Certificates storing in QC51

Hello ,

I have a requirement to attach the vendor certificates in QC51 and sent/store it in  the content server. I checked some threads related to this and did not get the information i want. I came across this store business document option in Qc51 , but i came to know this is an archive link rather than storing in content server.

Please let me know your suggestions.

      Hello All,

      There is a customizing in QM certificates (Define Archive Link) which is linked to the Content repository ,  you have to link to object type BUS2117. So once the certificate is attached using create attachment option in QC51 , then the certiticate gets stored in the Content repository.

      SAP calls this function as ARCHIVLINK , either you can store the documents in local desktop or in the content server. So i used this function to store and retrieve the certificates from content server.

      Thanks for your help

    I don't think that any standard object link is available in DMS for this purpose as I came across objects related to QM Info Record in procurement and in SD, Quality Notifications, Inspection Methods so far. I could suggest below alternative which of course demands for ABAP development. I think this should work but double confirm with ABAPer about its feasibility.

    1. Customize a new document type for certificates in SPRO
    2. Complete the remaining customization so that the data can be stored to content server.
    3. Create one document which contains a pdf or scanned copy of the certificate
    4. With some screen enhancement develop an additional entry field in QA02 or you can use existing short text field if it is not used so far.
    5. Put the exit in QA32 before making UD or result recording to check if this field has some value or not. If blank then stop the transaction
    6. Now this field should contain the exact same document number that you had created in step 3
    7. Thus, artificially link the inspection lot number to document number in DMS
    8. Similarly in CV03N update the inspection lot number as document text.

    Now how you can search?

    1. If you go to CV03N you will find the document description exactly same as inspection lot number
    2. If you go to QA33 you will find the short text exactly same as the document number.

    This is just my “to be” guess work! And yes this would be a big development and could have many aspects and challenges. Give a though on it and let us know if this works out!
