Oracle Enterprise Scheduler is a backbone in an Oracle Fusion environment to automate processes that must recur on a scheduled basis and to defer heavy processing to specific time windows. Simplified Loader’s ESS Jobs Template eases the life of the users by enabling them to submit and view the status of the scheduled jobs.
Using ESS Jobs Template, you can organize jobs that you would generally submit manually using online line Oracle Fusion pages. A great use case of ESS Job usage is to submit month-end jobs in a controlled manner. During the month-end, it is a standard practice to submit jobs to process transactions and close Period. This task becomes time-consuming when ESS Jobs needs to run for every business unit or ledger. Using ESS Job Template, you can create a schedule of all programs in Excel sheet and submit the program in the sequence you want to process during month-end. To put the use case into context, if it takes ten minutes for a user to submit the same job for five different ledgers then using Simplified Loader it will take them just 2 seconds to submit the same job.
