Detailed Description and Symptoms
When attempting to run an SAP job with R3_ACTIVATE_JOBS, the job will finish in SAP without any problems, but Automic will show the message:
 
U2004094 Job 'TEST_JOB' is duplicated. New job name = '', new job number '<new number>'.
U2004081 Error in function 'BAPI_XBP_CONFIRM_JOB': 'Job confirmation has failed', Type: 'E', ID:'XM', number: '094'
         Job confirmation has failed
U2004137 Cannot confirm job, job name = '', jobcount = '<new number>'
U2004081 Error in function 'BAPI_XBP_JOB_START_ASAP': 'Job name missing (function BAPI_XBP_JOB_START_ASAP)', Type: 'E', ID:'XM', number: '046'
         Job name missing (function BAPI_XBP_JOB_START_ASAP)
U2004025 Job-script execution was aborted.

Solution
This issue occurs because the parameter:

NEW_NAME=''

is being used in the rfc command.  To resolve this, go to the Process tab of the job and either remove the phrase:

NEW_NAME=''

or change it to:

NAME=""
