Background Jobs

I have a background job with 4 steps (4 report programs) that runs every 5 minutes. The first step determines if the Job is still running from the previous periodic start. In other words, the previous job is running beyond the 5 minute mark. When this happens, I want to stop processing the second job and bring it to a normal end. Currently, we are aborting the first step which cancels the job. Our operations department is notified that a job has cancelled. This is causing unnecessary communications.

How can I end a job at step one without canceling?

    Hello, you might replicate the check to see if the previuos job is still running in every step of your chain so that every step terminates normally without doing nothing when the previuos job is still running.

    Regards, Luciano
