HANA - Job

Sap Hana Architecture


To schedule a job against HANA, you may choose:

  • your scheduler with the hdbsql command line
  • or the HANA solution with the XS application server.



Take your favorite scheduler and execute the following statement:

hdbsql -n host:port -u userName -p pwd "call myProcedure(myVariable)"


XSJOBs can directly call a Stored Procedure as well as XSJS services created in an XS application.

  • Create the job file .xsjob that defines details of the recurring task (Text editor)
  • Maintain the corresponding runtime configuration for the xsjob (SAP HANA administrator XS Job Dashboard)
  • Enable the job-scheduling feature in SAP HANA XS (SAP HANA administrator XS Job Dashboard)
  • Check the job logs to ensure the job is running according to schedule (SAP HANA administrator XS Job Dashboard)


Enable the job scheduling feature in SAP HANA.

System -> xsengine.ini -> scheduler -> enabled.
