I am new to dynamics 365 and I am a bit confused about what are batches and batch processing and what is its use? everywhere they have written steps to create batch jobs but not explained what are exactly batches.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Batch jobs are tasks that the user or administrator submits for automatic processing, instead of running them in the client session right after a button has been clicked. Batch jobs are executed by the Application Object Server (AOS). Most of the Periodic tasks and Reports in AX can be set up to run as a batch. You can identify those tasks and reports by checking if there is a "Batch" tab page in the startup/parameter dialog of the task/report.
Here's some information about the topic: create a batch job
A batch job is a group of tasks that are submitted to an AOS instance for automatic processing.
The tasks in a batch job can run sequentially or simultaneously. In addition, you can create dependencies between one task and another. This means that you can set up a different sequence of tasks, depending on whether an earlier task succeeds or fails.
Batch jobs are run by using the security credentials of the user who created the job.
Batch jobs run on a per-partition basis. A system administrator can create, change, and view the history for the batch jobs in each partition. The batch job administration forms show information about batch jobs only for the partition to which you are currently logged on.
Some typical use cases for batch processes:
- Post invoices
- Import some data from fileshare
- Export some data to fileshare
- Create planned production orders
Batch jobs are handled by two different frameworks: RunBaseBatch (older framework) and SysOperation (a newer framework). From user perspective they work the same. If you are interested in developing batch jobs, you can find more information about both frameworks by searching the web.
Batch jobs can be scheduled to run on a specific date and at a specific time, or they can simply be added to the batch list where they will be queued to be processed as soon as the batch server is able to.
Batch processing is when jobs are executed in sequence without any user interaction. The jobs are submitted to a central batch list by users where they are queued and processed in chronological order.
