SAP WCM- how to add custom fields at Application and WCD level

Hi Experts,


I am implementing WCM solution with work permits on ECC 6.0, EhP7 platform. Most of the permit information I have planned to capture through catalogs, however there are many permit and certificate information which can't or shouldn't be covered under catalogs. As I understand SAP provides many options for enhancing the field options.

1. Option of 'Work' and 'Requirements' screen for capturing additional field information without BaDI implementation by appending the standard tables - my developer appended new fields in the provided includes, and I also defined the relevant spro steps of work, requirements and view profiles; however still those fields are not available for input at front-end application.

2. For custom field on custom screen, my developer activated the relevant BADIs - BADI_WCM_WCA_001 & BADI_WAPI_WCA_001, and I have defined the 'view profiles' for screens 8300 & 8400; assigned the view profile to the application; yet no screen/field is available for input at front-end.

Please help me in defining fields by either way as I am stuck at this issue.

Thanks & Regards,

Pavan Tripathi

    Have you checked up with the view profiles for Operational WCD?

    Options are there to add the tabs and fields in View Profiles.

    Please check at the below menu path:

    Plant Maintenance and Customer Service --> Work Clearance Management --> Master Data --> View Profiles --> 1. Define View Profiles & 2. Assign View Profiles.

    Hope this solves your query.

      Thanks for your reply!! I understand that long text fields can be maintained in catalogs. But, I am interested in activating the 'custom screen+ custom fields' through the provided BADIs so that I can provide alternative option to user for entering some of the permit information (mostly text information, where checkbox concept is not applied) on the screen fields. SAP has provided screen options in spro for this and BADI is also available for field activation; not sure why it is not working for me somehow.
