Setting scope size on database.executeBatch

Hi folks,

 

I'm trying to limit the batch size on one of my scheduled batch jobs, and adding a scope parameter on my Database.executeBatch doesn't seem to be working.  Here's my code:

 

batchGenerateOriginalCS cCases = new batchGenerateOriginalCS();
       
cCases.query='SELECT Id, Some_other_fields__c From Case where Some_other_fields__c = 'A string' limit 16';

ID batchprocessid = Database.executeBatch(cCases, 15);

 

So as you can see, I'm testing this by limiting my query to 16, but have (tried to) set the scope on my executeBatch to 15. When I run this bad boy, it runs my batchGenerateOriginalCS class as it ought to, but on 16 cases rather than on 15.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Charlotte

Just to confirm - the scope limits the number of records executed in each batch - so the code above should initiate two execution of the batch - one with 15 cases, and one with one...

 

You are seeing just one execution, with all 16 cases in the single execution of the batch?

Oooh, I see what you're saying - and I see what I did now. Thanks for that. You're dead right - it was 2 executions, one of 15 and one of 1.

 

Thank you! :)
