Object Classes and Object Types
There are four object classes: executable, active, passive and system objects.
These are objects that can be processed manually or through control mechanisms of superordinate objects. They experience the stages of activation, start and execution.
|Event Object (EVNT)||
Determines conditions and reaction to occurring conditions.
|File Transfer Objects (JOBF)||Exchanges files of any kind between systems and system platforms.|
|Job Group (JOBG)||Executes sporadic tasks.|
|Job Object (JOBS)||Determines the process steps to be executed in a target system.|
|Notification Object (CALL)||Notifies an operator of an interruption in a task, the completion of which represents a necessary precondition for the execution of further tasks.|
|Remote Task Manager Object (JOBQ)||Monitors and controls external jobs that were not started by your system.|
|Schedule Objects (JSCH)||Starts executable objects at regular intervals.|
|Script Object (SCRI)||Contains processing instructions that are not processed on a target system and implemented exclusively with script elements.|
|Workflow Definition — Overview||Compiles single tasks for combined execution via defined conditions and dependencies.|
Active objects contents can be modified manually or while processing an executable object.
|Calendar Object (CALE)||
Defines calendar days that can be considered as starting conditions when executing tasks.
|Queue Object (QUEUE)||
Defines the maximum number of parallel running tasks and the corresponding priority.
|Sync Object (SYNC)||Synchronizes executable objects on the basis of defined conditions and actions.|
|Variables (VARA)||Stores values statically or retrieves them from a data source dynamically.|
Passive objects are objects whose contents are defined by the user. They are static. Their contents cannot be modified when processing an executable object but they are still used.
|Code Table Object (CODE)||
Defines a complete set of characters.
|Dashboard Object (DASH)||
Summarized view of objects, activities, execution data, etc. that is freely definable.
|Documentation (DOCU)||Administrates documentation that does not refer to a single object.|
|Filter Object (FILTER)||Contains filter definitions for the contents of reports and external files.|
|Include Object (JOBI)||Contains commonly used processing instructions from AE Script for shared use through objects.|
|Period Object (PERIOD)||Used to further determine the "Execute Recurring" option available for executable objects.|
|PromptSet (PRPT)||Input mask that can be assigned to executable objects and which reads user values during the activation process.|
|Storage Object (STORE)||Central file storage (binary data).|
|StyleSheet Object (XSL)||Formats XML reports.|
System objects serve to administer your system.
|Agents (HOST)||Enables the execution of jobs, file transfers, console and file-system events, thereby facilitating the processing of various operation steps in a target system.|
|Agent Groups (HOSTG)||Combines agents and can be used to process tasks on one particular or several agents.|
|Agent Client Assignment||Assigns agent rights to individual or all clients.|
|Client Objects (CLNT)||Defines a fully self-contained environment for the execution of tasks within a system.|
|Connection Objects||Contains connection parameters to an external target system.|
|Folder Object||Folders are objects as well.|
|Login Object (LOGIN)||Saves login data for agents.|
|Server||Represents a server process.|
|Time Zone Object (TZ)||Records values for the calculation of local time.|
|User Object (USER)||Records the user login settings, assignments to user groups, folders and access rights.|
|UserGroup Object (USRG)||Groups users in order to assign them identical authorizations.|
Other Object Types
The following extra objects are available for the following object types:
|C_HOSTG||Container of an Agent group|
|C_PERIOD||Container of a recurring task|
|JOBD||Child tasks of SAP jobs|
