Unable to update table from background job.

hi All,

I am using one background job in my workflow, this job uses method of a class to update database table.

But it is not performing the same, whenever it reaches that activity containing background job, got stuck at that point only.

But when i am performing the same action manually, i.e; executing the class method manually, it is working fine.

Any idea why it is not working from background job.

I checked the bindings also, i also checked container element, importing parameter is properly set.

Still my method is not working from workflow.

    Did you try to check any dumps are generated in the backend system by using the xn ST22

    Does the method return anything, like a return code or a success message?

    • Hi Amar

      It is required to be checked whether the system is actually invoking the method at all in the background task. For this you can use a dummy variable in TVARVC and update a value say X in your method. If you run this method in foreground, off course it will update the dummy variable with flag 'X' but it would be intresting to see whether the same variable is updated when the task is run in the background. You can also update the above flag in the Sy-subrc check for your updation. Whenever it is not zero, you can write it to dummy variable.

      If you establish that its not accessing the method or updating the infotype, then look for SU53 screenshot whether there is a authorization failure or not.

    Hi Amar,

    maybe the workflow-customizing of your System is incomplete. Check SWU3 whether the background tasks are customized.
