Process chain warning


I created a process chain for master data text with 'Always' as link between the processes. Couple of 'processes' do not have data in the source system and hence ending up as warning(yellow) in the monitor, with return code 8. As a result, the next process connected to this process is running at all.

My point is since I used 'always' as connector between processes, the next process should be triggered. I manually changed status to 'green' and then the next process ran. Please give me your experiences and alternatives.

Thanks in anticipation


Info IDoc received with status 8. means no data available in ECC/R3... It is not loading issue.. Check the corresponding ECC/R3 table why data is not available.

Agreed. Still curious to know is

1)when the number of records are '0', an infopackage returns green. But in process chains why it does not turn green?

This is true, only if u have following setting

Double click ur infopackage .. follow menu

Schedular -> Traffic Light color for empty request -> select either green or red (usually red)

+2) what are the options to make sure the other processes run? +

What we r doing is for every datasource we created TWO infopackages one for manual load and other for (to include in) process chains. we did above setting for PC infopackage so that PC should continue to finish when the process type is connected with 'Always'
