Delete old users/jobs in sm37

We have some old jobs created in SM37 (R/3 4.7)

Some of the people who created the jobs has now left the company.

How do I assign the jobs to a another user so we get rid of old names in jobs "created by" column in sm37.

    Hello,

    Job 'Created by' cannot be changed unless you copy the job and modify it. But batch user name can be changed using SM37 in Change mode.

    Thanks,

    Venu

    Brian,

    Not all jobs created by people who have left will be necessary to run in the system.

    Create a standard user, exclusively for running background jobs, login with the user, go to sm37, list the jobs created by people who have left, copy them and delete the earlier scheduled instance of the job. Schedule the job, created under the new id as per your requirements.

    Make sure you delete the earlier jobs with status as scheduled / released / ready / active, or else they will trigger another instance of the job under the old user-id's
