BPC 10 Package User

We have a number of packages schedule in Production that were created & scheduled by a consultant and execute using their username in BW. I want to switch these to use a generic batch user so I can remove the consultanst ID - how do I do this as I cannot see anything in the 'Edit SChedule'box to allow me to do so.

    "were created & scheduled by a consultant and execute using their username in BW" - bad idea!

    Stop and delete schedule!

    Schedule again under correct user

    • I would do that, but the batch user would be something like ALEREMOTE as I would use for BW jobs but I wouldn't be able to log on as ALEREMOTE.

      Is there no way to change the user like you can do for example on a job in ECC, or a table I can edit that holds the schedule informmation where I can change the user?

    "Is there no way to change the user like you can do for example on a job in ECC, or a table I can edit that holds the schedule informmation where I can change the user?" - Do you really want issues? Packages use some BPC authorizations!

    To schedule job in BPC you need a valid BPC user. Login and perform required scheduling!

    Hello,

    I am curious, if you do SM37 and filter with BPC_* for the job name, what user do you see? Do you see the consultant's user ID or BPC service user ID?

    Best Regards,

    • UJD_TEST_PACKAGE is a BPC program that is for the convenience of BPC users but I don't think that is the only way to schedule a job. SM37 has the options to directly schedule a job. I had a case just two weeks ago regarding some scheduled job not behaving and when I checked the normal places like SLG1 and SM21 I could not find any messages with the dialog user's user ID. When I enquired the customer said the reason was the jobs were scheduled.
