Fault Message Types

Hi experts
i have a following scenario. the scenario is SOAP to XI to ECC, and from XI to ECC RFC's are being used. i have doubt about the fault message types?
what are fault message types and why should they be created???
for the above required scenario does"fault message types are to be created or not" plz let me know.
Thanx in advance

Hi,
>>ii have doubt about the fault message types? what are fault message types and why should they be created???
According to help.sap.com http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nwpi71/helpdata/EN/dd/b7623c6369f454e10000000a114084/content.htm
Fault message types are designed for application-specific errors that occur at the provider (inbound side) and that are reported back to the sender or persisted in monitoring.
1) In the synchronous case, when an application-specific error occurs on the inbound side, instead of sending a response message back to the sender, the application can send a fault message to handle the error.
2) The fault message of the application for an asynchronous ABAP server proxy is persisted for monitoring. In the case asynchronous of Java server proxies, the fault message is part of a negative application acknowledgment (see Acknowledgments).
>>for the above required scenario does"fault message types are to be created or not" plz let me know.
You can send the exception of RFC in Fault message type. (Provided the RFC raises an exception)

    Hi Smitha,
    <i>1. what are fault message types and how do we catch any exceptions in file to proxy scenario , can any one give simple example</i>
    Fault Message are Msg type that provided whenever u create a namespace..they are usually used to get the exception or error mapped which has occured while execution of Application at the sender/receiver end....
    One scenario where i had used it from Soap to RFC where i defined the exception in rfc source code at r/3 end...I mapped that exception to Fault msg type that i created of my own type(didnt used the default)..

  • Error handling using fault message type in outbound synchronous ABAP proxy

    Hi,
    We've a scenario, outbound synchronous ABAP proxy to synchronous SOAP receiver. The requirement is to send multiple records in a single rquest and get response for all the records sent (in the same response message).
    Say if I send 10 records from ECC, I should get 10 records as response from SOAP to ECC. But the problem here is, there could be some invalid requests, for which an invalid error status code should be sent as part of response.
    Source Structure
    Req_Proxy
        req (0..unbounded, string)
    Response Structure
    Resp_SOAP
      Resp (0..Unbounded)
           respString (0..1, String) (carries the actaul response message)
          status code (0..1, String) (carries the status of the response, for ex, 001 (successful), 002 (error))
    And now we are planning to make use of Fault Message Type, to track the errors from SOAP (status code 002). But, we are not sure on how to track this for all the requested records. Is it possible to track the errors for all the requested records in a singe call using fault message type? For eg if 8 records are successful and 2 are invalid, then we should get 10 records in response 8 for valid and 2 for invalid accordingly.
    Please calrify.
    Thanks.
    Rohit

    For eg if 8 records are successful and 2 are invalid, then we should get 10 records in response 8
    for valid and 2 for invalid accordingly.
    Check if you can modify the WSDL structure to include an error node that would get populated incase of invalid entries....this would mean that you get the success and failure details in the single message....also at the proxy-end make the necessary change in your DT.....may be then you do not need to use the fault message...

  • Difference in Fault message types & exceptions for Webservice in ABAP

    Hello all,
    I am relatively new to the web service framework in SAP. My problem scenario is as follows.
    I have a WSDL file of a webservice from 3rd party non-SAP s/w  and I want to replicate the same webservice into SAP by creating FM in SE37 with same imp/exp parameters and functionality.
    So I first created a consumer proxy using the external WSDL file of non-SAP webservice. This generated imp/exp DDIC structures in SAP. Now I created a RFC FM in SE37 with similar Imp/exp parameters and relesed this FM as a webservice.  I then created another consumer proxy using WSDL of this newly created webservice in SAP.
    In the old consumer proxy I see a structure as SOAPFault as a Fault message type which has 3 fields ERRORCODE, TEXT, DETAILS but in the newly created consumer proxy I don't see Fault message types but i see exceptions which i mentioned in exception tabs while creating the FM. The imp/exp parameters are identical.
    So my question is while creating a web service in SAP using a FM in SE37, what needs to be done in order to get the Fault message types getting created automatically when we create a consumer proxy for this webserivice?
    Also based on the WSDL of 3rd party system , can i replicate the same web service in SAP ?
    Appreciate your expert advice on this.

    Hi Krishna,
    I've read the SAP description about Fault Message Types but I'm still struggling on how to use them correctly.
    Why do we need them if I can't do nothing with it on the BPM side? After the mapping of the FMT, I'd like to acess it so that I can send a description back to the original system...The thing is, in BPM you can't acess the FMT, you can only create a new BRANCH (on a block step) for it...
    I've tried to acess the description text on trace which comes with the message, but it seems that the trace only serves for posting info, and not for getting any...
    The Mapping Runtime Constants have some information where you can read some descriptions, but nothing related to the errors....You can read the Receiver service, sender, interface_namespace, but nothing from the ERROR tag...
    Is there a way to get the description? Or anything related to the error tag?
    Thanks in advance

  • Using Fault Message Type in BPM

    Hi,

  • Fault message types: Why do we need them?

