Posting Jobs

Users can create and run posting jobs through the Posting Jobs module in the Nakisa SAP Posting Bot. Posting jobs take internal GL postings from the selected system and companies, and post them externally to SAP. The Postings Jobs page displays all of the posting jobs that have been run.

You also have the option to schedule the posting job to be run at a later time on the Scheduled Jobs page. You can set scheduled posting jobs to run hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. You can edit, disable, or delete them at any time from this page. Once the job runs, it appears on the Posting Jobs page. You can click on the Profile to view the profile settings at the time that the job was run. Note that if the profile is modified, it will affect the scheduled job the next time it runs.

Note: The user that creates the posting job will be listed on the posting documents if the Use RFC Username for SAP Posting setting in Financial Organization Structure is set to "False". Refer to the Financial Organization Structure Administrator Guide for more information. Note that if the setting is set to "False" and a user creates a scheduled posting job, the system will use the service user defined in the Nakisa Cloud Platform in the posting documents.

Posting jobs can be configured to be queued and run immediately, or they can be scheduled to occur automatically at a set date and/or time.

Before creating a posting job, there must be at least one internal GL posting under the companies selected in the posting profile used for the posting job.

For more information about internal GL postings, refer to the Nakisa Lease Administration User and Admin Guide.

Note: You cannot cancel a posting job after it has been created.

To create and run a posting job:

  1. Click Main Menu > Posting Jobs.
  2. Click to open the Create Posting Jobs window.
  3. Select one or more posting profiles.

    Note: If a posting job is currently running with a specific posting profile, you cannot create a new posting job that immediately runs with the same profile. Wait for the job to finish before creating the new posting job

  4. If desired, change the Batch Size. The Batch Size refers to the number of postings allowed in a lane, with a minimum of 1000 and a maximum of 15,000 postings in one batch. The Batch Size is set to 1000 by default.

    Note: The Chunk Size refers to how many postings are sent to SAP at one time. The Chunk Size is set to 1 by default and cannot be changed.

  5. In the Job Posting Status field, select whether you would like to post postings with the status Open and/or Failed. This field includes both Open and Failed posting statuses by default.
  6. Click Add.

Once a posting job is added, its status updates to "Creating". The status changes to "Scheduled" when the job is created and queued to run. Click to refresh the jobs to see the updated status. When the posting job has completed, the status will change to either "Done" or "Failed". Clicking on a job shows a detailed summary of the posting job, including which items posted successfully or failed to post.

Note: If there is a service interruption that prevents the completion of the job while it is running, the job status changes to "Interrupted". The application will attempt to recover the job as soon as possible. If the job is recovered, it will resume from where it was interrupted. If the job cannot be recovered within the time limit specified in Financial Organization Structure, the status remains "Interrupted" and you must run the job again.

To create a scheduled posting job:

  1. Click Main Menu > Sap Posting Bot > Scheduled Jobs.
  2. Click and enter the job information as defined in the previous list.
  3. In the Scheduling section, set the run frequency by selecting one of the tabs ("Hourly", "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly", or "Yearly") and adjusting the parameters below.
  4. Select one or more posting profiles.
  5. Click Schedule.
