Scheduler service on EP 5.0 SP5

HEllo all,

we used the scheduler service in EP 5.0 SP4 for launching a BAPI/RFC to an R/3 system and perform some operations: in the EP 5.0 SP5, we are not able to find the way to add a new task/service in the Scheduler for this particula type of operations (launch a BAPI via RFC to an R/3 system).

Many thanks in advance for every suggestion.

Kind regards

Andrea Bergamasco

    In the Knowledge Management platform, scheduler tasks are automatically started and executed at predefined times by the scheduler service. The tasks are from different CM applications and service.


    In a load-balancing environment, scheduler tasks can be distributed amongst various CM installations in order to increase performance.


    The following tasks exist in the KM platform and must be assigned to Content Management systems.

    ·        Scheduler Tasks for Time-Based Publishing

    ·        Content Exchange Task Queue Reader

    ·        Index Service Task Queue Reader

    ·        Polling Scheduler Task

    Unfortenately I do not know about a BAPI RFC scheduler task. Can you provide additonal information?

    You may develop your own custom scheduler: See SP4 guide.

      Since SP5 the scheduler service uses the config framework to store its tasks and times. This means that you have to create a Configurable that extends the which points to your scheduler task implementation along with the properties your tas krequires, like in the following example:

      Such a file has to be placed in the folder than After a restart of the engine it is mandatory to create an instance of SampleCrawlerSchedulerTask via the Configuration UI. Don't forget to activate the new scheduler task in the scheduler service's configuration.
