Updated TJC archiving automation software based on latest SAP Archiving improvements

24-07-18

SAP has published improvements that will be implemented for Data Archiving and SAP ILM for Netweaver. 

These improvements were taken from an open invitation from SAP to 'Data Archiving and SAP ILM' users to participate and submit their feedback. We had shared the link to this feedback room on a post-DSAG conference blog post.

In summary, below are the improvements and related OSS Notes.

Implementation of standardization guidelines for all archiving objects    2635121, 2643118    SAP_BASIS 7.31

A lot of these provide increased ease of use during navigation.

If you have never used them, we suggest discovering: Transaction codes AS_AFB and TAANA.

Our favorite is note 2637105 for Dynamic default value for the archiving parameter "Text" for spool lists.


The program RSARCH_SWITCH_LIST_TITLE delivered has a new radio button "Text with Placeholders". The following placeholders are available:

  • <object>: This is replaced by the name of the archiving object at runtime.
  • <session>: This is replaced by the number of the processed archiving session at runtime.
  • <archive_key>: This is replaced by the key of the processed archive file at runtime in the case of delete jobs. This parameter has no effect for write jobs.
  • <job_type>: This is replaced by the job type at runtime (WRI = write job, DEL = delete job).
Our technical director predicts this feature will be enjoyed by many customers, therefore you will be glad to know that TJC Archiving Sessions Cockpit (ASC) already supports this.
