    IDoc Monitoring


    You can easily and effectively monitor inbound and outbound processing of IDocs using special reports and graphic displays. An agent can also be notified automatically using a workflow if an “emergency” occurs (active monitoring).


    The following tools are available for monitoring:

    · IDoc Display

    IDoc Display


    This report generates a list of individual IDocs or, if you have restricted your selection to one IDoc using the available selection criteria, the report displays the relevant IDoc (for example, if you select only one IDoc number as a selection criterion).


    The IDoc display is under SAP Menu ® Tools ® IDoc Interface/ALE ® Administration ® Monitoring ® IDoc Display ® Display.

    Multiple IDocs

    If a list of IDocs is displayed, double-click on the corresponding entry to access an individual IDoc.

    A traffic light shows whether the current status is success or error, or a decision has not yet been made and further processing is required (yellow). You can change the assignment of traffic lights to the Status groups in the transaction WELI. See also: Edit Status Groups

    Individual IDocs

    General information

    The individual IDoc is displayed as a tree structure. The initial node is the IDoc number. The control record, data and status records are displayed as subnodes. You can expand nodes and display individual records. You only have to click on data records.

    By choosing Displaying Relationships from the Object Services you can display the objects that are already linked with the IDoc, for example, application documents or the corresponding IDoc in the partner system in ALE distribution.

    Control record

    The control record displays, for example, the “letter header” (sender and recipient), direction and IDoc type. You can edit the control record in Exception Handling (Control record ® Control/Change, see also the corresponding paragraph in the data records).

    Data records

    In the case of the data records, the segment name (E1 structures for SAP segments), segment number and short text are displayed. In the case of qualified segments, the “qualifier” is displayed (the value which determines the significance of the segment).

    In the case of segment E1EDKA1 (document header partner information), the qualifier PARVW = “SH” means that the partner specified in the segment has the function of the goods recipient, while the partner function of the sold-to party is defined as PARVW = “SP”. The qualifier is the first field in a qualified segment.

    If you want to edit an incorrect IDoc in Exception Handling, choose Data record ® Display/Change in the detail screen (double-click on symbol for the corresponding data record). You can now change all the fields. When saving, your IDoc assumes the new status 69 (IDoc edited) and you can then send it for inbound processing again. The original is saved as a new IDoc with the status 70 (original of an IDoc, which was edited) in the database.

    Status records

    In the case of status records, the individual status values (status) are displayed with a short text. In the case of Port type "tRFC" and status 03 the unique transaction ID which is assigned to the tRFC is displayed. If the application writes an error log, the ID of the log is also displayed and can be used to access the log (Goto ® Application log). This allows you to display more detailed error information than the data in the status records.

    All the other fields of the control record are available as selection criteria as well as partners and messages

    - IDoc numbers

    - Ports

    - IDoc types

    You can display a tree structure of the IDoc directly using the IDoc number. The IDoc list is displayed again if several IDocs are selected.

    · IDoc Statistics

    The IDocs are sorted and represented graphically according to predefined status groups. Lists and individual IDocs can be displayed using mouse clicks.

    · IDoc Search

    You can select IDocs according to their business content, that is, according to the data contained in the segments.

    · Error and Status Processing

    Error and status codes are defined for the IDoc transfer. These codes can be assigned to a workflow task, which informs the agent automatically in a procedure.

    · Monitoring the Inbound Queue

    If you can receive IDocs via qRFC, you can monitor the inbound queue using a special transaction.

    · Monitoring the Outbound Queue

    If you can send IDocs via qRFC, you can monitor the outbound queue using a special transaction.

    · Active Monitoring

    This function provides you with a report that informs you if the number of critical IDocs exceeds a certain threshold.

    1. WE05 To display the IDOCs.

    2. To see the IDOCs in the Receiving system (Inbound idocs) for the Respective Outbound idocs :

    in BD87.

    Select the Button TRACE IDOCS (Shift + F7) on the Application Toolbar.

    It will display the Corresponding Inbound Idocs.

    Note : We can also reprocess IDOCs from BD87.

    <b>reward if Helpful.</b>
