Running Forecast in the backgrd chooses Forecast from the INTERACTIVE mode

Folks

When I tried to run forecast through background job, instead of running the forecast based on the Master Profle & Univariate profile I had defined in the Activity, forecast is being run based on the Master Profle & Univariate profiles specified in the Interactive mode?

I had even tried by checking the "Always use job profile' checkbox in the background activity but this didnt work ?

Are there any other extra settings I need to make to overcome this problem ? Any ideas or suggestions ?

TIA

    check the selection iD for which you are running the forecast ....

    or check the spool, had it thrown any errors...and list the details, we can help you.

    Please check following :

    /n/sapapo/mc8t transaction has Master profile & Univariate profile defined

    /n/sapapo/mc8e transaction has selection id and aggregation level choosen , also make sure that version specified is the same here and this job has same activity defined here what you declared in previous step .

    Make sure that job has run without errors .

    This should solve your problem

    I think that is an expected behaviour. The idea is that the users or the planners are supposed to vett the forecast profile in interactive mode, change/fine-tune the profile and set it up for background mode. You cannot have a different profile for background in that case. If you want the master profile to be used, you might want to consider deleting the the interactive profile or may have to explore user-exits that gets invoked on clicking stat forecast function.

      Hi Srinivas

      I do have one question based on your response. This scenario might not arise in the real scenario.

      As each selection profile can be assigned with a different forecast profile in the Interactive planning/forecasting mode, what Forecast profile would the system use in mass processing, as the Activity assigned to background job can have only one Master and Forecast profile and the selected ID's in this example has more than one Master and Forecast profile.

      Thanks
