Last updated on APRIL 09, 2020

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version SP24 and later
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Sales Order Management - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


UBE execution or runtime issues are any issues that cause a batch application to not process or fail while processing on the server. This includes everything that happens AFTER the job record is added to the Job Master Table F986110. You can find more information about the job execution flow in <Document 1502974.1>.

If an issue is found while submitting the UBE to the server and a job record is not getting added to F986110, then this is considered to be a submission issue.  The submission process and common issues are covered in <Document 1498831.1> and <Document 1502927.1> respectively.

This document provides solutions to common UBE execution and runtime issues.
