Schedule background job for updating business data in S/4HANA Cloud (essential)

Active Participant

we're currently implementing S/4HANA Cloud (essential) 2008 and came across the following requirements: the "customer classification" (KNA1-KUKLA) shall be periodically set depending on sales order information. Meaning: once a month the classification should be calculated depending on current sales figures of a customer.

So, actually we need to schedule some kind of job calling custom-specific coding/logic for calculation of the classification value and update it via API.

Is there a best-practise approach for such kind of requirement?

Thanks & regards

Hi Wolfgang,

While I'm not familiar with all the details of S/4 HANA extensions, it should be a matter of writing a small Cloud Foundry application that exposes an HTTP endpoint that can then be called with the job scheduler.

Seems like a good use-case. I'm surprised there isn't already a mechanism for doing this, unless it's a very customer specific thing to determine the classification.

I don't have a direct solution for you but will keep your question in mind.
