Why the process chain always run twice when triggered from R3?

I run a program from R3 by calling the remote function 'RSSM_EVENT_RAISE' on BW to trigger an event and in turn the event on BW bring up the running of a process chain. But whenever I run the program on R3 to bring up the running of the process chain, I find the process chain always run twice at the same time. Does anybody knows the answer?

And also I would like to know the functionalities of the two picture buttons "Activate" and "Activate and Schedule" in process chain. In which case the "Activate" button should be used and in which case, the "Activate and Schedule" button should be used? If we click the Start variant of a process chain, then click "Change Selections" button which bring up the window "Start Time" where the buttons "Immediate", "Date/Time", "After job", and "After event" are listed at the top. If we modify at any of the above buttons, then after save this modification, we will have to click "Activate and Schedule" button to make it work, right?

Thanks a lot and everyone's idea is greatly appreciated!

    Activate buttion is for checking/making the process chain is active.

    Active and schedule- for activate and schedule the process chain as per the variants- selection options.

    If you do modify any buttons in start variant you have to active the process chain otherwise the job will not schedule...

    thanks,

      First, I assume that you have only one Process Chain in your system. I don't want you to delete a job that is triggering another Process Chain. That said, it sounds like the job scheduled daily at 10:38:05 is a "left over" job. Maybe you originally scheduled your Process Chain to run immediately and hit the "Periodic Job" on your start condition? Then changed your start condition to be "After Event" and rescheduled your Process Chain?

      To do it the right way, I would select the option to "Remove from Schedule". This is done in the Process Chain maintenance screen. Bring up your Process Chain and at the top click on <u></u>P<u></u>rocess Chain, then "Remove from Schedule".

      After doing this, I would go back into SM37 to see if there are any BI_PROCESS_TRIGGER jobs still in a released status.

      If not, then go back to your Process Chain, double-click on your Start process, verify your start conditions, and save your Start process. Then Activate and Schedule your Process Chain. Once that is complete, go back into SM37 and verify that there is only one BI_PROCESS_TRIGGER job in a released status.

      You should be all set after that.

    Hi Kevin,

    In our production system also we encountered the same problem but it doesnt have any affect on ur loads.. So u can ignore this and continue to work with the PC as it will run fine..

    When ever if u scheduled a PC then u will get the last changed and last Activated in the Log View through that u can see which user has scheduled the PC.

    Regards-

    Hi Kevin,

    If u have both the job names as same then the approach given by the Shannon wont work here..

    As I said that this wont have any impact on the loads. So u can ignore this and continue to work with ur PC..

    Its better if u close ur previous threads if it fullfills ur requirement..

    Hi Shannon,

    Even if u reschedule ur chain also.. u will get two jobs in the log view.. I guess that there should be some settings where we have to change. But I'm not sure about that.
