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   Edit   Recorder   Activate Recording  .

  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.

      End of the note.

      Note Note

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

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

      Caution Caution

      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   Edit   Recorder   Deactivate Recording  .

      End of the caution.


The HTTP requests are recorded in accordance with your selection.
