SAP Business ByDesign


  • Navigate to the WoC Application and User Management work center
  • Go to the Data Flow Verification(DFV) Results view
  • Find and select the respective Result ID
  • Click on start document synchronization if enabled.
  • If the repeat check button is enabled then click on it to generate new action log that shows current errors. You can take action as per the errors and then click on Repeat check button. Follow this steps until you have no errors. If error still exists( you can search for help documents for those erros in help center to solve the errors)
  • Once done again do the synchronization and repeat check.
  • Also check if there are open tasks which respective users can restart  as mentioned in the KBA 2834513 - How to Restart a Process Communication Message in the User Interface 
  •  also check the  errors under application user management> process communication errors view> Open errors with incidents, then take action ad per the errors
  •  Then restart the stuck messages as per the details mentioned in above KBA.
  • Once done again do the synchronization and repeat check and if you still need help then you can raise a incident for each unique error.
  • If the DFV has no errors or Repeat check is disabled that means no action is required except you have to manually click on button"change status to closed".
  • We don't close the DFV automatically even if the errors are zero cause, when DFV was raised there was an error and some action  was expected and  thus repeat check is required and  you have to manually close after taking necessary actions if any.
  • Ensure to manually close all the DFV which now has zero errors by clicking on  button"change status to closed"
