If this job needs to be done by SAP AGS support processor, sometimes we have to get the trace permission and more connections than R/3 support connection, e.g. BW GUI/RFC connection and/or HTTP connections. Additionally, the given userid to analyze the issue needs to assign suitable authorization and role to replicate the same issue as the end user, which takes more time and effort to confirm between customer and SAP relevant experts. This article will show how to provide a useful RSTT trace for Integrated Planning issue with an example
In the Planning Application Kid it is possible to use planning functions that are written as SQL-Script procedures. These procedures can replace planning functions that are created using ABAP, as ABAP based planning functions cannot run in memory. In an older How to Paper (https://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-53377) we have already described a solution how a test environment in HANA Studio for such procedures can be created using a planning function. In the current paper we want to explain a more recent and easier method to reach the same goal.
