Changes in installation facts

Hi experts,

I have to update one installation fact through an abap-program, but the customer requests to track the changes made on this installation fact.

Do you know if f.m. BAPI_UTILINSTALLATION_CHANFACT or ISU_INST_FACTS_UPDATE activate the changes track? Do you know any other f.m or program to achieve that?

What I need is if changes made are written also in tables CDHDR and CDPOS.

    Hi David

    The function ISU_INST_FACTS_UPDATE doesn't meet your requirements, because it doesn't update the applocation log tables CDHDR, CDPOS.


    Personally, I'm not a big fan of BAPI functions, because the field names don't match the fieldnames of the underlying tables. You will find the function ISU_S_INSTLN_CHANGE inside, which is also used for the data migration workbench for migrating FACTS.

    Also in your case you want to select all the existing information of the installation, ideally in the format used for the ISU_S_INSTLN_CHANGE (see parameters X_AUTO/X_OBJ). This can easily be done via function ISU_S_INSTLN_PROVIDE:

    call function 'ISU_S_INSTLN_PROVIDE'

    * Do your changes

    call function 'ISU_S_INSTLN_CHANGE'

    commit work.
