Creating Process Chains for DSO

A process chain is a sequence of processes that are scheduled to wait in the background for an event. Some of these processes trigger a separate event that can, in turn, start other processes. It looks similar to a flow chart. You define the list of Infopackages / DTPs that is needed to load the data, say delta or Full load. Then you schedule the Process chain as hourly, daily, monthly, etc, depending on the requirement Use: If you want to automatically load and schedule a hierarchy, you can include this as an application process in the procedure for a Process Chain Note: Before you define process chains, you need to have the Objects ready i.e DSO, Cubes etc

Steps to Create Process Chains Step 1: Go to RSPC transaction. Click on Create. Give Process chain name and Description.

Step 2: Give the Start process name and description and click on Enter Note: Each process chain should start with a Start Process

Step 3: The next screen will show the Scheduling options. There are two options:


Click on “Change Selections” In the below screen shot.e the Immediate. Direct Scheduling: 2.e DSO. Start Using Meta Chain or API In my example I have chosen Direct Scheduling as I am processing only one chain i. 2 . and click on SAVE The Screen shot below indicates that we have started the process. Date& time etc. you can give the scheduling details i.1.

Open the tree Load Process and Post Processing . 2. Click on the icon process types as shown in the below figure. To do this click on F4 and chose your Infopackage and click on ENTER 3 . We need to keyin the Infopackage name. In my example I am scheduling for DSO. You will get a list of options. DTP’s for the corresponding DSO 3. To process we need to have InfoPackage. We need to drag and drop “Execute InfoPackage” Step 5: Once you drag and drop the “Execute infopackage” we get the below Popup.Step 4: 1.

Step 5: Once you drag & drop the InfoPackage. the particular chain will be displayed in red 4 . the corresponding DTP’s and the corresponding Active Data table are automatically called. Step 7: Once the process is completed. we can see the whole chain converted to Green. Which indicates the process is successfully completed Note: Incase of errors in any step. Step 6: Save + Activate and Execute the Process.

will lead you to InfoProvider Administration.Step 8: We can see if the data is successfully updated by Right-click on the Datastore Data Step 9: On selecting Administer Data Target. 5 .

6 .Step 10: Click on “Active Data” tab to see the data successfully uploaded.

Give appropriate name for the folder => Enter c. Similarly the process can be done for Cubes. SAVE + ACTIVATE 7 . If you want to create your own folders. by default they are stored in “ Not Assigned”. a) Click on the icon “Display Components” on your toolbar => choose F4 => Create b. When you create Process chains.Note: 1. Master data and Transactional data 2.
