Schedule process chain without opening client

Dear experts,

Is there any way to activate and schedule a process chain without the client opened?

We normally make the changes in the process chain in development environment, when we transport it to quality or production we would like to activate and schedule it without having to open the client in those environments.

Thanks in advanced.

Kind Regards,

Pere

    Hello,

    To activated and schedule the process chain in production system (RSPC) does not required the open client.

    It can be done in productive system and no TR will be generated there. Also you can edit the process chain using transaction RSPC.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answer R. Brahmankar.

    We are transporting the process chain from development to quality with Immediate scheduling, when we schedule the chain in quality without the client opened the process is not running at all. If we do it withe client opened this is working fine.

    Also if we add some steps to the chain in development and transport to quality we cannot visualise those changes until we open the client in quality...

    Does anyone know what we need to do to solve this issue? We don't want to have to open client in quality or production every time we make some changes in the process chain.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Kind Regards,

    Pere

    Hello,

    RSPC - in Transport Connection > Object Changeability there is an option " Everything Changeable" you have to select that option for RSPC related objects.

    Right click on any object type you want to change and chose "Everything changeable"

    Once you transport the process chain to quality system, then you need to go to chage mode to save and activated it. After that you need to scheduled it as a job. I don't think we need a open client for that.

    Dear R.Brahmankar,

    We had already configured the changes you have mentioned.

    To go to change mode in quality system we have to open client in any case.

    Anyway, we have found the BAPI RSPC_CHAIN_ACTIVATE_REMOTE which allows us to schedule and activate the transported changes without having to go to change mode.

    Thanks for your support, I really appreciate it.

    Kind Regards,

    Pere

    • Hello,

      Nice to hear that, BAPI RSPC_CHAIN_ACTIVATE_REMOTE work for you. RSPC_API_CHAIN_SCHEDULE can help here too.

      However, RSPC - in Transport Connection > Object Changeability there is an option " Everything Changeable" you have to select that option for RSPC related objects.

      You have to do this in development system then transport to quality/production system then you can directly schedule the process there without opening the client.

      Best Regards,
