POWL auto-refresh

Hi Gurus,

We are building SRM 7 SP07 with ECS.

Are you aware of any customizing in SRM regarding POWL auto-refresh? Or is that sheer EP stuff?

Many thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    The functionality is planned for release with SRM 7.0 SP6,

    Can you please ensure that the criteria of the auto refresh have ALL

    been met as defined here:


    More sepcifically the selection in customizing:

    Define Number and Intervals of Iterations for Automatic Refresh of POWL

    The 'update' or auto refresh is generated once the criteria

    have been established and executed manually once, i.e. If you create

    a query and define criteria, you should refresh this query then manually

    Now once any additional documents are created which conform to the

    criteria they will be automatically added to the POWL.

    This is how the system is designed to work, basically, one manual

    refresh is required, then auto refresh kicks in. This of course is

    invalidated by running of the POWL_WLOAD or similar reports which will

    in many cases clear the search criteria and require new configuration

    and refreshing manually.

    Please also ensure that the following note has been implemented

    1465828 Additional URL parameter to refresh POWL after logon

    Afterwards you will have 2 parameters REFRESHA and REFRESHQ.

    After Implementing the corrections, you can set the following parameters

    in your PFCG configuration: REFRESHA=X to refresh all to queries after


    REFRESHQ=X to refresh only the current default query which is opened

    after logon.

    Hope this helps,

    Kind Regards,

      Addition to Matthew,

      To refresh the POWL on initial load of the POWL application - try implementing option 1 from OSS Note 1461713 - POWL refresh: different options.
