). Still on navigation from the job UI list to Exception view always says "no data". There is no EXM collector on the SDA. Is that the reason? And if so, why wasn't it configured?

Answer: Yes, this is the reason. As described under "Configuration", to get the message details transferred to the SAP Focused Run system, it is necessary to activate the corresponding agent. This is not happening automatically (in 4.0 FP01), but needs to be done manually in Integration Monitoring configuration, by configuring category ABAP Aborted Job for collection and category ABAP Application Log for collection for the client in which the job monitoring data collection runs (which is the default client).

Question: I can see in the monitoring view that application log exceptions are collected. I would like to get alerted on specific messages and have configured alerting in Integration and Cloud Monitoring accordingly as described here. However, no alerts are raised. Why?

Answer: There is a discrepancy of the names of the collection context keys between the regular Applog collector (keys are uppercase) and the new Jobmon Applog collector (keys are camel case) and the ABAP Application Log Category field model in SAP Focused run uses DB mappings based on uppercase keys for alert calculation.

A fix is provided with SAP Focused Run 4.00 FP01 and ST/PI 740 SP22. You have to re-save existing applog/joblog Pull configurations in the Integration and Cloud Monitoring Configuration UI.

Question: I observe in Configuration in the Job Definitions view many jobs without Job Type and Client. What shall I do?

Answer: Apply the correction to the data collector it in the managed system, i.e. SAP note 3102288 on ST-PI 740 SP20 and below or or SAP note 3281776 on ST-PI 740 SP21 and above. Note that you will have to wait until the job is executed again in the managed system to get the job type value and the client filled in SAP Focused Run.

Question: After activation of data collection in Job & Automation Monitoring for an Application Server ABAP, I have observed that some finished and release jobs from the managed system, that I see in SM37, are not getting reflected in the Monitoring Application. Why?

Answer: Job & Automation Monitoring data collector for ABAP jobs collects job execution data with a maximum look back time of 6 hours and only those runs that are overdue, i.e. have status released and a planned start time in the past. 

Question: I do the outbound integration of the alert by implementing lo_badi_reaction_ext->react_to_alert. The value of importing parameter IS_ALERT-CONTEXT_ID is no LMDB guid in contrast to other use cases. Why?

Answer: The context_id (i.e. managed object) of an Job & Automation Monitoring alerts needs a unique value (per job definition within a system) to allow the full usage of the advanced alert management APIs. Thus it cannot be the LMDB guid of the system.

To determine the LMDB guid of a Job & Automation monitoring alert use CL_AJM_ALERT_CALCULATION->GET_TECH_SYS_BY_ALRT_CONTEXT for the IS_ALERT-CONTEXT_ID. An alert is a Job & Automation Monitoring alert, if ls_alert-ref->get_technical_scenario( ) EQ if_ajm_constant=>co_jobmon_usecase.

Question: In the Job & Automation Monitoring application, I see ABAP jobs /UI5/UPD_ODATA_METADATA_CACHE and /UI5/APP_INDEX_CALCULATE with red or yellow application status, but when I navigate to Exceptions view, I can see no exceptions. Why?

Answer: UI5 jobs delete the application log errors that they write quickly as the developers think that a longer persistence of the logs will lead to problems. Therefore, the exception details cannot be collected by Exception Monitoring (EXM). To see the details of the exceptions you need to access the application log directly from SM37, by selecting the latest job executions and "Goto --> Application Log".

Question: We are forwarding alerts from FRUN to a 3rd Party Service Management using the outbound BADI connector. Alerts trigger is happening when the Alert is initially created in FRUN or any changes to Alert status is performed. However, for the sub alerts generated in FRUN at each collection frequency, the alert trigger is not happening.

Answer: With the default setting "Raise Alert: Grouped" a downstream action (like email) is triggered when there is a change in the alert rating (green to yellow / red, yellow to red / green or red to yellow / green). This means, that no new notification is sent on consecutive failures of a job as the rating does not change. You have the option to change the configuration to "Raise Alert: Atomic" and then every alert occurrence triggers a downstream action. 

Question: We have upgraded to 4.0 and see in SM21 "."CL_AJM_ALERT_CALCULATION_AMDP=>GET_RUNS_BY_EXECUTION_SATUS": line 78 col 8 (at pos 6390): SQLScript APPLY_FILTER Invalid filter: '000,001,200 AND NW_ABAP_JOB'.

Answer: On 4.0 the way in which alert configuration is stored has been changed and the alert calculation coding expects its input in this new format. Please save your alert configurations to update the persistence.

Question: We have upgraded from SAP Focused Run 3.0 FP02. We had alerts configured and alerting had worked, i.e. alerts had been raised. After upgrade alerts are not raised any more.

Answer: We changed in table AJM_ALRT_FLTR the way we persist the values. Instead of separation by comma (,) separation by semicolon (;) is used. The alert creation coding expects the new format. To adjust the data in table AJM_ALRT_FLTR, please run report REPT_AJM_ALERT_FLTR_STRING.

Question: We have setup alert “Missing execution of mandatory job”. We observe that we get false alerts on a regular basis at night, shortly after SAP_FRN_JAM_REORG_DATA runs. We also see, that in fact the executions are missing in Job Monitoring (even though they happened).

Answer: At data reorganization (which should be a matter of minutes) we stop accepting job monitoring data to avoid locking situations on the run data table. However, after reorganization finished, we failed to repeat the not accepted collection. This is fixed with SDA 1.62 Patch 4. Please apply the SDA patch and also apply the correction of note 3331712 or 3276373 .
