    Hi Yinglak,

    e.g. in an async. Scenario. You are waiting for an acknowledgement for a message you had sent to a receiver. Maybe you would like to inform the sender of the origin message, that after 4 days a acknowledgement is still NOT received.

    Regards Mario

    Hi,

    To monitor whether particular steps are executed at a particular point in time, you must first define a deadline.

    To do so, insert the step to be monitored in a block and then define a deadline branch for the block. This deadline branch and the steps it contains will be executed if the deadline is not met. This does not affect the remaining steps in the process, however. Note in particular that no steps are terminated automatically.

    Please go through the real time usage of Deadline bracnk in one of the scenario

    Hi,

    Deadlines are used to end the corresponding open steps and proceed with either triggering an alert, throwing an exception or just continuing to the next step, depending on your needs. You define the maximum time given to a specific step to be executed in your process by using deadlines.

    From SAP Help:

    A deadline specifies the last point in time that the block can be executed. You can define a deadline as follows:

    ● The point in time when the step or process is generated

    ● An arbitrary point in time that you specify as an expression

    You define how you want the process to react if the deadline is exceeded in a separate branch. In this branch you can trigger an alert for Alert Management by using a control step, for example. The branch has read and write-to access to all data within the block.

    To define a deadline, call the context menu for that particular block.

    The system checks the deadline at runtime. If the deadline has been exceeded, the processing branch is executed for the deadline. The steps in the remaining processing branches in the block are not affected by this. In particular, note that these steps within a block are not automatically completed.

    You can find more information here:
