Delete requests from Advanced DSO (ADSO)

While working with SAP BWonHANA we came to the point to delete requests from an Advanced DSO using a program. Unfortunately there is no funtion module like RSSM_PROCESS_REQUDEL_ODSO for classic DSO.

So I spend some nice time with the ABAP Debugger and found a solution:

PARAMETERS: p_adsonm TYPE rsoadsonm.

DATA: ls_tlogo       TYPE rstran_s_tlogo,
      lt_tlogo_tabl  TYPE rsdso_t_data_tlogo_tabl,
      lr_task_param  TYPE REF TO cl_rsdso_data_task_param,
      lr_task_caller TYPE REF TO cl_rsdso_data_task_caller.

"fill TLOGO structure
ls_tlogo-tlogo = 'ADSO'.
ls_tlogo-objnm = p_adsonm.

"create instance of cl_rsdso_data_request_list
DATA(lr_request_list) = cl_rsdso_data_request_list=>create(
  i_s_tlogo   = ls_tlogo ).

"refresh list
lr_request_list->refresh( ).

"get list of all requests in XREF format
DATA(lt_request_xref) = lr_request_list->get_t_request_xref( ).

"do some stuff to determine relevant requests


"create another instance of cl_rsdso_data_request_list with XREF list
"why this?
"I cannot create lr_request_list with i_task_type = 'DELETE' and
"execute the method "refresh". But without i_task_type = 'DELETE'
"the method "start" of lr_task return with a dump...
"So, lets do this twice..
lr_request_list = cl_rsdso_data_request_list=>create(
  i_s_tlogo   = ls_tlogo
  i_task_type = 'DELETE'
  i_t_request_xref = lt_request_xref ).

"create task for deletion
DATA(lr_task) = cl_rsdso_data_task=>create(
  i_s_tlogo = ls_tlogo
  i_type = 'DELETE'
  i_t_tlogo_tabl = lt_tlogo_tabl
  i_r_request_list = lr_request_list
  i_r_param = lr_task_param
  i_r_caller = lr_task_caller ).

"start deletion
lr_task->start( ).

"get status
DATA(lv_status) = lr_task->get_status( ).
"get log
DATA(l_r_log)  = lr_task->get_r_log( ).

"write messages
LOOP AT l_r_log->get_t_msg( ) ASSIGNING FIELD-SYMBOL(<f_s_msg>).
  "WHERE msgty = 'X' OR msgty = 'A' OR msgty = 'E' OR msgty = 'W'.
  DATA ls_msg TYPE rspc_s_msg.

  MOVE-CORRESPONDING <f_s_msg> TO ls_msg.
  MESSAGE ID ls_msg-msgid TYPE ls_msg-msgty NUMBER ls_msg-msgno
  WITH ls_msg-msgv1 ls_msg-msgv2 ls_msg-msgv3 ls_msg-msgv4.


Maybe there is another way to get rid of the second instance of cl_rsdso_data_request_list. If you find a way, please tell me 🙂


Please let me know if I’ve missed anything or something is incorrect.

Hope it helps!

Thanks 🙂

    Hi Phillip,

    I was exactly looking for such this solution. Thank you for giving a solution.

    But I have a issue.. when I tried to use your code as is.. I face few errors in data definition itself. I am in Version BW 7.4 SP15. Which version is your code in?

  • Hi All,


    We are using BW 7.5 SP07 and i am able to simply right click the provider and delete data, which removes the request. Must have been functionality added post SP05 perhaps?





    • Hi Loed,

      take a look at the comment “do some stuff to determine relevant requests”. Otherwise the program will delete all requests, right.



      • Hi Philipp,

        Can you provide a sample code to delete specific request?

        Also, I’m planning to make the request to be entered as PARAMETER so I can use it in PRODUCTION to delete specific request.

        Thanks a lot.


  • Hi Philipp,


    I have used your programme in my system where we are using BI 7.5 and SP09 where I use to delete the Old requests from the ADSO , where as Iam getting the below error.


    Create request declaration contains invalid source requests” . Could you please suggest how to solve this issue.

    • Hi Subhani,

      I could reproduce your error but I dont know why this error appears. In my case I got an entry with an empty Loading-TSN (just “00000000000000000000000) and a filled Activation-TSN (“2018…”). I dont know where this entry comes from.

      Could you check if you could find the corrupt request in ADSO Administration? As an workaround maybe you could delete all requests from internal table lt_request_xref where Loading-TSN (SRC_TSN) is empty. I dont think that this constellation should be normal.

      Best regards


  • Hi Philipp Peters ,

    Thanks for the post and I tried this.I modified the code to delete the ADSO requests older than 6 months. But I am also getting the same error as ” Create request declaration contains invalid source requests ” and there are no corrupted requests from ADSO.

    Is there any solution for this?
