Execute Activity (like SU520) from MII


Hello community!

Is there a way to execute Activity (that is listed in Activity Maintenance) from MII transaction? I found PAPI executeActivity, but can't figure out what should be all the inputs.

I wanted to call resolveActivityExecutionDetails PAPI to get the input structure, but that PAPI always ends in error (no matter which activity I send as input), I assume this one is bugged.

I would need to call SU520 (Place SFC on immediate hold) from MII transaction.

Could anyone help, please?

The HOLD PAPI are available in the Package, HoldServiceInterface, the method you want is placeSfcOnImmediateHold. If you don't have them already, Download the ME JavaDocs from for your version; they have complete documentation on all the exposed PAPI.

SU520 allows settings about SIGNOFF before SFC is placed on hold. This behavior can be turned off in Activity maintenance. If I use mentioned PAPI, the SIGNOFF can't be turned off and is always done (no matter the settings for SU520). I need to prevent the Signoff. I was checking for some input in the PAPI that would allow modify such behaviour, but there is none. That is why I was thinking of using the Activity SU520 from MII, instead of placeSfcOnImmediateHold as that may be using same Java method in the end, but the singoff can't be prevented (or I don't know how to do that). In activity_log table, there is mentioned activity SU520 in case of using Activity from ME and EXTERNAL in case of using PAPI, I don't think both variants run exactly the same code.
