  Create task to update session list


This task checks whether new data needs to be collected in the target system for a session. New data is needed if a new session has been created or an existing session has been changed. If the task finds a session for which new data needs to be collected, it creates a task in the local system to get session data.

New information about sessions can come from the SAP Support Portal or your SAP Solution Manager system.
