    First start by creating the alerts with this BLOG


    Have a look at this SAP help file while creating the Container variables in the above Blog

    To send email to mail box automatically when alert occurs in XI

    Can you check whether the below authorization is given to that user.

    For the sending of alerts via external communication methods (e-mail, sms, fax) and for inbound processing, an RFC user has to be created on the central alert server with the role SAP_BC_ALM_ALERT_USER. The authorization objects contained in this role are S_OC_SEND and S_RFC.

    refer the help:


    check in ALRTCATDEF transaction what is the user maintained under the fixed receipent tab for that user check the email address in SU01 transaction.

    Please check in transaction SCOT (you can give address of your SMTP server in order to send mails),

    If it is configured then probably you need to personalized alert delivery. In alert inbox you can select personalized alert delivery and check for "Mail" option.

    In SCOT you can see how many mails have beed sent via your XI system.

    most of the time email problem is solved by correcting configuration in SCOT. For testing mail system click on System->short message and then send one message to yourself

      Hi Vamsi,

      For raising an alert you need to first configure the alert please follow the below weblog written by Michal Krawczyk


      Configuration steps are: go to transaction ALRTCATDEF

      1) Define Alert Category

      2) Create container elements which are used for holding an error messages.

      3) Recipient Determination.

      Alert can be triggered in different ways.

      1) Triggering by Calling a Function Module Directly.


      2) Triggering by Calling a Function Module in the Workplace Plug-In.

      3) Triggering with an Event Linkage.

      4) Triggering with the Post Processing Framework (PPF) or Message Control (MC)

      5) Triggering from a Workflow.

      6) Triggering from CCMS with autoreaction.

      7) Triggering from BPM.



      8) Triggering alert by configuring a rule from RWB.

      Hope this will help you.
