BPM: Send step with acknowledgment - Application

Hi folks,

I’ve a simple BPM with receiver(sender file)->mapping->send(IDoc receiver). The Send step is configured with the option Acknowledge type -> Application. The scenario runs well, the IDoc is successfully processed, but my BPM remains waiting with the clock icon!!! Going to sxi_monitor, in the PE details is a step waiting for an event from R/3 with the message “Waiting for an event SEND_OK_APPLICATION type CL_SWF_XI_MESSAGE. It seams waiting for an event that R/3 didn’t send… Did I miss some steps at R/3?

The idea is to receive an ack after my IDoc is successfully processed at R/3, in order to finish the BPM.

Regarding Acknowledgment type -> Application, the sap help says:

Wait for Acknowledgement

Specify whether the send step is to wait for an acknowledgement. To receive an acknowledgement in the send step, the receiver (adapter, business system, and so on) must send the corresponding acknowledgment.

Application - Specifies that the message was processed successfully by the receiver application (for example, ‘posted’).

I guess it should works, but maybe I'm missing something. Anyone knows how to work with this kind of ack at ccBPM?

Thanks in advance,

Ricardo.

    Please look into this thread I raised a few months back. Working on Idoc ack's and figuring them out took me sometime, but I do hope this thread can start of as the starting point.

    Idoc Acknowledgements and BPM.

      Hi guys,

      Sorry the delay, but it is fixed! I had one correlation key field wrong… duh! 😊

      Now I’m dealing with other problem, but I’ll open a new thread for that.

      Once again, thank you all for all your helpful tips.

      Ricardo.

    Ricardo:

    Did you configure the ALE audits for IDOC. As far as I know, IDOC acknowledgments can be triggered only if you configure ALE audits.. Please go through " How to: Handle Acknowledgments for IDOC" document

    HI Ricardo,

    if my understanding is correct then your BPM is wainting for Acknowledgement from R/3.

    is the acknowledgements configured at R/3 for that idoc type?

    what ever you did at XI is correct.

    Ricardo,

    Yes the bpm will wait......since you have requested an acknowledgement but its not been recieved, you can bypass it if you want to finish the scenario, Then work on

    the aleaud part, for which as others have mentioned you need to set up idoc acknowledgements..this link might be useful
