If you didn't perform the infrastructure configuration yet, please follow the Interface and Connection Monitoring Setup.
SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP) is a planning application, that combines supply chain monitoring, sales and operations planning, demand management, inventory planning, and supply planning into a comprehensive solution, which also supports the integration of data from external systems (for example, SAP ERP or SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization).
The recommended integration solution between SAP IBP and on-premise systems is SAP Cloud Platform Integration for data services.
Errors in SAP IBP as well as exceptions in SAP CPI-DS can be monitored by SAP Solution Manager.
The following technical prerequisites have to be met in order to monitor this scenario:
In the context of Hybrid Scenarios, data collectors are connecting from Solution Manager to the Cloud Service provider, in order to collect exceptions and/or statistical data. To allow this outgoing connection from Solution Manager, the SSL Certificate of the Cloud Service provider has to be imported in Trust Manager (STRUST).
To monitor the hybrid scenario end-to-end you have to monitor the on-premise components of the hybrid scenario as well as the integration solution and the cloud application itself. This leads to different monitoring objects for the different scenario components.
For some monitoring objects you have to configure Exception Management in SAP Solution Manager first, as this collects the exceptions and provides them to Interface and Connection Monitoring. The setup documentation will instruct you accordingly.
On the business application side, SAP IBP processes data and creates forecasts using data from any backend system (typically a SAP ERP system), i.e. there are important inbound and outbound data processes as well as forecast runs. Important jobs therefore are the Data Integration*, Forecast* jobs. These application jobs should be also monitored as part of the application/ business process operations monitoring.
The following monitoring objects are relevant for the SAP IBP scenario:
|Scenario Component||Use Case||Monitoring Object||Description||Monitoring Template||Since SP|
|Exceptions in SAP CPI for DS||Exceptions in integration flows in SAP Cloud Platform Integration for data services for the SAP IBP hybrid scenario integration||Cloud (SAP HCI DS)||7.2 SP03|
|Exceptions in SAP IBP||Error logs in SAP Integrated Business Planning||Cloud (SAP IBP)||7.2 SP04|
|Application Jobs in SAP IBP||Technical Status, Application Log Status, Duration, Start Delay, End Delay, Out of Time Window and Not Started on Time metrics for individual Application Jobs in SAP Integrated Business Planning||N/A||7.2 SP05 (check SAP Note 2669548)|
|Metric Name||Description||MAI Category||Since SP|
|Number of exceptions in SAP IBP||
Number of exceptions detected in SAP IBP.
Exception statistics is retrieved from central Exception Management in Solution Manager. Data Collection is executed in delta mode.
The statistics are based on single exceptions which are retrieved via an API from SAP IBP into central Exception Management in Solution Manager.
|Single exceptions in SAP IBP||
Single exceptions detected in SAP IBP.
Exceptions are retrieved via an API from SAP IBP into central Exception Management in Solution Manager. Data Collection is executed in delta mode.
You need the following information to create the cloud service:
The user that will be maintained in the RFC endpoint, must be a user declared in the relevant Communication Arrangement defined in SAP Cloud for Customer for enabling the API used by Solution Manager. To arrange a communications agreement and allow SAP Solution Manager access please proceed as following:
The Cloud Services configuration is now accessible from the SAP Solution Manager Configuration (SOLMAN_SETUP) → Managed Systems Configuration → Tab 'Cloud Services'.
Create Cloud Service:
The second step is to create the end-point for the cloud service.
Create the End-Point:
After the basic configuration you now have to configure Exception Management, as the exceptions collected via Exception Management and stored in the central exception store are the basis for the Integration Monitoring data collection.
To access the Exception Management setup please go to transaction SOLMAN_SETUP → Application Operations → Exception Management
The last step is the configuration of Interface and Connection Monitoring. The Interface and Connection Monitoring setup can be accessed via SAP Solution Manager Configuration (SOLMAN_SETUP).
Configuration for Monitoring Template: Cloud (SAP IBP)
To access the Integration Monitoring setup please go to SAP Solution Manager Configuration (SOLMAN_SETUP) → Application Operations → Integration Monitoring → Interface and Connections.
Navigate to the step 'Define Scope'. You can create a new scenario for the SAP ByD monitoring or use an existing one. Make sure the on premise system for the SAP ByD scenario and the Cloud Service created for SAP ByD is part of the Interface and Connection Monitoring scenario.
Create the Interface Channel:
Maintain the Interface:
User: User creating the log entry
You can maintain attributes as described in the Interface and Connection Monitoring Setup on the tab 'Attributes'.
Thresholds and the collection schedule are maintained in the next step of the guided procedure. Once you have maintained all your channels, click 'Next' in the main guided procedure to move to the step 'Activation'.
Maintain Thresholds and Schedule:
In the following we describe the monitoring configuration for an individual cloud Application Job.
To access the Job Monitoring setup please go to SAP Solution Manager Configuration (SOLMAN_SETUP) → Application Operations → Job Monitoring
Note: You need to have configured the IBP system as cloud service in the Managed System Configuration as described above and you need to have done the steps described in note SAP Note 2669548, beside others apply the BCSet attached to the note.
Navigate to the step 'Define Scope'. You can create a new scenario for the monitoring or use an existing one. Add the IBP system/tenant as external service to the monitoring scenario.
