Most testing will require that batches be run in order to post transactions to the Labor or General Ledger, or to create documents or other transactions.
Steps to run Batch Jobs
When a test process requires that batches are run, the batch jobs with their names will be listed in the order that they should be run.
Following are the steps to run a batch job. In this example, we will be running the NightlyOutJob.
1) Log in as khuntley.
2) Search for or open menu link Batch Schedule. Batch Schedule is located in the System menu group.
3) The Batch Job Lookup opens. Enter the job name in the Job Name field and select Unscheduled Job Group. Click Search.
4) Clicking Search returns Search Results. Click the Modify link.
5) Clicking the Modify link, opens the Modify Batch Job page. Click the Run button.
6) Clicking the Run button, will update the Job Status. It might be pending, running or succeeded. If you have to run additional jobs, you can click the Return to Lookup button to return to the Batch Schedule Lookup. From here you can look up the job you just ran to verify it succeeded and/or to run the next job in the sequence.
If a job fails or you want to see a file or report generated by the job, refer to the Batch File article for additional information.
