Use this form to activate a production flow version. When a production flow version is created and configured, it must then be activated before it can be used in production or replenishment activities. As a prerequisite step to activation, you must successfully validate the production flow version to make sure that the production flow activities are configured correctly.

The activate function is only available when an inactive production flow version is selected on the Versions tab. You can set up synchronous processing or batch group processing of production flow versions. Warnings and error messages are displayed in an Infolog.

Only one version of a production flow can be active at a time. There can be multiple versions that are activated, but the validity dates cannot overlap.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.




Enter the name of the production flow.


Enter the identifier of the version of the production flow.

  1. In any batch-enabled form or report, click the Batch tab.

  2. Select the Batch processing check box.

  3. Set any of the following options:

    • Caption – Enter a description for the job.

    • Batch group - Assign the job to a batch group.

      Batch groups are designed to enable you to run specific types of jobs on a specific batch server, or to run jobs on batch servers that are available at specific times. Batch groups are created by system administrators.

    • Private – Select this check box to restrict other users from processing your batch job. A private job can be run only by the user who submitted it, from the Set up batch processing form, and only on the computer where the user is logged on.

  4. Click Recurrence to configure a batch job to recur on a specific schedule.

  5. Click Alerts to configure alerts for a batch job.

Note Note

The Start date at the bottom of the form lists the next scheduled start time for the batch job.
