Processing pending V3 update requests
The purpose of this document is to assist with the processing of pending V3 update requests (transaction SM13).
V3 update requests are called "collective run updates", and are not automatically processed by the update mechanism.
These updates are not considered to be critical or urgent.
Critical/urgent update requests should be created as a V1 update.
A background job (transaction SM36/SM37) needs to be schedule to collect and process pending V3 update requests.
Each application area has to provide its own job / report.
Therefore, the first step is to verify whether the application has such report, and what are the guidelines provided by the application regarding how to schedule the job (daily, weekly, etc.).
In case the application does not provide such report, the generic report "RSM13005" can be used.
