SM37 -Job History how to increase beyond 10 days?


Am not aware of this basis activity of job schedules history maintenance and how it is done.

Can anyone help.

I see the following jobs running on the system and the history is maintained only for 10 days.


How can we increase this history details to say 2 weeks or 1 month if there is a requirement.

Is there any parameter - which will restrict the history to 10 days or would help to increase the time period to any desired level ?

Can anyone advise on this ?

    The job SAP_REORG_JOBS delete all the history of your job

    the job SAP_REORG_SPOOL delete all the history of your spool

    if you want to change the parameter of the job you need to go to program RSBTCDEL

    and change the variant for this program

    • Hi Naor.

      thank you very much.

      In se38 : RSBTCDEL

      As suggested i have created a new zvar1 for 15 days and used that variant for job : SAP_REORG_JOBS. Kept this for testing on a test server, so that we could do the same on production server.

      Hope the same holds good for the spool delete as well : RSPO0041

      Thanks again.
