Subscribe to Decisive Red Alerts via Notification Framework and EWA Workspace

In order to improve usability of the Workspace the development team enabled the Notification framework in the SAP ONE Support Launchpad to send out notification for critical alerts while they are processed instead of looking it up each week in the SAP EarlyWatch Alert Workspace.

In order to enable notifications, you need to create a filter view, a customized filter query in EWA Workspace. In order to receive the EWA Notifications the user must have at least one view saved.

Go to EWA Workspace (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/ewaworkspace)

Set any filter values (e.g. customer number, database type)


Click on arrow right side of icon Standard *

Click on Save As button.

In the Save View popup enter a name for the view


Click "OK"

With that we can enable Notification for the saved view.

In the upper right corner, you can find the notification bull horn. Click it and then click "Manage"


A new screen appears. You need to select "SAP EarlyWatch Alert Workspace" to configure notification for Views and Cards.

You can now enable notifications for new decisive red alert in the SAP EarlyWatch Alert reports related to the filter Settings save in the view.


You are done. You will be informed automatically by the channel you have chosen whenever a new critical alert is processed (relevant for the selected filter view).
