Scheduling stored procedures via XS jobs


I have a stored procedure that accepts a parameter. Like ProcedureExample('<SchemaName>').

Now I need it become schedulable via an XS job through the XS dashboard.

Unfortunately, I don't have a clue on how to start on this.

I found some links but no examples of how to do this but none of them explain how I can make the job pass parameters.

It would be a great help if someone could post an example.

    Hi Shyam,

    1. You need to have sap.hana.xs.admin.roles::JobAdministrator privilege.

    2. Create the stored procedure your talking about to run at regular intervals.

    3. Create a job file .xsjob that defines details of the recurring task.

    In your case it would look something like this run_procedure.xsjob



        "description": "Runs the procedure",

        "action": "package_path::procedure_name",

        "schedules": [


              "description": "Runs the procedure every 59th second every year every day",

              "xscron": "* * * * * * 59",

              "parameter": {

                 "schema_name": "XYZ"





    4. Maintian the XS job's runtime configuration :

         a. Login to XS dashboard using           http://<WebServerHost>:80<SAPHANAinstance>/sap/hana/xs/admin/

         b. Create the job by configuring it, you need to know the user_name, password, locale, start           and stop time, Active.

         c. Save the job

    5. Enable the job scheduling feature in SAP HANA by doule click on system -> xsengine.ini -> scheduler -> enabled. (Need to have admin rights to do this).

    6. Check the job logs, your scheduled job must be running every 59th second.
