Idempotency guarantees delivery of synchronous messages exactly once. You configure idempotent services by scheduling a background job that ensures that request messages in SAP Gateway only occur once.
To define settings for idempotent services, proceed as follows:
In transaction SPRO open the SAP Reference IMG and navigate to: and click on the Activity icon.
Enter the following default values:
For Period Hours in Document the value is 6.
For Period Hours in Document ID the value is 12.
A message displays confirming that the job has been scheduled.
To check that you have successfully defined the idempotent services settings, carry out the following steps:
In transaction SM37 enter SAP_BC_IDP_WS_SWITCH* as the Job name and * as the User name.
A list with all scheduled jobs SAP_BC_IDP_WS_SWITCH_BD and SAP_BC_IDP_WS_SWITCH_BDID is displayed.
