Routing Maintenance, Custom Data (SAP ME 6.1)

Hi,

at the moment we use CUSTOM_FIELDS.VALUE to be able to categorize a few routing steps together while creating a webi report, e.g. Step ID 010 and 020 get the Value "1". However, it seems that this table is not available in the ODS DB.

Is there another way to deal with this requirement without using CUSTOM_FIELDS? Any other approaches how to solve this issue? It should be possible to use an information given in the routing maintenance to categorize different steps.

Thanks in advance and best regards

Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Perhaps you can agree on some naming convention. Either for Operation names or for their Descriptions. And then get data from DB filtering as per the convention.

    Br, Alex.

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for your reply.

      This would be a possibility, but unfortunately it creates a lot of work to create and maintain it.

      An example:

      Two products have a similar routing but not exactly the same. Therefore an operation might occur one step earlier or later. Hence I had to maintain different filters according to operation and product type. Once a routing step is added, I had to adjust it manually.

      So the goal would be to have a "self maintaining" setup. If a step is added, it will be categorized correctly due to a particular value given in the routing maintenance.

      Best regards

      Alex

    If you turn on Audit Logging for your Routing, then when you create or update a routing, the entire routing definition, including its custom fields, will appear in the AL_ tables in the ODS database.

    Specifically, AL_ROUTER_STEP will be dynamically appended with the custom fields and their contents.
