finding out variant for batch job

This question is answered


A background batch job is triggered for a certain condition and the variant passed is the batch
number. In SM37, I can see numerous background jobs that were executed successfully. Is it
possible to find out the value of the variant that it was executed for?

Yes I can see a value for the variant here. But this is not the value of the batch number that the
background job selected ran. This is the value of the batch number for the current background
job. So this is incorrect

There is no report generated after the execution of the program so no output can be seen
