SM37 Simple Job Selection Authorizations


I am currently adjusting a role that run the transaction SM37. What I'm trying to do is limit the jobs the users can run. I.E. One person creates these jobs and they need to make it so other users can run these jobs but only his jobs and their own. I have been working with the auth objs. S_BTCH_ADM, S_BTCH_JOB and S_BTCH_NAM. It seems that when you put a 'Y' in S_BTCH_ADM it allows you to see everyones jobs whereas if you put a 'N' it limits you to almost no jobs that you can see. In the S_BTCH_NAM I have placed the users name in it and also a ' ' , for the users to see themselves. It seems that nothing will work without have the 'Y' in S_BTCH_ADM. If there is another way to approach this or if you have a solution to fix this please let me know.

    If "the other person" (i.e. the batch admin who scheduled the job) releases it for them, then all they need is transaction SMX to display their own jobs.

    Anyway, it is advisable to use SYSTEM type users for such jobs...

    PS: For further infos please take a look in the FAQ sticky thread at the top of the forum. There is a note there which explains exactly how these objects work in combination with each other and in which mode.
