How to get rid of obsolete tasks in SAP IDM 8.0

Hello Experts,

In 8.0 we have observed that whenever we transport the package to another landscape after making changes, the task/job id's get changed and see the same job/task name with different task id. And these tasks are also linked to dispatchers. so every time after we transport, we have to link dispatchers again as these obsolete tasks wouldn't be triggered.

We are identifying the tasks as obsolete from the mxp_tasks or mc_jobs table.

Every time linking the dispatcher to the right job is time consuming.

    • Hello DP,

      are they really obsolet though? We're not on 8.0 yet, but what I remember from the training, you need those other versions in case you want to go back to them. Changing the task ID is SAP's way of doing the versioning in IDM. Greaaat idea in my opinion. Not. ^^
