Creation of Maintenance Notification

Former Member

Hello All,

I am trying to use BAPI "BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_CREATE" to create Maintenance Notification.  I am working on SAP ECC 6.0 Version.  When I try to create the same using IW21 transaction, by just passing Notificaiton type, Equiment Number and short text, I am able to create the notification.
If I try to pass the same value to BAPI, I am not getting the notification created, but also it is not giving back any message to return table.

Hi ashok,

Please check your notification number in export parameter NOTIFHEADER_EXPORT.

If everything is correct, you may not get the return table.

Use BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT and check the value of notif number.

Hi Arivazhagan Sivasamy,

I was passing sufficient data to bapi it was returning notification number "%0000000001".

and i entered the same data in iw21 i got notification number so i'm clear that data is correct,but i'm not sure that  why i'm getting this temparary number?

Hi Ashok

Please call BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_SAVE and BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT after the BAPI call. NOTIF_SAVE will return you the number

hi first use BAPI

BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_GET_DETAIL  and pass already created notification number to it.

it will give all the details of that notifications it will also help you to understand what parameters are to be passed to BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_CREATE . pass same parameters and check if it is creating notifications. i did same thing in my sytem and got details of notification number using it.

Hi Ashok,

You may given

CALL FUNCTION 'BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_SAVE'
   EXPORTING
     NUMBER              = OUT-NOTIF_NO
*   TOGETHER_WITH_ORDER = ' '
   IMPORTING
     NOTIFHEADER         = OUTPUT-
NOTIF_NO.

    NOTIFHEADER         = OUTPUT


You have to give OUTPUT NOT OUTPUT-NOTIF_NO.


Please check.
