Authorization in Background Jobs

Hi,

I have a method which will be called periodically by a background job. Now I need to know whether authorization check needs to be performed or not.

What happens when the user who triggered the job is logged off. Will the job run as per the schedule in the background mode even when the user is not logged into the system ?

Please clarify ....

Regards,

Vara

    Background job will continue even if the user who triggered it, logs off. That is the main purpose of background jobs, that you don't need someone to be there to monitor the execution of a program.

    Now coming to authorization check, what exactly do you want us to answer.

    Authorization checks are determined by your security concerns around the process you implemented in your method(by the way, what is this method, a class method or perform or program?). No one can say yes or no to your question. It depends on your requirements. If it is something else you wanted to ask, please rephrase your question.
