Regarding Object Functional Area (FN)


Hi Folks,

The client is currently on EhP4 and will be upgrading to EhP5 soon.

Also the Netweaver version currently is 7.0 and will be upgrading to portal Enhancement Pack 3 of 7.0

The client needs full fledged Job Architecture and Competency Management. The blueprint discussions have already concluded and the discussions were done assuming we have the Functional area and Job Family objects as part of the Job architecture structure.

I just got access to client SAP and discovered the "Functional Area (FN)" object missing from the object list in PP01.

In this regards, I have the below queries:

* Is the object FN available only with EhP6 and above versions?

If No, will this issue be as simple as missing table entries?

If Yes, with EhP4 or 5 implemented, can we create a new object with same name FN and maintain the corresponding relationships as will be done in standard post EhP6? And will the profile match-up consider the custom created FN object during comparisons in ECC transaction and on portal (during development plans and succession planning comparisons) ?

Kindly help.
