    Hi all,
    I'm going to use the new SAP Plugin instead of the old SAP Adaptetr and I have a question regarding how to translate the following SAP Adapter job:
    auto_r3v45 -C P01_700 job ZPAGAM_FOIT_CONTA_ZEX
    into the new SAP Plugin syntax.
    I only see SAP "prog + variant" but not SAP "job" in the plugin .

    In a few words: does anyone know the syntax (il JIL) to run with the SAP Plugin a SAP job (not a program + variant but a simple SAP job)?

    Can anyone help me?

    Hi Roberto,


    Could you check if the following answered question helps?

    Converting from auto_r3v45 (r4) to job_type: SAP (r11) - any hint? 


    And I will add tag for CA WA AE, so that more autosys users will see it.


    Thank you,

    Yes ,  we have conversion tool which converts sap adaptor jobs to plugin jobs.

    there is a user guide which has all the information how to use the tool .

    The conversion utility does a good job of converting what you have in the adaptor but we found 2  additional things we needed to consider/change:

    1. the plugin is significantly faster in intiating a SAP job, and reporting the SAP job finish (in the order of 10x) so we had workflows go from 1hr -> 10minutes (the impact of this is more for a series of quick SAP jobs than 1 long one) , which meant that we had to rethink some of the workflow in AE due to this performance "improvement"

    2.  the plugin has a lot more functionality than the adaptor with regard to the parameters of the SAP job than the adaptor, so after the conversion we then went through and reviewed (over time) what additional functionality we could use for each workflow.


    Have fun with the conversion, Andrew
