Triggering alert (Email) using java mapping
By Sabyasachi Masanta
Management (ALM) tool is a very effective way of expediting monitoring in XI.
Within ALM, conditions for critical situations are predefined. When an alert
is triggered in ALM that meets these conditions, responsible or interested
parties are determined and informed. This decreases the pain of manual
monitoring. The users can receive alerts as e-mail, SMS, and fax, if these
external methods of communication are configured in SAP connect.
document enables the developer to create an alert and trigger the alert using
java mapping. Here the alert is sent as an email. Here we have triggered the
alert from a RFC enabled function module. This function module is called from
the java mapping.
2.0 Business Requirements
had a requirement to retrieve product name from the product id. Product name is
stored in a database (MYSQL) for the key field product id. If the product id is
absent in the database then an alert will be triggered as an email. As the alert
triggering function module is not a RFC enabled function module so we need to
create a RFC enabled wrapper function module which will call the alert
triggering function module (SALRT_CREATE_API). Both the product name lookup and
triggering alert is handled by the java mapping.
STEP 1 Create
an alert category from transaction ALRTCATDEF. Define the container variables.
Then write the message title and long text. Finally define the fixed alert
recipients. Then go to transaction SCOT and configure the mail server (SMTP).
create an alert category (Z_SABU_TEST_01) with transaction ALRTCATDEF.
all the container variables needed in the alert email.
the long texts with the help of container variables created in the earlier step.
the fixed recipients for the alert category and save the alert category.
to transaction SCOT and configure the SMTP to send email for the alert.
click on the SMTP and populate the mail host (IP or host name of the mail
server) and mail port (by default it is 25).
on the Set push button and enter email address.
