I've configuring archiving on my XIP system. Old messages are flagged as "TO BE DELETED" because they weren't in "Define interfaces for archiving ...." !!!
I'd like to know if I can change this flag to "TO BE ARCHIVED" directly in SXMSPMAST. Are there any other tables I need to do something?
no, this has to be tagged in SXMB_ADM per interface in "Interfaces for archiving and persist duration" before you send any messages for the required interfaces. All message sent before can only be deleted.
With standard functions from SAP there is no possibility!
Possibly the direct change in the table is ok, but I have no experience with it.
From my point of knowledge it should be only this table!
