Question about STATUSRETRY, BW_ACTIVATE_CHAIN and incoherent Process Chain Status Detection

Discussion created by Pascal_Osthus-bugat_1753 on Oct 30, 2016
Process Chains Execution can be considered as ended, whereas they are only temporarily blocked in SAP. After a while they  will continue its execution. Now if the SAP Agent checks the status of this job at this time, it will consider the job as terminated and set the status to ENDED_OK in One Automation.

This information will not reflect the real situation because the Process Chain has not really ended yet. The Parameter STATUSRETRY (default value is 0), will help to prevent the agent from detecting the status of the job as ENDED_OK too early. STATUSRETRY will set the number of times the agent will check if a Process Chain is actually ended.

The time interval between 2 status checks is determined by the variable JOB_CHECKINTERVAL which is set in the UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT tab in the client 0.

The default value of this is 60 seconds.
