Automic Workload Automation

Useful SAP Notes to fix issues with BAPI_XBP (2.0/3.0) and using R3_MODIFY_VARIANT or R3_SET_SELECT_OPTION to update fields in an ABAP Report Variant in SAP 

05-29-2018 06:23 AM

During the last years there was time by time issues modifying values in SAP ABAP Report Variants using the CA Automic Workload Automation and it's Agent for SAP and SAP BAPI_XBP our solution is certified for. 

Not all of the SAP Notes I've attached, can be found that easy on support.sap.com. 

 

What is happen?

  • The ABAP Report terminates with a warning update all mandatory fields or
  • you see/get the information that the report was running with a wrong or old value.

How to identify, that this is not an issue because of a missing field or wrong update in a SAP Job in the Automation Engine?

  • In both cases you see in the Automation Engine opening the Job Report (Agent-Log) of this job, that the R3_MODIFY_VARIANT or R3_SET_SELECT_OPTION the field was submitted with the right value. If you look into the Variant in SAP you see the old value(s) or an empty field.
  • In case of SAP Note 1550394 it's a bit harder to identify. Case 1: the Variant if it was existing before do have the right values but the report was executed with the old one. Case 2: The variant was created new and the Job creation in SAP terminates with the error message that this variant do not exist. This is happen only if this SAP System do have more than one active CI/PAS/DI Instance(*) running. 
    (*) CI = Central Instance / PAS = Primary Application Server /  DI = Dialog Instance.  

 

How to solve: please contact the SAP_BASIS Administrator and share the SAP Notes attached with him. All this SAP Notes are related to the module SAP_BASIS [Version] and SP[Version]. You can find this information at the end of the SAP Note document for which SAP_BASIS Versions and until which SP Version it is valid. I recommend to download the SAP Note document again, as this documents can be updated with other version ore related SAP Notes any time by SAP AG. SAP Notes can be implemented using the SAP Note Manager.
