Procedure documentation Setting Up Error Notifications for Administrators  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You can specify that an administrator is to receive a message when an integration process has an error status. The administrator receives the message in the workflow inbox of SAP Business Workplace. You can specify that the system is to forward the message to an e-mail address for the user.

The administrator receives notifications for all integration processes and for any workflows for which no other administrator is specified. You cannot specify administrators for individual integration processes.


       1.      In automatic Customizing (transaction SWF_XI_CUSTOMIZING), specify a user as the administrator for workflow.

This user must be familiar with the integration processes so that he or she can take action, if required.

Setting Up Forwarding to an E-mail Address

       2.      In the user maintenance (transaction SU01), check whether an e-mail address is defined for the specified user.
