CIF queue naming

Hi Gurus,

has anybody experience in manipulation of CIF Queue Names ?


We run APO PP/DS & SNP on several production sites ( R/3 plants / APO locations ).

During APO PP/DS planning run & optimization we have to stop the CIF inbound queues in APO.

Currently we have to stop all of them: CF* -> STOP

For some CIF Objects like material master the queue names contain the R/3 plant.

see oss note 786446


But for some other objects like Planned Orders, Confirmations, Puchchase Orders, Sales Orders, ....

there is no information within the queue name about the oganizational unit of the document ( like plant, purchase org, sales org, ... )

We'd like to change the queue names of those CIF Objects in order to stop CIF Inbound Queues in a more specific way, rather than we can do at the moment.

Would be great to get your opinion on this topic.

Thank you

    Hi ,

    Please see if this snote " 1584727 - /SAPAPO/CQ: BAdi to display additional data for the queues " could be of any help.

    • Hello Raimund,

      very interesting question. I never tried but I now did a few checks on that:

      From my understanding the queue name is just for serialization. As long as you always use the same naming rule this should be no problem, I just recommend to keep the first part of the queue name the same (CFMATxx for example) and of course do not forget the limitation to 24 characters. The main topic is to get the data (content of the queue) to know how to extend the queue names. Therefore the above mentioned OSS note can be used.

      I did something similar with an implicit enhancement point in functional module TRFC_QIN_INSERT. There you have a central point where you can access all queues coming in.
