Service Master Support in E-Sourcing/CLM

Hi all, I was wondering if CLM has support for service masters now? We are trying to send the service master from CLM to ECC through PI using the standard integration scenario in IS_ERP_ES_Integration integration scenario . ECC seems to support service items but CLM does not. I found a blog which talks about a work around that used the group concept in clm to send the service items. I was wondering if there was anything new that would make this more "out of the box". Thanks, Katie

    Hi Katie,

    Support for Service Masters is currently targeted for the next release of CLM: Release 11.0.  Also, in CLM Release 10.0 we added support for publishing the Line Item Group Description in the XML payload sent to SAP ERP so that the service line customization described in the blog you referenced can be implemented a little easier.

    Regards,

      Ed

      http://go.sap.com/documents/2016/06/b245a65a-767c-0010-82c7-eda71af511fa.htmlHi Venkateshwara, I found something very interesting. This is a sap document that explains this sort of enhancement. When I talked about directly enhancing the datatype (simply adding an element) ..this was what I was dong and it does work. (see link above). The reason for this was to keep the esr objects pure.

      My concern with this approach is that it does not follow standard sap enhancements from what I have always understood. I have always understood that you should not directly add elements to the standard datatype but should use the standard enhancement. See below:

      This was the reason I thought it was not working because when you use the data type enhancement, it prefixes the field name with ns0:.

      Has something changed. Is this document the proper way?

      Thanks.