    Hi guys,
    I have a bpm scenario created, tested and working.
    This bpm starts with a async receive, a Sync Send to a R3 system by an ABAP proxy and a final async send to the original system.
    I'm contemplating exception handling and other type of errors. Meaning, if the abap proxy dumps I can raise an exception and map it on the XI environment. The thing is, on  sxmb_moni I get the exception handler, with the exception texts, id's, etc... from the R3 being mapped to the XI fault message type.
    But the problem is I can't get to map the text from the fault message type into any field from the response of the original system.
    I've searched the forum and I've seen that this area is surrounded by doubts and questions...
    But in the end I'm forced to place the question, why do I need the fault message types? What use can I give them, besides of the cute little thunder on the sxmb_moni?
    Thanks for your attention guys

  • Fault message type using in File to IDoc Scenario

    Hi,
    I have successfully configured File to IDoc scenario. Now I am thinking to add some flavour to it by using Fault message type.
    Can I use fault message type without using any proxies?
    Can some body help in giving an answer to my question and provide some weblogs to achieve the configuration?
    Thanks in advance.
    Suraj Kumar

    Hi Suraj,
    With IDOCs, you cannot set up fault messages as it is async mode communication. There is not control which waits for the processing of the message/application errors as you have it in case of synch mode.
    But, you can set up acknowledgement using ALEAUD. Check this for more /people/saravanakumar.kuppusamy2/blog/2005/01/20/configuration-tips-for-a-business-serviceintegration-process-to-send-back-ale-audit-idoc

  • Is it mandatory to use a Fault Message Type.

    Hi all
    I am currently doing a Soap-Proxy synchronous scenario,where by sending an employee id through webservice to SAP ECC ,employee details will be retreived from ECC as a response.
    In this scenario, is it necessary to specify the Fault Message Type in the outbound and inbound synchronous Message interfaces and do the corresponding message mapping for Fault message types.
    Asvance Thanks,
    Ram.

    Hi ram,
    It is not at all mendetary to use Fault message in ur case.Usually it depends upon requirement.If client want's to implement ...u have to use.
    generally fault messages are used wen u want to catch some exception viz. ECC server is down,Employee ID does not exist.,No record found for the given EmpID etc....ect.......

  • Automizing error message with Fault Message Type

    (Request F6)  (Request F6)

          SAP (Doesn't have F6)
       (Respons: error)    (Respons. error)
    (Problem) When the request message doesn't content sufficient information that is required for respons then the XI team will get the message error and the responsibility to solve the problem. In this scenario it is the XI team that sends the error respons to the System.

    (Solution) We want to automatize the process so that the error message goes directly to the System via XI. In other words we only want an acknowledgment of the error in XI, we don't want to solve the error since we believe that it is the sender System that is responsible.
    We have seen that there is a Fault Message Type in the Message Interface and we are wondering if that is the way to do it? And it that case, how?

    Hi,
    Fault message is a error meesage. Its like an exception in simple terms. The fault message is used to
    store a log for application error. Fault messages is defined in IR.
    To give a overview on Fault messages it is mostly used in synchronous communication. When an error
    occurs at the inbound side instead of sending the response message back it sends a fault message back
    to the sender system to handle error.
    Fault Message are Msg type that provided whenever u create a namespace..they are usually used to get
    the exception or error mapped which has occured while execution of Application at the sender/receiver
    end....
    One scenario where i had used it from Soap to RFC where i defined the exception in rfc source code at
    r/3 end...I mapped that exception to Fault msg type that i created of my own type(didnt used the
    default)..
    Fault messages are used to propogate / send back the error message to the calling application. This is
    used when there is a failure and the sending system needs to know what the error was. This is more of
    catching Application Errors

  • Alert and Fault Message type Usage

    Hi All,
    I struck to the use of Alert and Fault message type.
    (a) Can we use Alert in scenarios without BPM ? If yes where can we use?
    (b) Can we use Fault Message Type in scenarios except Proxy ? If yes, how?
    Kindly suggest me .
    Thanks
    Anup

    Hi Rabi,
    In order to use Alert for your File to File scenario, you need to setup Alert Configuration.
    To configure alerts, you need to create the following:
    1. Alert Categories in tcode ALRTCATDEF
        - Here you need to define the alert message that will be sent once error occured and alert has been triggered. You would need to define here the recipients who will receive email notifications about the error message.
    2. Alert Rules in Runtime Workbench
    - Here you need to define which alert category you would use based on the rules you set. You can define if the error is in the Integration Engine or in Adapter Engine (for errors in File Communication channels). Also, you need to define condition for  the alert by selecting the sender and  receiver systems, interfaces that would be involved for the alert.
    For further details, you may look the SAP documentation:

    hi folks,
                what is the use of fault message type in message mapping . where do we use them .please spare a little time to type rather to refer to  other blogs. have a nice day

    Hi Bose
    Fault messages are used to propogate / send back the error maessage to the calling application. This is used when there is a failue and the sending system needs to know what the error was. This is more of catching Application Errors.
    Also please go through the link below to get the details for fault messages...
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/5d/a45c3cff8ca92be10000000a114084/content.htm
    fault message is a message that describes an application-specific error situation
    we have standardised fault message in XI.
    Fault message types are designed for application-specific errors that occur on the inbound side and that are reported back to the sender or persisted in monitoring.
    In the synchronous case, when an application-specific error occurs on the inbound side, instead of sending a response message back to the sender, the application can send a fault message to handle the error.
    The fault message of the application for an asynchronous ABAP server proxy is persisted for monitoring. In the case asynchronous of Java server proxies, the fault message is part of a negative application acknowledgement
    Application-specific means that the application on the inbound side triggers the error itself because, for example, the request message did not contain sufficient information
    See the below links
