Run batch jobs

Dynamics AX 4.0

By using batch processing, you can run jobs, which require many system resources, on a separate computer. This allows you to run jobs without slowing down your own computer, and you can continue to work normally while your jobs are being run. Batch jobs, once they are activated to run, are sent to a batch list, where they are queued, and eventually run when system resources are available.

A job cannot begin before an Microsoft Dynamics AX instance is started as a batch processor. You do not have to specify any start date/time, because the job just starts whenever the batch executor is available.

To have the batch job run on a regular basis, click to open a dialog box where the batch job can be set to recur on specified dates and times.


Batch jobs are executed using the privileges of the user who submitted the job and not with the privileges of the user or administrator who starts the batch process.
