    Check transactions BD87 and BD88.

    IDOC monitoring tools can be accessed through transaction WEDI.

    You can easily and effectively monitor inbound and outbound processing of IDocs using special reports and graphic displays. An agent can also be notified automatically using a workflow if an “emergency” occurs (active monitoring).


    The following tools are available for monitoring:

    · IDoc Display

    All the other fields of the control record are available as selection criteria as well as partners and messages

    - IDoc numbers

    - Ports

    - IDoc types

    You can display a tree structure of the IDoc directly using the IDoc number. The IDoc list is displayed again if several IDocs are selected.

    · IDoc Statistics

    The IDocs are sorted and represented graphically according to predefined status groups. Lists and individual IDocs can be displayed using mouse clicks.

    · IDoc Search

    You can select IDocs according to their business content, that is, according to the data contained in the segments.

    · Error and Status Processing

    Error and status codes are defined for the IDoc transfer. These codes can be assigned to a workflow task, which informs the agent automatically in a procedure.

    · Monitoring the Inbound Queue

    If you can receive IDocs via qRFC, you can monitor the inbound queue using a special transaction.

    · Monitoring the Outbound Queue

    If you can send IDocs via qRFC, you can monitor the outbound queue using a special transaction.

    · Active Monitoring

    This function provides you with a report that informs you if the number of critical IDocs exceeds a certain threshold.

    Active Monitoring Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


    This report automatically informs the agents responsible if too many incorrect IDocs are found.


    Active monitoring is not used for processing or reimporting of an incorrect IDoc. Exception handling of every incorrect IDoc is responsible for this.


    You plan the report to run regularly with a variant. The variant also informs the report of the status values to be selected: If the critical status contains more IDocs than specified in the critical number of IDocs, a message is sent to a predefined recipient.

    The recipient receives the notification in the form of a work item displayed in their Business Workplace. If they execute the work item, the IDoc statistics are displayed with the values determined at the time of evaluation. The agent can display the current status of these IDocs using the Refresh function. The selection criteria which led to the notification are also used for this evaluation.


    An important customer orders goods using EDI on working days, between 8am and 6pm. These goods are to be delivered at 4pm the next day. To ensure that the delivery is made on time, the ordered quantity must be recorded by midday on the day of delivery. The active monitoring function is to be used at 8am every morning to determine whether there are any orders which could not be processed automatically. The report, therefore, is started at the same time every day and 0 is selected as the critical number of IDocs. The agent responsible is notified if any incorrect IDocs are found and can then manually process the outstanding orders by midday.

    For more information see

    Schedule Monitoring Job (example)

    A processing status is assigned to an IDoc during processing (e.g. Status03: Data Transfer to Port OK). These status values are in turn assigned to a higher level status group (e.g. Output: IDoc Transfer Successful). This assignment to a status group is referred to as Qualification. You can change the assignment of status values to status groups in the Edit Status Values transaction.



    1. To edit the status groups, choose the ALE customizing transaction SALE ® Set-Up System Monitoring ® Set-Up IDoc Status Display ® Edit IDoc Status Values (WE47).

    A list of statuses which have been defined is displayed.

    2. If necessary, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text. By double-clicking on the status that you wish to assign a different status group, the detail screen is displayed.

    3. The status group is displayed in the Qualification field. Use the F4 input help for an explanation of the numbers.

    4. Select Save.


    Status 25 (processing despite syntax error (outbound)) is assigned status group 1 = “Outbound: IDoc generated". Replace 1 with 5 for “Outbound: IDoc Interface error".

    Chek Tcodes in WE02 OR WE05
