 Error: Job Scheduling Was Unsuccessful Locate this document in the navigation structure


Scheduling a job can be unsuccessful if the technical name of the report or variant was changed after the flow definition was created. This means that the technical names in the flow definition no longer exist.

Error Handling

The workflow recognizes the error and issues an error message displaying the faulty technical name of the report or variant.

The message is linked to a user decision. This message is sent as a top priority mail to the person whose name is entered in the detail screen for maintenance of jobs in the flow definition, in the When error, mail to section (see also: Creating a Flow Definition ). That person receives the message in their mail inbox.

There are two options in the user decision.

Continue the flow with the next task

You choose this option if:

  • You corrected the error and rescheduled the job manually in a separate session, and are waiting for the job to be executed.

  • You executed the transaction online.

  • You decided that the error is not relevant.

Reschedule the job

You choose this option if you corrected the error and would like to use the Schedule Manager to control the rescheduling of the job.
