Monitor for Processed XML MessagesLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can use the monitor for processed XML messages to display information about persisted XML messages. You can perform a search to find messages that match the provided search criteria. You can display individual messages from the list and compare existing versions with each other.


To display information about messages, the messages must first have been logged. A message is logged when it is processed if:

  • It is an asynchronous message (persisted implicitly)

  • Logging for the underlying pipeline is activated (general logging of all pipeline steps or logging of particular pipeline steps)

The original message and any versions then exist for each message.

Versions of an original message only exist if message processing was executed with activated logging, or the message was implicitly persisted following a particular pipeline step.

  • If logging is activated at pipeline level, a new version of the message is saved each time a pipeline service is called.

  • If logging is activated at pipeline service level, a new version of the message is saved following processing by the pipeline service concerned.

In this way, changes to messages by pipeline services can be monitored. You can monitor all services or only the critical services, depending on the logging configuration.

  1. Choose a view.

    The monitor for processed XML messages offers you two different views of processed messages:

    • Choose Standard to view all messages that meet the chosen selection criteria.

    • Choose Process to view only messages that were processed using the Business Process Engine. The displayed messages are grouped according to the process instances involved.

    You can also specify the maximum number of results displayed by the system after the search.

  2. Choose how to search by status.

    • To search for all processed messages, leave the Status Group and Status fields empty.

    • Search for messages that belong to a particular status group

    • Search for messages that have a particular status

      You can use the message status to further restrict the number of messages belonging to a particular status group. For example, this enables you to access all messages with errors that can be restarted.

  3. You can choose which search criteria you want to use. For more information, see Searching for Messages .


The system displays a list of persisted messages that match the provided search criteria. For more information, see Selecting Processed Messages and Displaying Message Versions .


If you do not have administrator authorization (S_XMB_ADM), the system only displays messages of the current client.
