How to reset OSS Notes with Question mark status in SPAU

Hi,

We are doing SPAU adjustments. In that under Note we have many OSS notes with status "Question Mark". We ran SAPRUPGM again. But still we have this question mark.

We realized some of the notes are not applicable and want to reset. But when I select the note and reset, it gives a pop up to confirm the reset. I select "reset" there. But instead of reseting it gives me a popup asking to download the OSS note. If I cancel it it goes back to the initial SPAU screen. Nothing done. If I okay it it tries downloading the note.

How to solve this situation?

Can you also tell me if it is okay to leave the notes without resetting.

Regards,

Ravikanth

Hi,

Check with Tcode = snote and also check with OSS note.

here you can reset any OSS notes.

Same problem through OSS Notes also. However we raised it with basis team and they ran couple of reports and now the status are set properly.

Thanks for the help.

Can you provide more details on how you solved this? We have the same problem, old obsolete Notes showing with green question mark status. Clicking the question mark does not properly kick off the job per SAP Help (By clicking the green question mark you can restart the background process manually. You can also execute report SAPRUPGM directly.)

I don't know if we should run SAPRUPGM directly or if there is anotheer solution.

Thx!

Hi Jason,

Go to SE38, enter SAPRUPGM. Then choose Execute in Background. Press F4 in the Variants field. It will give you only one variant (SAP&ALL). Use that variant and schedule the Background Job immediately. This should resolve the OSS Note entries with Question marks.

Appreciate the reply. I of course did try to re-execute SAPRUPGM. In background, it runs for 2 seconds and produces no log or spool. When I run on-line, and un-tick the box for output log file, the resulting list shows these messages for the gree question mark notes. These notes are no longer visible in SNOTE. Basically I'm stuck - with the green question mark, I don't know how to get rid of these Notes in SPAU.

You need to logoff the system and then go to SPAU. Even then if they still continue to be in Question Mark, you can ignore them. Before proceeding do a check if all the notes are obsolete.

You can safely go and adjust other objects in SPAU.
