How to retrieve deleted or archived jobs


I am facing one issue , Here in my system I can check log of last one month only for batch jobs in SM37.

I checked with basis team , they told me that jobs are deleted or archived from system which are more than one month old.

I checked different tables like TBTCO, TBTCP etc, All tables have information for last one month only.

I want to know is there any process to retrieve these jobs?

Need your expert solutions.

Thanks in Advance.

    If there is something so valuable in the job logs then we should not rely on them for the data retention. They can be deleted at any time and puff - gone.

    I'm curious - what is exactly the scenario when such information is needed?

    Ask basis to restore those from previous backup in some sandbox system, the standard report (*) doesn't "archive" (e.g. use SARA) those data as they are usually not collected for some Audit (**).



    (*) Check standard jobs in SM36 transaction : SAP_REORG_JOBS and SAP_REORG_JOBSTATISTIC or read OSS note 16083 - Standard jobs, reorganization jobs, or online help Technical Operations Manual for SAP NetWeaver : Background Jobs to Be Scheduled Regularly

    (**) Read 1072621 - Archiving job logs if some archiving is truly required (but you have to add a last step report to every job...)

    Did you ask your Basis team whether they are deleted or archived? If deleted, then they're gone. Because that's what deleted means. If they're archived, that means they're in an archive. But you need Basis to tell you what archive.
