Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

Execution Manager

The Execution Manager Dashboard shows you the status of scheduled jobs and integrations to quickly identify and troubleshoot errors.

You can view the number of jobs and integrations that have occurred in the past twenty-four hours, seven days, or fifteen days and whether they resulted in success or error. The Execution Manager logs are retained for a duration of 15 days, by default. Logs that are older than the retention period are automatically removed from the system. Execution Manager is included as part of Next Gen Admin. It doesn’t need to be enabled separately, but you do need to grant the appropriate permissions.

Integration Center Tab

The integration center enables HR business analysts to build, deploy, and monitor simple file-based outbound integrations. You can build integrations quickly and easily through a guided workflow. Predefined templates are available and you can also create your own templates. The Execution Manager shows you the status of custom integrations built in the integration center. You can view the status of recent outbound integrations on the Integration Center tile on the Admin Center page.On the Execution Manager page, you can select a time frame and see how many successful or failed custom integrations occurred during that time frame. You can view the exact date and time of execution and other event details, to help you troubleshoot any errors.

Scheduled Job Tab

You can view the status of recent jobs on the Scheduled Jobs tile on the Admin Center page. On the Execution Manager page, you can select a time frame and see how many successful or failed jobs occurred during that time frame. You can view the exact date and time of execution and other event details, to help you troubleshoot any errors.

Middleware Integrations Tab

You can view the status of middleware integrations on this tab. Middleware integrations allow for communications between disparate systems and SuccessFactors uses OData APIs.

Pre-Delivered Integrations Tab

When the endpoint is triggered for an event subscription which is created in Event Subscription Management or Intelligent Services Center, you can monitor the integration in Execution Manager under the Pre-Delivered Integrations tab. You can check using the name of the event subscription. Along with external event integrations, you can also monitor other real-time integrations under the Pre-Delivered Integrations tab.

For more information see the Using Admin Center guide on the SAP Help Portal.
