Triggering an SMS text message from BRF Plus Collection Step

Hello Colleagues.

Has anyone successfully triggered an SMS text message to a mobile phone using BRF Plus ?

We have a requirement to do this from within a Collection Step in SAP IS-U.

Any feedback would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Ivor, BRF+ has a way to insert custom actions via static method call or FM call. I think you can code a static method call where you can plugin the code to call public remote API from SMS provider. Frequently, it is a REST API, ABAP has REST API library which you can use to make the calls. I believe this is how you can achieve your requirement.

    Best Regards, Yevgen

    Ivor:

    some things to consider...

    • brfplus in the dunning context can only be used to define the identity of the action to take - it cannot be used to perform the action itself.  this is the standard proposal/activity distinction.  the use of brfplus or dunning procedure does not help/hinder this requirement.
    • the dunning activity run would generate the actions.  typically this is run in the early AM.  is it expected to send the message at that time?  or to schedule it for a particular time, possibly based on some customer parameters?  You would need to define an activity which sends the SMS to the proper phone number.

    Hi Yevgen and Bill,

    Thanks a lot for your prompt feedback.

    It gives me an idea of what the capabilities as well as limitations are.

    Regards,
