Difference between 'always' and 'only one' Autosubmit options in Wait event

Hi All,

I tested some jobs with  'always' and 'only one' Autosubmit options by placing some files. Whenever the file is placed, the instance of the job is getting submitted irrespective of the previous instance of the job is running or not.

Can one please explain is there any much difference between the two options 'always' and 'only one' Autosubmit options in Wait event tab.

Thanks,

Tinku

    This is from SAP CPS Admin guide.

    Only one - Only submits a job when there is no job of the same job definition in a pre-running state, a job that has not yet reached status Running yet.

    Always - A job will always be submitted regardless of any pre running state.

    Hope this helps.

    Rick.

    Hello,

    The 'only one' will check if there is already a job waiting for the event. If not, it will autosubmit the job anyway.

    Note that the 'only one' is unreliable at the moment, so stick with the Autosubmit option for now. Especially if you do not notice a big difference.

    • Gerben, little confused. Do you mean if one instance of the job definition is in active state for example due to arrival of a file and the second instance of the job definition will not be submitted unless the first instance completes?
