Display Dynamic alerts in AMON1

Hi APO experts,

Need some help on how dynamic alert works in APO.

There are dynamic alert types 4200-4203 exist in the system, i think those are standard ones. And there are macros existing in the SNP planning books as well. I have setup the overall profile and application-specific alert profile for SDP, i tick all those dynamic alert types and maintained the threshold values. At the bottom, i put my SNP planning book data view and selection profile. Now if i go to interactive planning, i run the macro, i could see the alerts. however, in AMON1, i couldn't see anything. I have assigned myself to the SDP profile in transaction /SAPAPO/SDPALPR.

My questions are:

1. Is it possible to display dynamic alerts in AMON1 transaction for SNP planning books?

2. What is the right way to make the dynamic alerts work ? Even in interactive planning mode, do i have to run the macro to get those alerts? If someone could provide a link about the process, it would be very appreciated!

Thank you!

Anna

    Hi Anna, please check consulting note 495166, in which it says: "If you want to see dynamic alerts on standalone AMON or SCC, you have to define the corresponding dynamic alert macros as 'default' macros in the macrobuilder (see note 380300 for more details)."

    Hello Anna,

    Here are my answers to your questions.

    #1 ----> Yes, it it possible to display dynamic alerts in AMON1 transaction for SNP planning books. Pre-requisite is Alert Macro is set as a "Default" in Macro workbench /SAPAPO/ADVM

    #2 ----> As per SAP Help, Dynamic alerts reflect the current planning situation that is stored in the SAP liveCache.

    Based my understanding, Dynamic Alerts are created by writing macro which check planning situation if there is any exception, and then it (dynamically) raises an alert in the planning book(at runtime). It is important to set this alert macro as Default. So dynamic alerts get generated as and when the data is changed in the planning books. they do not wait for you to run the macro, it runs behind the scene due to its default event type.
    FYI - A default macro is executed when the planner opens the planning desktop and loads data, regenerates the screen (for example, by choosing Enter or Tab), or saves the plan.

    Note Unlike Database alerts, which are stored in database table: /SAPAPO/AM_ALERT, Dynamic alerts are not saved in the database. Another point Dynamic Alerts can slow down the performance.

    For additional details, Please refer this Consulting SAP Note#495166 - Tips and Tricks for Handling Alert Monitor.

    Also link to SAP Help:

    Monitoring of Macro-Dependent Alerts (DP and SNP) - Monitoring Alerts for Demand Planning (DP) - SAP Library

    Also on google when you will search for this - "Implementing the alert monitor functionality using macro". You will get a link to PDF document from sdn.sap.com

    Hope this will help.

    Thank you
