2847405 - Webservice Messages are Canceled Automatically by the System


Inbound Webservice messages are getting canceled by the system automatically.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to Cloud for Customer.
  2. Go to Administrator workcenter.
  3. Open General Settings view.
  4. Click Web Service Message Monitoring view.
  5. Find the relevant message.
  6. Status is Canceled.


Canceled message has SenderSequenceNumberValue smaller than the previous successful message for the corresponding object.

SenderSequenceNumberValue represents the time-stamp of the IDoc or Webservice message creation in the sender system, so higher the SenderSequenceNumberValue, cloud for customer would treat that as the latest data.

To avoid overwriting of data with outdated record(message), cloud for customer just simply cancels any message being processed having smaller SenderSequenceNumberValue than the previously successful message for that particular object like Sales Order, Business Partners etc.


Canceling of messages with smaller SenderSequenceNumberValue is an expected system behavior to avoid overwriting of data with outdated records, such canceled messages can be ignored.

Additionally the successful message can be searched using Advanced Search/Filter in Message Monitoring view with Remote Object ID.
