By recording HTTP requests, the ICF Recorder provides you with the means to identify and fix the cause of the error whenever service calls fail.

With the ICF Recorder, you can store the recorded requests (without the corresponding passwords) in the database. This makes it easier to investigate problems, by eliminating the need to describe the problem precisely in order to reproduce an error. The problem can be reproduced again and again using the database entry, thus making it possible to find the exact cause by means of debugging or work process traces. Once you have fixed the problem, you can then use the error entries to check the corrections.


You can call the ICF Recorder directly using transaction SICF.


You can use the ICF Recorder to perform the following functions:

  • Activate Recording

  • Deactivate recording

  • Display recorded HTTP requests

  • Process recorded HTTP requests
