4. Displaying Rounded values:

  • When ROUND=true then the result will be rounded

  • The default value of the the paramter is ROUND=false


Query: /STDF/DP_BPO:Solution=|Process=|Steps=|Context_id=|Metric=|SID=|COLOR_RATING=YES|legend= |visible=true|COLOR=#e8aeae|OCC_JUMP_IN=|display_value=false|System_Role=|Site=|Step=|ROUND=true

5. How to validate

Validation is done from the Business Process Monitoring:

Use transaction : sm_workcenter => Business Process monitoring => Business Process Monitoring

In this part we will take an example:

Query: /STDF/DP_BPO:COLOR=#aec7e8|legend=Open Sales Order|OCC_JUMP_IN=|SLA=|TREND=|G2Y=|Y2R=|COLOR_RATING=|DISPLAY_ATTRIBUTES=|visible=true|Solution=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG_2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG|System_Role=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG_2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGP|Site=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG_2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGPSITE|Scenario=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGP_02CcdQFd7kMDrA1N4pIdDW2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGPSITE|Process=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGP_2aaVgTjN7jQRklJvbEdBVW2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGPSITE|Step=2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hG2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGP_2aaVgTjN7jQRklJvbEbBVW2aaVgTjN7jQRkBzcgxZ8hGPSITE|Context_id=1255A578FFF21EE7918D4048EDCC4DE6|Metric=Open sales orders_001-001
