Event Based Process Chains

5 Sep

There may be a requirement where you may need to schedule a process chain after an event is being triggered.

In this Example I have a process chain A runs weekly, when completed should trigger an event which will result in execution of Process chain B.

Steps to be followed is as follows :

Step 1) Create an Event–>    Go to Transaction code SM62   –> Select  BckProcEvnts tab  –> Create an event.


In the snapshot  above  we can see I have created an Event ‘ZTEST’.

Step 2) Create variant for Program ”BTC_EVENT_RAISE”

    Go to se38 –> Enter Program name ‘BTC_EVENT_RAISE’—> Select Variant radio Button –> Click Display


Enter a name for Variant and click ‘Create’.


In the following screen, enter the event name which you have created in SM62 (in Step 1). In my case I had created ‘ZTEST’ Event.Image

Click on Attributes , enter description for variant  and click on ‘Save’


Step 3) Go to Process Chain A

At the end of your Process chain, insert process type ‘ABAP Program’.


In the next Screen insert  the ABAP Program ‘BTC_EVENT_RAISE’.

Enter the variant created in Step 2.


Your Process chain A will look like this


Schedule process chain A as per your requirement .Example I scheduled it weekly, (on Sunday, Morning 6 AM)


Step 4  ) Go to your RSPC and open Process chain B

Go to Start Variant –> Change selections –> After Event –> Enter the Event Name created in Step 1.

Check box ‘Periodic job’


Now , every Sunday 6 am Process chain A  gets executed. As soon as the ABAP Program is completed  in the last step of Process chain A, event ZTEST is gets triggered and as a result of that Process chain B starts.

So you get the desired result as per event based scenario.
