Key user fields for custom BO

Hi,

we are developing a solution for many customers in terms of a solution template (former as a scalable). Now, some customers have (as always) specific requirements. We would like to address this using "key user field", so that customers theirselfs are able to add new customer-specific fields without the PDI.

Is it possbile to enable this piece of functionality for custom BOs?

Best regards,

Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    This functionality was added to the studio in version August 2013 (1308).

    Please refer to the topic "Create References to Customer-Specific Fields" in the Studio documentation for 1308.

    Best regards,

    Henrike Grötecke

      Hi Sunil,

      you cannot. What Georg means, is that the Partner BO is owned by you and thus you can add new elements to your BO at anytime. So if a key user requires a new customer specific field you need to add this in your code via PDI.

      In my opinion, this works as long as you do not have a solution that is used by lots of customers. Otherwise maintenance of the solution becomes very tedious.

      Best regards,

      Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    This is a good idea for customer to extend field in custom BO, I was working on solution where we have thought to provide key user field for custom BO but it seems not possible in current version

    and I came yo know that SAP key user fields created in adapt mode sits at a different table in backend, and partner content also have different place in repository.

    Currently we can create key user field for SAP BOs. I am also interested in this feature and wish that SAP will provide this feature soon.

    Regards
