Can we create custom objects in SRM standard content

Hi Experts,

We are working on SRM integration, imported the SRM standard content into ESR which have the standard DT/MT/SI.

Can we import or create the custom objects like DT/MT/MM/SI and OM in ESR under SAP standard namespace.

" "

i have to send the data to third-party web-service. so i have to import the target message structure and do the mapping.

can we do this under the standard content?

    i think  you can do that by changing the object property in SWCV defination/

    uncheck "object are original objects"

    But do remember that it's not a good practise or suggestible to edit the standard content. You can copy them into another SWCV and add the custom content to it.

    • Hi Hareesh,

      i don't want to edit anything in standard content.

      i just want to import the target structure into standard namespace as external def and create the message mapping/ OM b/w standard DT and the external def.

      create service interface for receiver.

      so if we uncheck the objects are original objects, we can create them right..

    Hi Bhargava,

    Technically you can create object under the standard SAP namespace but it is not good approach. If you update/upgrade the standard content then you can loose your customization in the SWCV.

    It is better to copy the object in custom SWCV and use/modify them.

    • Please check the 3rd point in Activity status. the namespace name should be same


      Perform the following preparatory steps before executing the release transfer:


      1. The new software component version that you want to transfer the objects to must be entered in the System Landscape Directory (SLD). SAP software component versions are imported from PPMS. A customer can create his own software component versions in the System Landscape Directory.

      2. Import the new software component version into the ES Repository (see: Importing Software Component Versions).

      3. To be able to transfer objects to the imported software component version, you must first assign namespaces to it. The namespaces must have the same names as those namespaces from which you want to transfer the objects.

      To actually transfer design objects, proceed as follows:

    Why you dont create a new software compoent at sld and put dependencies of SRM ?

    With this process you can edit, without affect the swcv oficial.

    I dont recommend you change the objets of stantard SWCV.

    Kind regards,
