Custom Cloud Integration Content message monitor in SAP PO 7.5

Hi experts,

I’m a humble integration consultant, who has worked with SAP PI a few years and I’m starting my way in CPI.

I’m writing this post because SAP doesn’t provide a message monitor for CPI content based on SAPUI5 even in 2018 in SAP PO 7.5 system, I’m talking about the following monitor:


I’m  want to share with us one undocumented OData service called “MPLOData” provided by SAP in SAP PO 7.5 that you can use to build a custom Cloud Integration Content message monitor.


The OData service is provided in the following path:



The metadata file looks very interesting:

A JSON sample response looks like this:

After a few lines of SAPUI5, you can get a custom Cloud Integration Content message monitor in SAPUI5:


Home screen:

Time period filter:

Status Group filter:

Status filter:

IFlow filter:

Maximun number of Results filter:

GUID filter:

I run a search by time period:

I built 4 basic reports:

you can choose the type of output, chart or table:

Example of the status chart:

Example of the status report table:

I click on a message, and I can see the detail, i.e. the log of a successfully processed message:

The log of a message processed in Failed status:

The IFlows report type looks like this:

The IFlows report type table:

The Days report type looks like this:

the table of the report type Days:

The processing time by IFlow chart looks like this:

The processing time by IFlow report :


I will explain how to add your custom Cloud Integration Content message monitor to the Cloud Integration Content Managment Cockpit in a few steps:

You need access to file system of the SAP PO 7.5 server.

1-Paste the view & controller in the following location:

2-Add the libraries as follow:

3-Add the view & controller scripts:

4-Add an ID and the view name:

5-Add a new IconTabFilter for the previous ID

6-Delete all the content of the following location:

7-Restart the application in NWA:

8-Clear the browser cache or open an incognito windows

9-Go to Cloud Integration Content Management Cockpit

10-A quick test

11-Check the results


I hope to see something similar or better in the next versions of SAP PO 😉


Enjoy it!
