Alert's for Multiple Planning Book

Hello Experts,

We have created a macro, let's say for planning book1. Created a activity for the same. So once the job is executed we are able to see the alerts. Now the requirement is the same alerts has to be viewed in other planning books too (Say PB2 and PB2). One way is I can create a new activity for the PB2 and PB3. But again it's a performance problem for us. So please let me know is there any other way to implement this.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Siva.

    The only way you can generate the alert in the other planning book PB2 & PB3 is by executing a Macro in the other planning book. The macro needs to be executed to recognize the situaution and generate the alert. This is for Database type alert.

    The only other option you may have is to define a Dynamic alert which automatically recognizes the situation in all planning books. But this will be a very performance intensive and may be worse than seperatley triggering the macro in planning books PB2 & PB3.

    Hope this helps.

      Hi Siva,

      Sorry about the Dynamic Alert type option. You still need to include it in a macro and execute it. So, not sure whether it will help in your particular case.

      The only advantage ofcourse, is that if the alert situation is rectified, the alert automatically disappears whereas in database alert types you have to manually delete the alerts after rectifying the situation or use /SAPAPO/AMON_REORG.

      I'm afraid, either way you may need to execute the macros for PB2 & PB3. Nevertheless, you can still try defining a Dynamic alert type & use it in your macro similar to the regular ones and see if it helps in any way.

    Hi Siva,

    I think it is possible to assign the (macro-generated) DB Alerts to a different planning book. Using macro workbench, you can do this in the properties for the alert in a particular macro.

    We have a situation where a particular macro alert is executed in a background process in a background-only planning book. However, we assigned the alert to the interactive planning book, so the users can see it interactively. It also simplified the creation of the alert profile in /SAPAPO/AMON1. (We are on APO 5.0)

    The only shortcoming of this is that the alerts are no longer available in PB1. Once they are assigned to PB2, that's it.
