APO DP JOBs: How to execute /sapapo/tscube transaction with variant daily?

Hallo APO experts,

I have an issue acc. to transaction /SAPAPO/tscube. It has to be executed every day that's why I would like to schedule it in a background job.

I know how to create the job at all:

1. Creat an activity (/SAPAPO/MC8T)

2. Create Demand Planning job (/SAPAPO/MC8D)

3. Schedule job (/SAPAPO/MC8G)

4. Check the job log ( /SAPAPO/MC8K)

Following these steps I can create it BUT how can I assign the tscube-variant to the activity???

Do you habe a suggestion/ advice how to manage the situation?

    Hi, you cannot use /sapapo/mc8* to schedule /sapapo/tscube.

    Please use transaction SM36 to schedule job for program /SAPAPO/RTSINPUT_CUBE with your variant.

    I suggest you create a process chain Using transaction RSPC.

    1. Create a start step

    2. Create a "DP Background Processing" step (Drag and drop from "SCM - Demand Planning" sub-menu)

    3. You can assign the job, activity. Planning area, Planing book, data view and selection ID in this step

    4. Save and activate the process chain. Process chain schedule (frequency & time) can be controlled via "Start step"


    Instead of "DP Background Processing" create a step for "Abap Program" from "General Services" sub menu. Here you can directly assign the Program " /sapapo/tscube" & it's variant.
