Dear Experts,

We are in process of setting up the SRM 7.0 Ehp1 system. When we click on the Shop, we are getting blank pop screen which says

500 SAP Internal Server Error

ERROR: The ASSERT condition was violated. (termination: RABAX_STATE)

We have checked in ST22 and it reads as below

Category                          -  ABAP Programming Error

Runtime Errors                -  ASSERTION_FAILED

ABAP Program                 - /SAPSRM/CL_PDO_SO_CATLGSEARCH=CP

Application Component  - SRM

Short text

    The ASSERT condition was violated.

What happened?

    In the running application program, the ASSERT statement recognized a situation that should not have occurred.

    The runtime error was triggered for one of these reasons:

    - For the checkpoint group specified with the ASSERT statement, the activation mode is set to "abort".

    - Via a system variant, the activation mode is globally set to "abort" for checkpoint groups in this system.

    - The activation mode is set to "abort" on program level.

    - The ASSERT statement is not assigned to any checkpoint group.

Information on where terminated

    Termination occurred in the ABAP program "/SAPSRM/CL_PDO_SO_CATLGSEARCH=CP" -


    The main program was "SAPMHTTP ".

    In the source code you have the termination point in line 3

    of the (Include) program "/SAPSRM/CL_PDO_SO_CATLGSEARCH=CM00Y".

Also we have checked the SRM_Self_Service_1 business Function is already activated.

Can you please provide your suggestions.

your ABAP user (PFCG transaction) has EhP1 role /SAPSRM/EMPLOYEE_EHP1.

As a consequence, /SAPSRM/IF_PDO_SO_CATLGSEARCH~INITIALISE_WS method is called (/SAPSRM/CL_PDO_SO_CATLGSEARCH class) when you launch transaction "Shop".

This method checks customizing Switch SRM_701_SIMPLIFIED_SC is activated: if not, you will have a DUMP.

I think you activated Business Function SRM_SELF_SERVICE_1 but not the concerned customizing switch:

You were exactly right!  I double-checked, and we had exactly the combination of factors you described.  I didn't see anywhere in the documentation which says that if you activate SRM_SELF_SERVICE_1 you must also activate SRM_701_SIMPLIFIED_SC, but doing so indeed solved the problem.  Thank you!

Ok, on to the next problem to resolve...

Best regards,

Hello Matt, Hello Laurent,

Thanks for your suggestion. I did check in my system. I have two landscapes and system is behaving differently. So I am not sure what might the issue in my case. I face the same issue as well.

Both the systems are similar in version and patch level.

Dev landscape : Scenario is working fine.

SRM_SELF_SERVICE_1                   not acitvated

SRM_701_SIMPLIFIED_SC              not present at all.

Test landscape :  Scenario is not working, with the code dump as mentioned in the ticket.

SRM_SELF_SERVICE_1                      not activated

SRM_701_SIMPLIFIED_SC                  not present at all.

Kindly advice.

Hi karthik ,

Can you c ompare your roles for the users as well in both the systems ?

It seems you have Business Function linked to ESS activated, but in Portal, your SRM user with SRM role does not have corresponding EhP1 Portal role

Please paste here the roles for both the users as well .

If you are not planning to activate the EhP1 functions and customizing switches, then you also need to not assign the EhP1 roles to your users.  We determined that we don't want to use the Simplified Shopping Cart at this time, and so when we deactivated SRM_701_SIMPLIFIED_SC and SRM_SELF_SERVICE_1, we also had to switch which role we assigned to users, i.e. assign /SAPSRM/EMPLOYEE instead of /SAPSRM/EMPLOYEE_EHP1.

Thanks Matt.  Came across the same issue today.  Odd that the role and enhancement pack are related...

We are getting this exact same symptom and error, on the same line of code.  This is a newly upgraded system to SRM 7.0 EhP3 from SRM 5.0.  We are using the Portal-Independent Navigation Frame (i.e., no Portal).

Can you check if your portal user has corresponding role?
