Update requests

This monitor is dedicated to the monitoring of SAP updates.
It will look for updates with ERROR, NOT_COMPLETED or INCONSISTENT status. 

Configuration hints

  • This monitor will look for updates in the following states:
    • NOT_COMPLETED: the update is in the temporary table of updates to process
    • ERROR: The update is in the temporary table and has an error status (from VBERROR)
    • INCONSISTENT: The update is orphan and won’t be processed (like the ones from RSM13001→COUNTI)
  • You can customize the monitoring in order to match updates from a specific client, user, TCode or report.
  • Use the surveillance table to adjust the monitoring settings: Thresholds, severity, filters, etc…
  • Only the number of inconsistent updates can be collected, filters won't work with this type.

Multi severity threshold


  • Send metadata:
    • If enabled, this parameter will send collected results as metadata to the configured plugins/integrations
    • It can usually be retrieved as logs or tabular data within the corresponding integrations
