Graphical Mapping - Capture a specific mapping error and send an Alert for only that error


We would like to capture only specific mapping errors (like a required field that wasn't set) which will error in the mapping with "Target XSD requires a value for this element"... Then create an alert to the business via email so email the business only for a specific error.

Our thought was use SALERT_CREATE RFC to send an alert for a specific mapping error however for graphical mapping we are sure of all the options to catch this specific error. Looking for ideas.

We could use a UDF at each field and verify if a value was passed and if not send it through the UDF to create an alert. However when there are a lot of fields this isn't practical from a mapping standpoint but would work.

If we were using Java mapping it would be easy to catch the exception but from the graphical mapping side what would be our options. We are familiar with a few but would like to see what others think on this one.
