You can activate recording of HTTP requests with the ICF recorder both user-specifically and service-specifically in order to identify and fix errors.


To activate recording with the ICF Recorder, perform the following steps:

  1. Call transaction SICF.

  2. On the selection screen, select the tree structure or substructure that you want to display, and choose Execute.

  3. Select the required service in the service hierarchy.

  4. Choose Start of the navigation path Edit Next navigation step Recorder Next navigation step Activate Recording End of the navigation path.

  5. Enter the following data:

    • URL path: Enter the service path that you want the ICF Recorder to record (if you selected the path before, the system proposes the path for you).

    • Specify a Record Time and Lifetime (lifetime of the monitoring data in the database).

    • You can set the option User-Dependent to activate the ICF recorder for a specific user or client (that is, all users in a client). If you select All Users, all activates of all users of the selected service are recorded.


      If possible, choose the option User-dependent. Otherwise, superfluous data can strain system performance.


      Note also that you need an authorization to view other users'data (see Displaying and Processing Entries).

    • Under RecordingLevel, you can select Request or Request + Response. You can also record Failed Logons.


      After you have activated the ICF Recorder and recorded the required monitoring data, you must deactivate the ICF Recorder again to avoid straining system performance. To deactivate the ICF Recorder, call transaction SICF and choose Start of the navigation path Edit Next navigation step Recorder Next navigation step Deactivate Recording End of the navigation path.


The HTTP requests are recorded in accordance with your selection.
