How can I create a non-site-specific 'reference' in an IDAT file?

I want to create a Reason Code using an IDAT file. If I look at the javadocs and the database (after actually creating the code manually) I can sort of piece together some of the bits and pieces for the request. I attached my attempt to this note, and here is an image:

So ... there are multiple questions in the image, but the main one is: Where the API requires a 'reference' string to be passed, how can I create a reference string that does not refer to one specific site?

Are IDATs documented somewhere that I'm missing? I see examples in the some of the SDK training, but they don't really address my questions.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Well, I solved my own issue (the first one), but found more... I apologize in advance if this is 'old news' to most ME developers ...

    Loading the above IDAT resulted in this error, which is actually quite helpful:

    So I made this change to the IDAT, redeployed, and tried again. (In my environment, each cycle takes about 10 minutes)

    That fixed my status problem, and exposed my next error:

    My first attempt to fix this also failed:

    ... with this error:

    The underlying details are:

    To make the above easier to find here:


    com.sap.me.plant.SiteApplicationBean.reloadInitialData(com.sap.me.system.base.ApplicationVO) throws com.sap.me.frame.BasicBOBeanException method on bean instance com.sap.me.plant.SiteApplicationBean@25bc678a for bean sap.com/me~ear*xml|me.plant.ejb-6.1.4.16.jar*xml|SiteApplication in application sap.com/me~ear.; nested exception is: com.visiprise.frame.service.ext.ExtensionExecutionException: java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method java.lang.Object.toString() of a null object loaded from local variable 'propValue'

    Next attempt:

    That produced exactly the same exception.

    Next attempt:

    The result was a different, unrelated issue:

    So I think that I found the right combination of entries.

      Thanks Oksana. We've been told that the fix for 691248 will be in Patch 21. (It's odd that this is not visible on the ticket yet.) I'm not sure when we will install that, but we can make some progress, knowing that we will have the fix.

      Thanks,
