The TLA for AWS Systems Manager Incident Manager is SMI. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.

About The Service

Systems Manager Incident Manager is an incident management console designed to help users mitigate and recover from incidents affecting their Amazon Web Services-hosted applications. An incident is any unplanned interruption or reduction in quality of services.

Incident Manager increases incident resolution by notifying responders of impact, highlighting relevant troubleshooting data, and providing collaboration tools to get services back up and running. To achieve the primary goal of reducing the time-to-resolution of critical incidents, Incident Manager automates response plans and enables responder team escalation.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for AWS Systems Manager Incident Manager, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_SMI_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_smi)       = /aws1/cl_smi_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_smi is an instance of /AWS1/IF_SMI, and all of the operations in the AWS Systems Manager Incident Manager service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_SMI.
