Several Problems with BO Retrieve Expression of BRFplus

The BO Retrieve is an expression type of BRFplus that makes it possible to access data of a BOPF object within a BRFplus rule system. It is a part of BOPF reuse tools so this is the right place for posting my question.

I would like to access the eMail address of an /BOFU/BUSINESSPARTNER object. As node I'm choosing ADRESSPARTNER.ROOT and EMAIL as association.

The first problem comes when I generate the result data object and choosing only the URI values since I get a dump. When you analyse the the source code the reason is very simple: the component URI of structure /BOFU/S_ADDR_EMAILK is a built in data type but has no DDIC representation which causes the problem.

But the second problem is far more severe: you can activate the expression when you choose the whole structure /BOFU/S_ADDR_EMAILK as result structure resp. the table within this structure type. But after doing so I’m not able to read the information using BRFplus simulation even if I see the values in for a certain business partner in transaction BOBT. I suspect the BO retrieval doesn’t work with associations in SAP_BS_FND 747 SP 5. 

Am I right? Do you have the same problems?`

Best Regards,

    Hi Tobias,

    If I understand your setup correctly, you start your expression from the address root node, and then add the email node using the association.

    my assumption is, that as the Addres is a DO, you can not start your navigation from the address root, and you need to start it from the address host node, navigate to the address root, and then navigate to the email node.
