This is a step-by-step guide on how to register a new Alert Consumer in SAP PI/PO Component Based Message Alert framework (CBMA). New Alert Consumer registration is useful when you have a requirement to configure Interface specific alerts. In other words, in case you have a requirement to send alert notifications to different end users depending on the functionality or functional area of the interface.
For example, if you want to send alerts from Order to Cash (OTC) related interfaces to OTC@integrationhub.com, and alerts from Purchase to Pay (P2P) related interfaces to P2P@integrationhub.com, you have to register two consumers, one for OTC and one for P2P.
SAP Versions used in the illustration:
