SAP IDoc Monitoring – you do not want to waste valuable time to monitor electronic business transactions?

SAP IDoc Monitoring can be improved with our add-on IDocMonitor for your ERP system for monitoring, processing and administration of intermediate documents (IDocs). Because these IDocs are the central format for data exchange with internal and external systems in an SAP system environment. On the one hand, data from the application documents and master data is written to IDocs during outbound processing. Afterwards they will be sent to the target system. On the other hand, during inbound processing, IDocs are transferred from a source system to the input interface. Then they are stored in the SAP system. In a further step, the document data is generated and posted in the respective application. However, errors occur in the processing of IDocs in an ERP system. In practice, many companies spend valuable time identifying and correcting these errors. As a result, delays and disruptions to business processes occur.

SAP IDoc monitoring HotM add-on

With the SAP IDoc Monitor, you always know whether the data transfers of your business transactions run without errors. Due to easily definable content and technical rules, these states are recognized immediately. If a previously defined situation occurs, the responsible employees will be informed automatically by e-mail. You can then correct the reported errors directly from the e-mail. You define the rules for a monitor to recognize certain situations and the distribution of messages according to your requirements.

With the help of this timely error detection, you reduce the delay in your business processes with the IDocMonitor.

What are the advantages of using the IDocMonitor?

The timely detection, control and correction of the IDoc processing is an expensive, time-consuming activity in the standard. Thus, the IDoc control and monitoring burden the IT departments and the department alike. In many individual steps, error situations must be detected and analyzed.

The challenges lie in practice, for example in the following topics:

  • Timely detection of technical and content error situations
  • Monitor SAP IDoc output
  • Monitor SAP IDoc Inbox
  • Transactions such as WE02, WE05 and BD87 (SAP IDoc Transaction Codes) are technically oriented and not content-related
  • In the mentioned transactions, field names are used instead of business terms
  • In case of error – complicated navigation to SAP transaction IDoc processing
  • Process IDoc transaction and transaction SAP BD87 Process IDoc
  • Show many clicks for SAP transaction IDoc
  • High coordination effort for content errors between IT, department and business partners

In order to meet these challenges when monitoring IDocs, we at mes have developed the IDocMonitor, an sap idoc monitoring report, as an add-on for ERP. Irrespective of whether they are IDocs for the exchange of business documents via EDI or IDocs for linking various business applications and systems. The bottom line is that you control your interfaces effortlessly with the IDocMonitor. Thus, the times for detection, analysis and processing of errors are significantly reduced. This saves your resources and speeds up your processes.

How does the IDocMonitor work?

As a result, faults are detected immediately and without any human resources and the correct measures are automatically initiated. You can easily differentiate between technical and content problems when processing the IDocs. Due to the special user interface, the required filter criteria for a monitor can be easily defined.
