Preparations for SAP Ariba

Register for the open API Developer Portal

Once you have registered in the Open API Developer portal you shall register for the service 'Transaction Monitoring API', which will provide access to the error and warning events, related to the SAP Ariba document processing.

While working through the above-mentioned process, keep in mind to note down the information, like Application Key, OAuth Client ID and Client Secret, which is needed to configure the SAP Ariba cloud service access on Focused Run side.

Preparations for SAP ABAP Backend System

The exceptions for 'Ariba Network Integration' are collected from the Ariba integration add-ons installed in the ABAP backend system. So this monitoring category is only available for ABAP systems, which have the Ariba integration add-ons installed.

  • For more information on the add-on installation please refer to SAP Note 1915255 - Ariba Integration for SAP Business Suite Installation: RIN

To set up this monitoring category you have to add the ABAP backend system to Advanced Integration Monitoring.

Additional Information

The Ariba Integration Add-On as well as the Cloud Integration Gateway Integration Add-on (CIG) write messages in the ABAP Application Log. Some of these Application Log messages are covered by the 'Ariba Network Integration Add-on' category. However the object and sub-objects that are proposed in that category might not reflect your situation. If you want to monitor Application Log messages that are not covered (yet) you can use the ABAP Application Log category, available for any on-premises ABAP system, and specify the relevant Application Log objects and sub-objects, as proposed here:
