Business value

  • It's no longer necessary to assign batch jobs to batch servers.
  • Offers a near-zero downtime experience for all Finance and Operations customers.

Feature details

Priority-based scheduling decouples batch groups from the batch server and allows you to define priorities for batch groups.

It's no longer necessary to assign batch jobs to batch servers. Instead, relative scheduling priorities based on business requirements are used to determine the order in which tasks are run across available batch servers. The available values for the scheduling priority are Low, Normal, High, Critical, and Reserved capacity.

This feature will help to remove the dependency on batch jobs associated with a batch server and enables a path for near-zero downtime for servicing, security patching, and quality updates.
