To enable the notifications to be sent out regularly the program /BTI/AUT_NOTIFICATION_ENGINE must be set to run as a batch job at regular intervals. When determining the periodicity of the batch job, consider the following.
- The minimum “delay” you want between a one-off event (e.g,, a playback finishing) occurring and a notification being received
- The minimum period defined for a recurring notification (e.g., how frequently recording status updates are sent)
- The periodicity of the batch job that runs SAPCONN01 to send emails using SAPConnect
Setting up the Batch Job
Use SM36 to set up the program /BTI/AUT_NOTIFICATION_ENGINE as a SAP standard batch job. It is recommended that you don’t select any Notifications Types or Notification Schedules so you don’t need a variant, however, it is possible to have more frequent runs for certain selections if you want a more complex setup.
