Alert if no file process :Same file adapter with same communication Channel

Hi XI Guru,

I have encountered 1 requirement from my client where, sender will send different data file with different file name. And there want XI to alert the user if no file to process for the schedule date. Please take note that the communication channel is common to all the sender.

Example:

Communication Channel : CC_FILE_SND

FILE_10.TXT ---> Every month on the 10, user have to send FILE_10.TXT to process

FILE_20.TXT ---> Every month on the 20, user have to send FILE_20.TXT to process

If user fail or forget to send the FILE_10.TXT and FILE_20.TXT on special schedule date to process, XI should alert user.

Many thanks

    Hi Lord

    <<< there want XI to alert the user if no file to process for the schedule date.

    Can you tell me how you are planning to configure this schedule date in your sender file adapter. I mean this date will be fixed or it is going to be change according to the requirement.

    Now for the second part in order to alert the user if file is not there, one solution is to use BPM with wait step ( specify the time in this step ), but then again it takes me back to my previous question, the time seems to be different everytime according to the requirement.

    Hi Lord,

    I have a work around for you.

    Place a dummy file in your FTP server apart from the one which needs to be actually picked. Design a BPM to receive these two messages in block. As per the poll interval you will pick the dummy file without deleting it and also actual message. Maintain the necessary branches as 1, also a wait step for some seconds in the branch which receives dummy file(to wait for the actual message picked in other branch) and then place if condition for the value pointing the data in actual message. If the condition fails then there is no file on the FTP server.

    If condition fails, use a control step there to send alerts. I think rest of the settings you know regarding ALRTCATDEF in ABAP stack.

    Regards,
