Creating Process Chains for DSO

By Sandhya Punuru, Perot Systems

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:

  1. Direct Scheduling:
  2. Start Using Meta Chain or API  

In my example I have chosen Direct Scheduling as I am processing only one chain i.e DSO. Click on “Change Selections  

In the below screen shot, you can give the scheduling details i.e the Immediate, Date& time etc. and click on SAVE  

The Screen shot below indicates that we have started the process.  

Step 4:

  1. Click on the icon process types as shown in the below figure. You will get a list of options.
  2. In my example I am scheduling for DSO. To process we need to have InfoPackage, DTP’s for the corresponding DSO
  3. Open the tree Load Process and Post Processing, We need to drag and drop “Execute InfoPackage”  


Step 5: Once you drag and drop the “Execute infopackage” we get the below Popup. We need to keyin the Infopackage name. To do this click on F4 and chose your Infopackage and click on ENTER

Step 5: Once you drag & drop the InfoPackage, the corresponding DTP’s and the corresponding Active Data table are automatically called.  

Step 6: Save + Activate and Execute the Process.
