SAP EarlyWatch Alert now identifies missing Side Effect Solving Sap Notes

Have you implemented a lot of SAP Notes for fixing issues in your system? Do you already think there could be any side effects or unsure if your business process is impacted? Then, this blog is for you.

 

Sometimes we see that SAP Notes cause unwanted side effects, and these can lead to a lot of problems.The SAP EarlyWatch Alert Tool can now help you to identify situations where your system is affected by such an already known side effect.

Why this Check?

Our goal for this development is to pro-actively alert customers via the SAP EarlyWatch Alert, when they implemented an SAP Note causing a known side effect in the past.

What is Offered?

We have established an automated process between SAP Notes and the SAP EarlyWatch Alert. Therefore, it always has the latest information on SAP Notes which solve side effects. Equipped with this information it can check if you implemented SAP Note on your system that causes a known side effect and raise an alert if you didn’t implement the solving SAP Note.

When alerted you get the list of the causing SAP Notes that are implemented in your system along with the corresponding missing solving SAP Notes.

The functionality is currently offered for the following areas:

  1. SAP Extended Warehouse Management
  2. SAP Transportation Management
  3. SAP Production Planning
  4. SAP Plant Maintenance

We plan to extend this to other application areas as well in the future for e.g., Finance

Customer Benefits

With this check, customers can detect already at a very early stage the issues existing in their system and ensure stability.

The list of missing SAP Notes helps to prioritize the implementation of SAP Notes for business-critical areas that are impacted.

To get an overview of the application specific SAP Notes recommended with the SAP EarlyWatch Alert service you can refer to the Blogs Introduction of application specific Extended Warehouse Management Checks in SAP EarlyWatch Alert and Introduction of application specific Extended Warehouse Management Checks in SAP EarlyWatch Alert.

To know more details about SAP EarlyWatch Alert refer to Official SAP EarlyWatch Alert Support Offering ,1257308 – FAQ: Using EarlyWatch Alert. Refer to the blog   SAP EWA Workspace to gain an overview on your system landscape health.

To view the alerts that have been raised for missing side effect SAP Notes in your system, you can access the SAP EarlyWatch Alert Solution Finder and enter the text ‘Side Effect Notes’ in the Enter Search Term field.

      Hi Rozyta,

      If nothing is showing under "SAP EarlyWatch Alert Solution Finder and enter the text ‘Side Effect Notes’ in the Enter Search Term field", means that theirs's nothing identified or do we need to take action to get this functionality?

      King Regards,

      Bruno Sousa

      Hello Bruno,

      If you are looking for missing side effect solving SAP Notes for SAP Extended Warehouse Management or SAP Transportation Management, then you need you ensure the online collectors are allowed in your system (this is a pre-requisite). This needs to be done via the report RTCCTOOL.

      Once online collectors are allowed and you still find no results, it means you have no missing SAP Notes.

      For SAP Production Planning or Plant Maintenance, the online collectors are not needed. If no results found, then there was nothing identified.

      You can also find the alert by setting filter for Alert Category->Application (Extended Warehouse Management, Transportation Management, Production Planning and Plant Maintenance)

      Best Regards,

      Rozyta
