How skip a workflow from running in a batch job with 5 workflows.

HI gurus

I am new to data services just wanted to know how can we skip one of the workflows under a Batch job every time we run the Batch job in Dataservies designer. I have 5 worflows in a batch job and when i test run the job it runs all of the workflows at the same time.

Secondly i want to understand more about what are the Try and Catch objects in the batch job for does anyone have some document or link.

Thanks

    Hi Adnan,

    If you are using the SAP Data Services 4.2 SP03+ then you can use the Bypass Function to skip the Dataflow or Workflow. For more about the ByPass functionality go through the below blog.

    Try & Catch Mechanism : The Try & Catch functionality is mainly used for error handling techniques. Suppose if you have a two workflows in the job(WF_A,WF_B). You have a requirement whenever the WF_A fails then at that point you need to trigger the WF_B then you can use this Try & Catch. Also Try & Catch performs lot of activities. Please go through the below link for more about the Try & Catch.
