SAPEVT Instead of Complicated Ways of Triggering Events

Why does SAP not promote SAPEVT more? This is a very easy event driver that works nicely and is simple to use.

However, hardly any SAP Basis people seem to know about it.

Hi Maxx.

In my opinion the reason could be that sapevet is a command line program you run at the operating system level, and normally there is no access.

It is more convenient to fire events with a report that calls FM P_EVENT_RAISE.

By the way, the tag SAP Event Management refers to component of Supply Change Execution, not related to the batch jobs events.

Best regards, Rafael

Thanks, you are right about the FM if one only lives w/in SAP. I like SAPEVT to call events from outside the SAP system. E.g. you can have a "real-time" kick-off of from an external customer w/o having to wrestle with/explain "Restful" mumbo jumbo. I am just at a loss why SAP does not tout SAPEVT more.
