Integration & Exception Monitoring in SAP Cloud ALM¶
SAP Mobile Services supports Integration & Exception Monitoring in SAP Cloud ALM. Integration & Exception Monitoring provides administrators with a holistic view of the integration between mobile clients, mobile services and other services. The initial request, usually from the client, only needs the SAP-Passport correlation header to track the integration.
Enabling Integration & Exception Monitoring¶
Before you begin, complete the instructions in enabling SAP Cloud ALM to retrieve the following SAP Cloud ALM API configuration values:
- SAP Cloud ALM Base URL
- OAuth endpoint URL
- OAuth client ID
- OAuth client secret
Provide these values in the SAP Cloud ALM settings page.
- Save: Create or update the configuration to SAP Cloud ALM.
- Delete: Delete the registration for SAP Cloud ALM. SAP Mobile Services stops sending monitoring information to SAP Cloud ALM. SAP Mobile Services does not delete information in SAP Cloud ALM. SAP Mobile Services can be re-registered using the same configuration.
- Reset: Unsaved changes are reverted.
The ALM Registration Status indicates the mobile services registration with the SAP Cloud ALM.
- Pending: The registration request is pending and will be completed within 5 minutes after the full configuration has been provided.
- Registered: The registration was successful and mobile services will periodically upload events to SAP Cloud ALM .
- Invalid: The provided SAP Cloud ALM API configuration is invalid and mobile services is not registered.
