Detail Screen - Old


You get to the old Monitor detail screen from the overview list or the planning table. This detail screen will not be developed any further. We recommend you use the overview tree instead.

The detail monitor consists of two parts:

  • Headers
  • Detail display


These provide you with general information for this data request. The system also compares runtimes of the current run and previous runs for the same InfoPackage here.

You can receive additional general information for this data request via the Header function.

Detail display

You can get a detail display of the following tab pages: Updated Infos, Updated Data, Scheduler, and All IDocs. They provide information about the current processing status of the data request.

When you request data, this request is first logged in the Scheduler tab page. A request IDoc (RSRQST) is then sent to the ALE inbox of the source system.

You can find this IDoc again in the tab page All IDocs. All IDocs displayed here are provided with a status number that characterizes the processing status of this IDoc from the ALE view. The IDocs of the BW ALE outbox and inbox are listed for the request as default values. You can, however, also list the IDocs of the ALE outbox and inbox for the source system.

If the source system contains the request IDoc, it compiles the requested data and reports on its activities using Info IDocs, which are updated in BW and can then be seen in the Updated Infos tab page. These Info IDocs have different status numbers that characterize the sent information. Among other things, the Info IDocs contain information on data that is summarized into data package's with the help of the extractor in the source system.

The data compiled by the extractor in the source system is condensed into one or more data packages and dispatched to the BW. As long as the update has been started in BW, these data packages can be found in the tab page Updated Data.

The data package information is arranged hierarchically and gets more detailed with every click you make on the black arrow to the right. On the first detail level, you can find the processing steps that are broken down into further individual log times. These log times are characterized by 'callers', and carry either a success message or an error message.

Each tab page offers you different options to execute additional actions with the displayed lines of information: To do this, choose one or more lines and click on one of the pushbuttons on the tab page.

With the Maintain Data pushbutton, you can go to the IDoc maintenance for each IDoc, and display the technical structure of the IDoc. All IDocs on the All IDocs tab page that are flagged with a redtraffic light can be processed manually with the Process IDoc pushbutton. You can also simulate the update of data IDocs with the function Simulated Posting.

You can also use the Messages pushbutton to display the associated messages.

Special feature:Persistent Staging Area

If you have chosen the requested InfoSource as a PSA transfer method in the transfer rules, the data packages are not dispatched using IDocs, and therefore do not appear on the All IDocs tab page.

Error Log

When you load master data, an error log of all the incorrect data records is created. You can call up this log from the Monitor detail screen or the Monitor Wizard. The system checks master data for duplicated data records and overlapping time intervals, and to see whether lower-case letters have been used.

Status Numbers

Various numbers are used for logging and commentating on the data loading process.

  1. Callers
  2. Every monitor log time is assigned to a caller. This consists of a number that indicates which processing status is being logged.

    You can find out what the numbers signify with F4 Help.

  3. Info Status
  4. These statuses are there to characterize the information passed on to BW from the source system. They are logged on the tab page All IDocs.

    You can find out what the numbers signify with F4 Help.

  5. Warehouse IDoc Status

These statuses are valid for all IDocs that have been generated using ALE. They are logged on the tab page All IDocs.

You can find out what the numbers signify in the BW by choosing Tools → ABAP Workbench → Overview → Data browser. Enter the table name TEDS2, then choose Table content and Execute.
