IP10 - restart Maintenance Plan (SAP Version 4.7)


We have a client who is currently on version 4.7 and has a requirement to restart a Maintenance Plan via either a FM or a BAPI.

I know in ECC 6.0 there are many FM's starting MPLAN* (specifically MPLAN_RESTART would be the correct one to use) but these do not exist in version 4.7!!

Is there a way of calling IP10 and restarting the Maintenance Plan by a bespoke program - BDC or some other method?

    Hello Gary,

    As you've already mentioned, this should be possible through BDC program. Your ABAPer should try it. I do not think there is any other method in the absence of information about fms at this version level.

    Implicit enhancement points in program SAPLIWP3 could be another option.
