Batch job not getting released automatically


Hi Folks,

I need small help from you. I am creating a batch job through ABAP using JOB_OPEN, and JOB_CLOSE FMs. I have set start immediately STRTIMMED = 'X' in JOB_CLOSE FM to start the job immediately when scheduled.

But the problem here is that the background job is not getting released automatically to run, even though I have set the STRTIMMED field to ‘X’. Also, my user id has the authorisation object S_BTCH_JOB (RELE = ‘X’) that is required for automatic release of the job.

Do you have any idea why the job is not getting released automatically as soon as it is scheduled? Do I need to make any other settings here?

Request your inputs.
