Creating New Process Types

Hello,

Great to hear from anyone who has created a non-ABAP process type and included in the process chain.

The interface methods and how they get called and/or check status etc. are not documented or at least I cannot find them.

Thanks

Mathew

    Hi Matthew,

    Within in the process chain, we are running several NT commands. Some examples are we run DTS packages, or copy flat files to archive shares once the data load has finished.

    You need to create a ABAP program that executes this command:

    CALL 'SYSTEM' ID 'COMMAND' FIELD CMD(250)

    ID 'TAB' FIELD RESULT_TAB-SYS.

    Where CMD equal to your NT command.

    You then schedule this program as part of your process chain, with a varient that run your command.

    Cheers!

    • Hi Mathew,

      SAP has implemented process types so they can be easily extended with new types. However, all of this is SAP internal. To my best knowledge there are no plans to open this to customers or partners.

      If you need to extend process chains, there's always the ABAP option as you said already. This should be sufficient. Otherwise, please create a development request.

    Hi

    Pardon my ignorance, but if implementing new process types is SAP internal why then have a chapter concerning it on help.sap.com.
