In Netweaver BI 2004s we can find many new features in process chains. Below I have listed some of them

Copying of process chains:In BI 2004s there is a copy option in the process chain menu.


Go to RSPC —–> Process chain —-> Copy. Enter the technical name and description, save it and click on refresh button. You can see the new process chain in the list.

Client dependent: We have a option of assigning a particular process chain to a particular client.


Go to RSPC —-> Process chain —-> Attributes. Enter client id and save it. Once you assign, the process chain can only monitored in this client. Note: Process variants which are used in one client will not be used in other client.

Display mode: Display, here in BI 2004s we don’t have locking issues. One user may change the process chain while the other is just displaying it. Process chain can be scheduled in display mode.


Authorization for process chain: There is a new authorization object on process chian itself S_RS_PC which checks on the sub objects:
.DEFINITION, the activities display(03) and change(23),
.PROTOCOLS, the activity deletion(06),
.RUNTIME, the activity execution(16).

Some new Process Types:

Decision between Multiple Alternatives:

This process Supports if (condition1) then (event1) elseif; decisions up to 99 resulting events and an error event can be defined.

Once you put all conditions in the process type, then when you connect a link between decision process type to the next process, it will asks on what condition you need to proceed to next process type.
You can find the process type in “General Services”.


Data Transfer Process:

This proess is used for automatically load data into an Infoprovider. It is just like an info package.
You can find the process type in “Load process and post-processing”.


Close Request of Real-Time Infopackage:

With this process type, you can close an open PSA request for a Web service DataSource or a DataSource for real-time data acquisition in an SAP source system before the entry value is reached.
You can find the process type in “Load process and post-processing”.


Archive Data from Info Provider:

This process type is used to automate the Archiving data from info provider.
You can find the process type in “Data Target Administration”.


Deletion of Request from the Change log:

This process is used for deleting data from the change log of a DataStore object is which are no longer needed for the delta update.
You can find the process type in “Other BW Processes”.


Switch Real time Infocube to Plan mode & Switch Real time Infocube to Load mode:

This both process types are used to automate the process of converting real time Infocube to plan mode or load mode.
You can find the process types in “Other BW Processes”.

    Its a nice idea to blog on the new capabilities of process chains in 04s. I would encourage you to continue the series of blogs which can throw more light on the practical aspects of those capabilities.

    What I noticed in NW2004s is that it does not support automatic conversion of InfoPackage Groups into Process Chains anymore. On one side – NW04s does not further support InfoPackage Groups, although you still can get there with RSA1OLD. On the other hand you cannot automatically convert InfoPackage Group into the Process Chain as you could in 3.x. Not good ๐Ÿ™

    It is very good from the overview point of view but it should have been little more comprehensive in terms of the explanation about the new added processes and their functionality.

    But overall very good to know what all is possible with new features in process chain

    Thanks n Regards,
