Trapping AF errors using Alert framework in XI 3.0 SP13


I am trying to setup alert categories and rules to trap AF related errors - like a SOAP receiver adapter failing to call a webservice etc...

I came across earlier threads that mentioned, alerts will not be triggered involving AF in SP13 - in other words, one has to be on SP14 inorder for the alerts involving AF to be triggered - irrespective of all the settings being done to trigger alerts in SP13 ( End-to-End monitoring, SXMSALERT_PROCESS_DATA_GET etc )

Is the above statement true ??

Thanks for your time in advance.

    Hi Karthik,

    Yes, AF alerts using Alert Rules in RWB is available only from SP14. Infact we had raised note on this with SAP and we got the reply saying it is available only from SP14.

    There is another interesting thread on trapping adapter engine errors using CCMS.

    I have not tried it , may be you can check with naveen for more information on this..

      Hi Kartik,

      CCMS will anyway be helpful for monitoring Heartbeat of java components like IR, ID, Mapping Runtime and XI QRFC queues whcih are not part of XI Alert Framework...

      Yes, there is some risk involved , unless someone has tried configuring CCMS for Adapter Engine alerts and ensured that it is working as expected in SP13.

      There are few weblogs for CCMS setup have look at these...

    My objective is to send alerts regarding errors on the AF as emails to specific business users.

    With this CCMS based alert monitoring in SP13, and by defining a CCMS - alert category based alert rule, can I send the alert on the AF - trapped by CCMS to invidual email ids over the internet ?

    Naveen, if you happen to catch this thread, please provide your inputs on this question.

      here is an extract on how to do

      Configuring CCMS Alerts for the Adapter Engine

      If processing of a message on the Adapter Engine fails, the message state is changed to faulty. To notify administrators immediately of such processing failures, they can be propagated as alerts to CCMS. As CCMS is the SAP standard interface to third-party monitoring tools, these failure events may also become visible in non-SAP monitoring tools.

      Configuration Steps

      To make use of Adapter Engine alerts, you must configure the connection to CCMS as follows:


      1. Make sure that the J2EE engine on which the Adapter Engine is running is configured to be monitored by the central CCMS system.

      To do so, execute transaction RZ20 on your central monitor server. There, the J2EE engine should be visible in the CCMS monitor under SAP J2EE Monitor Templates ® All Systems. If not, follow the steps described in the Supportability Setup Guide for SAP NetWeaver 04 on SAP Service Marketplace at ® Cross-NW.

      2. Check whether the Adapter Engine is configured to report errors to CCMS.

      To do so, start the Visual Administrator and select service SAP XI AF Core. The value of property CCMSEnabled must be set to true (in lower case letters). If it is not, change the property value to true and restart the service.

      To verify that the setting is effective, select the Visual Administrator Monitoring service. Under Root ® Applications, you should see a node for the Adapter Engine.
