A scenario allows you to group point-to-point interfaces that belong to a more complex interface scenario. All connections that are part of a scenario can then be displayed together in a scenario topology. By adding filters to the connections you can define which messages and exceptions are in scope for a scenario and isolate their status information in the monitoring application.
By naming the filter group of a connection between components appropriately, you can add business-related information to your scenario. Knowing what exactly is sent via this connection will support the readability and understandability of the scenario for monitoring. This will simplify the communication between the business, functional support and technical support teams.
Before you can set up a scenario you first have to activate the monitoring for the components and integration categories in scope. Then you can create a scenario:
In the 'Topology' step you create the topology for your scenario.
After adding the components you can do the following:
The alerts and filters can only be created for monitoring categories that are already set up for the technical component.
To create a real landscape topology you have to create connections between the technical components.
You can add a group of filters to the created link.
The filters can only be created for monitoring categories that are already set up for the selected technical component.
Flows allow you to describe end-to-end message flows that run over several technical components. This is useful integrations consisting out of more than one point-to-point interface.
Currently supported end-to-end flows:
|PI → PI||PI Messages (ABAP), PI Messages (Java)||Split and Merge scenarios are not supported yet|
|IDoc → IDoc||IDoc
|PI → IDoc||PI Messages (ABAP), PI Messages (Java), IDoc||IDoc sent from ABAP to PI are not supported as part of a flow|
|CPI → C4C / C4C → CPI||SAP Cloud Platform Integration, SAP Cloud for Customer||Split and Merge scenarios are not supported yet|
|ABAP WS → CPI / CPI → ABAP WS||SAP Cloud Platform Integration, Web Service Messages (ABAP)
|ABAP WS → C4C / C4C → ABAP WS||SAP Cloud for Customer, Web Service Messages (ABAP)
For these end-to-end flows, you can see a status summary and the average duration and status over time for the whole flow in the E2E Monitor of the Advanced Integration Monitoring application.
It is optional to create end-to-end flows for a scenario.
To be able to maintain flows you have to change the mode for the UI from 'Basic' to 'Expert'. This is done using the drop-down field in the upper right corner of the configuration screen. After switching to 'Expert' mode you will now see the step 'Flows (Optional)'.
To create a flow go to the step 'Flows (Optional)' in the scenario configuration:
For each component enter a filter that identifies the messages of this message flow:
