Daily Job - Stop just for one day without deleting it.

I have a background job which runs every night. Due to some testing being performed each weekend at the moment, we do not want this job to run over the weekend, just temporarily.

I know I can simply delete the job and recreate it, but the job has 19 steps, all with variants and it's a pain to delete it and recreate it.

It is possible to just "pause" it for a couple of days? Currently the job is in "released" status for tonight. I still want it to run tonight, but not Saturday or Sunday and then continue as normal on Monday.

I'm aware I can use Factory Calenders to define irregular run patterns but this isn't really suitable in this case as it's just temporary.

Basically I'm hoping for a quick easy way to just hold the job for a couple of days!

Thanks.

    Hi Paul,

    Just GO TO SM37

    job name = job you want to hold,

    user name = star (*)

    job status tick the planned and released options >>exucute

    you said the job has a status released.>> so tick mark it >>job>> released to sceduled

    hence the status gets changed meaning to say your job is in "hold" .

    Once you get back from the holiday.

    go again to sm37

    job name = job which was put to hold,

    user name = star (*)

    job status >> tick the planned and released options >>exucute

    tick the job which is in sceduled >> click on job tab >> click on change

    click on start condition >> mention your desired day and the time>> save and again save.

    The same job with same varaint and steps will be released and run again.

    Best Regards,

    Nag

    Y to delete it.. Also I don't see how recreating the job is painful given that you have the job copy function available !!. Just select the job and copy it as many times as u want.

    If I were you i would create 4 copies of this job making it a total of 5. Each of these 5 jobs will run with a weekly periodicity with the 1st one slated to start on Monday, next om Tuesday and so on till Friday.

    When this temporary period is done and dusted I will delete Tuesday to Friday jobs and would change the periodicity of Monday job to daily !
