    Hi Vimal,

     

    You can also view the status of the executed process chain by executing the program RSPC_MONITOR in SE38

    Hi Vimal,

     

    Follow the steps suggested by Shilpa, monitor the PC in Log view and make sure it completes successfully.The above suggested steps helps in running the PC manually. But you may even schedule the PC to trigger automatically at regular intervals (hourly, daily, weekly or even monthly) by changing the Scheduling options to time/after event in 'Change Selections'.

     

    Let me know if its not clear.
    Regards
    Sai

      Hi Vimal,

       

      Go to SE37 and give the program : RSPC_API_CHAIN_START and click on execute.


      Now give the process chain name and execute, It will ask for Priority you can use Standard priority

       

      You can also check the Scheduling options by clicking on Start variant.

       

      You can change the scheduling option also.

       

      The above method will work in both the case...if it direct scheduling or through meta chain.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Rajesh

    Hi Vimal,

     

    Since you know the Process Chain name goto tcode rspc1 and give the Process Chain name in "Process Chain (ID)" filed, leave the log ID filed blank, uncheck 'display only' button and execute.

    --> then the process chain is displayed in planning view.

    -->since you said that the start condition of the PC is immediate, press the "Schedule(F8)" button present on tool bar or just press F8.

         This will run your process chain and you can verify from log view. If the Process Chain didnt start, then please verify the start condition of the Process Chain.

     

    Regards,

    Harish.
