Procedure documentationSetting Up EarlyWatch Alert Locate this document in the navigation structure


Set up SAP EarlyWatch Alert for your systems and solutions. You can set up SAP EarlyWatch Alerts per system or solution.

To enable SAP to identify potential problems, you can enable SAP Solution Manager to also analyze and send business process data to SAP. By default, EWA collects only technical data. Business process data may be sensitive, so, by default, it is not collected and sent to SAP automatically.

The following business process data can be collected:

  • Order To Cash

    • Sales Orders: Orders (GI in the past, but not delivered)

    • Outbound Deliveries: Deliveries with overdue invoices

  • Procure To Pay

    • Purchase Orders: Overdue Purchase Order items

  • Plan To Produce

    • Planned Orders: Open Planned Orders

    • Confirmation Errors: Failed goods movement

  • Finance

    • Invoices: Overdue customer payments


You have put systems in a solution.
