How to Configure a Separate Java Process for P6 Services (Job Services) in P6 EPPM 8.1 and Later (Doc ID 1357440.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 07, 2023

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document provides instructions for configuring P6 Services (Job Services) to run as a separate Java process or from a dedicated server with P6 EPPM r8.1 and later releases.

Job Services in P6 EPPM are automatically enabled in the database via the Primavera P6 Administrator, in the P6 configuration; however the Services can be disabled from one configuration and enabled in another so that Job Services are run as a separate application and/or from a machine dedicated to Job Services.  Starting with P6 EPPM r8.1, Oracle provides the p6services.jar file in the <P6 EPPM home>\p6 directory to accomplish this.  For medium to large deployments, Oracle recommends setting up a dedicated application server node for Job Services and the Services should be disabled for the P6 Web process.
