Function documentationMonitor for Trade Repository Objects

 

The TARO monitor (transaction FTR_TARO_MONITOR) provides you with an overview of your trade repository objects, together with the following processing options for them:

  • You can call up the log for a trade repository object.

  • Using the Preview, you can display the trade repository message generated from the content data and also the derived content data of a TARO.

  • You can also display all of the files for this TARO.

  • You can also send TAROs with status 01 Created or 04 Send Failed.

  • You can also display all TAROs for a financial transaction.

  • You can reverse a financial transaction at the trade repository.

  • You can also manually change the field values of the content data of a trade repository object (with status 01 Created, status 02 Incompletely Created or 04 Send Failed).

    You can protect fields that have been changed manuallly to prevent their values from being overwritten by the original value. In the case of protected fields, the system notes both the original value of the field before the manual change and the changed value. If an update of the TARO content causes the original value of a protected field to be determined, the field continues to retain the manually changed value. In cases when the update of the TARO content produces a different value to the original value, the system enters the new value in the field.

    To display protected fields, choose Start of the navigation path Transaction Next navigation step Protected Fields End of the navigation path.

  • You can also trigger an update of the TARO field values using the Complete function. This can be useful if you have corrected or added data, and these changes are not yet visible in the TARO.

  • You can manually change the status of a trade repository object.

  • You can enter a comment for a TARO.

  • You can upload one or more files as attachments to a TARO. When the trade repository message is sent, the attachments are also stored in DMS.

Furthermore, you can enter external transactions here that you do not manage in the Transaction Manager. For the external transactions, the system also creates TAROs so that you can also use Trade Repository Reporting to report these transactions to the relevant trade repository.

Selection
  1. You can restrict the selection of trade repository objects using the following fields:

    • Trade Repository

      If you need to send messages to different trade repositories, you can here single out the trade repository for which you want to see or process the TAROs.

    • Status

      You can also restrict the selection using the status of the trade repository objects, for instance you have the option of restricting the selection to all TAROs that have been incompletely created.

    • Action Type

    • First created on

    In addition, you can restrict the selection of TAROs using the following fields of the financial transactions to be reported:

    • Company Code

    • Transaction

    • Product Type

    • Transaction Type

    Note Note

    • You can see how many TAROs correspond to your current selection using the Number of Entries function.

    End of the note.
  2. In the Sending Parameter area, you can specify in the Messages per File field the maximum number of messages in a combined file.

  3. Execute the function.

Output

The system displays the list of trade repository objects you selected using the SAP List Viewer for SAP GUI (Classic). The general SAP List Viewer functions are available to you in addition to the special functions for processing TAROs.

  1. To edit a trade repository object, select it and then choose the function you require.

    • Log

      You can obtain from the log the time when and the person who created or changed the TARO, and which transaction they used. The system also displays the related error log at all times.

    • Preview

      You can see in the preview the trade repository message from which the current content data and the derived content data of the TARO would have been generated.

    • Files

      Select a TARO. Choose File.

      You can see all of the files saved for this TARO in document management. These are the files of the trade repository messages sent, the files uploaded as attachments to this TARO, and the files of the incoming messages from the trade repository.

      • If you select one of the files and choose Display File (Display File), you can also view the file.

      • You can assign one or more files as attachments to a TARO. Choose Upload File (Upload File). Select the file. The file is uploaded.

        You can display the file by choosing Display File (Display File) or delete the assignment of the file to the TARO by choosing Delete Attachment (Delete Attachment).

    • Send

      You can also send TAROs with status 01 Created or 04 Send Failed.

      You have the option of sending each trade repository message in an individual file to the trade repository or sending multiple trade repository messages in one combined file.

      Select the trade repository objects to be sent and then choose Start of the navigation path Send Next navigation step Send One Message per File / Send Combined Files End of the navigation path.

    • Content

      If you call this function, you can see all of the trade repository object fields with their current values. You can change the field values for the TARO, provided the TARO has one of the following statuses:

      • 01 Created

      • 02 Incompletely Created

      • 04 Send Failed

      You can manually change only the field values of the content data. Although the field values of derived content data are also displayed here, they are not saved persistently and consequently cannot be changed. If you want to change the field value of derived content, you need to manually change the value at the location from which it is determined (such as in the business partner master data).

      Note Note

      If you always want to fill a derived content field differently, you can create your own BAdI implementation, or use the derivation tool for determining the derived content fields.

      End of the note.

      Choose Display/Change (Display/Change) to make a change. Make any changes, and then Save (Save) them. The system asks whether you want to protect the change to the field value from being overwritten by the original value. If you opt to protect the field value, the system notes both the original value of the field before the manual change and the changed value. If an update of the TARO content causes the original value of a protected field to be determined, the field continues to retain the manually changed value. In cases when the update of the TARO content produces a different value to the original value, the system enters the new value in the field.

    • Transaction

      You use this function to do the following:

      • Navigate to the financial transaction data of the selected TARO

      • Display all TAROs for the financial transaction of the selected TAROs

      • Reverse the financial transaction at the trade repository

        When you execute this function, the system creates a TARO with the action type 40 Error. In this way, the financial transaction is reversed at the trade repository. All TAROs for this financial transaction that have not yet been sent acquire the status Obsolete.

      • Display mismatched fields for TAROs with the status Reconciliation Failed for which you have imported the report on mismatched fields using the function Import Reports at Period End

      • Display the protected fields for a financial transaction

    • Change Status To

      Using this function, you can change the status of the TARO to one of the possible subsequent statuses.

      See also: Status Management for Trade Repository Objects

    • Complete

      Using this function, you can start the determination of the field values using the BAdIs and derivation tools for the selected TARO with the status 02 Incompletely Created. If the process is run successfully, then the TARO status is set to 01 Created, otherwise it retains the status 02 Incompletely Created.

    • Comment

      Select one or more TAROs. Choose Comment. Enter the text of your comment (maximum of 50 characters). Choose Enter. Your comment is assigned to the selected TAROs and displayed in the Comment column.

    • Last TAROs

      When you call up the monitor, it first displays all trade repository objects for the selected financial transactions. By choosing the Latest TAROs pushbutton, you can restrict the list to the most current/latest TAROs for a financial transaction. By choosing the same pushbutton again (it is now the All TAROs pushbutton), all TAROs are displayed.

    • Update (Update)

      The list of trade repository objects is updated using this function.
