HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Monitoring SAP events

Whenever you define an event rule based on an SAP event in your HCL Workload Automation plan, that event is monitored by HCL Workload Automation. Monitoring SAP events is allowed only if you use XPB version 3.0, or later.

HCL Workload Automation monitors two types of SAP event:
Events defined by the SAP system
The events that are triggered automatically by system changes, for example when a new operation mode is activated. This type of event cannot be modified by the user.
Events defined by the user
The events that are triggered by ABAP or external processes, for example when a process triggers an SAP event to signal that external data has arrived and must be read by the SAP system. For details about how to trigger events by external processes, refer to Raising an SAP event.
If you modify the r3batch option files, to make the changes effective you must stop and restart the extended agent monitoring processes with the following command. For UNIX only, this command must be entered by the owner of the HCL Workload Automation installation:
