2241296 - Scheduled Jobs: "Regenerate Matrix Placement History" job being created in Manage Scheduled Jobs


After b1508, a new instance of the “Regenerate Matrix Placement History” job would be created in “Manage Scheduled Jobs” in the back end of the instance for each time that the job was executed. This resulted in several equal jobs being created, as this job could be executed several times a day because the “Matrix Placement History” is regenerated every time there is a rating change. Please refer to KBA 2219783 for more information on the Matrix Grid Placement History.

Our Engineering Team has identified root cause and developed a fix that will be included with b1511 release (SCM-8262). With this fix, a new instance of the job will only be created on the “Monitor Jobs” page in the back end of the instance, which is the intended behavior.

However, this fix does not remove the jobs that were automatically created. To remove these jobs, it is possible to execute a script for the environment. If you would like to execute this script, please contact SuccessFactors Cloud Product Support.

Note: Script is available as internal memo to this KBA.
