IDOC Scripts in Redwood

Hi All,

In Cronalce 6.0.2 we have some scripts for IDOCs (examples - RSI_MAINTAIN_IDOC_INSTANCES, RSI_IDOC_IMPORT_MESSAGES). But I am not able to find the exact purpose of these scripts.

As the name suggests, I think RSI_MAINTAIN_IDOC_INSTANCES is to maintain the systems which are triggering inbound IDOCs in SAP. But now my question is - Does this mean that all IDOC processing will be handeled thru Redwood. Means the IDOC posting job drrectly getting triggered in Redwood and then executed in SAP.

What we are thinking is all the IDOC jobs which gets triggered in SAP because of Inbound / outbound processing, will be treated as ad hoc jobs and will be monitored / managed by Redwood based on interception settings for that SAP system.

Look forward for your expert conmments on this.. Thanks a lot in advance.

Best Regards,

Vithal

    Hi Anton,

    Thanks a lot for your quick help.

    Just to simplify my understanding - in normal scenario IDOC jobs should be treated as ad hoc jobs occurring in SAP system and should be monitored / controlled using Interception.

    The scripts mentioned above are not required to be used in normal scenario.

    Thanks for confirming.

    Best regards,

    Vithal

    Hi Vithal,

    The scripts you found are intended for IDOC monitoring only. IDOCs will always be processed/controlled by the SAP systems. The scripts are only used in very special scenarios.

    As you indicate, Redwood can influence/control the IDOC processing jobs in SAP, either through interception or through event-based triggering.

    Input for that process can be the job in SAP itself (and let Redwood intercept), external files that arrive (file event), alerts in the alert tree in RZ20 or SolMan (f.i. an alert on RFC queues raises an event which triggers a job), etc. etc.

    To configure this, you can use the available options for interception, (file-)events and alerting, just as you would use these for other processes that are not IDOC related.

    Regards,

    Anton.
