How to do Data Field Definition & Assignment Maintenance via PAPI?

In ME 6.1.4, are there APIs that correspond to the menu activities called:

Data Field Definition Maintenance ?

Data Field Assignment Maintenance ?

The reason for my question: I would like to create an IDAT that creates two new data fields, and then assigns them to category "SFC" and type "DEFAULT".

I searched the javadocs and was unable to find any APIs for this.

Thanks,

Barry

    Hi Barry!

    I guess that those API have Web service implementation below:

    DataFieldConfigurationServiceWS

    DataTypeConfigurationServiceWS

    I hope you will be able to find respective API within Javadocs.

    Hello

    For 15.0:

    Package com.sap.me.datatype

    DataFieldConfigurationServiceInterfaceProvides methods to create, read, update, delete, find, and validate data fields.DataTypeConfigurationServiceInterfaceProvides methods to create, read, update, delete, and find data types and data field assignments.

    Check if these interfaces exist in 6.1. Not sure if they were backported or not.

    Thanks guys. They are not in the 6.1.4 javadocs that I have. The package (com.sap.me.datatype) does not appear at all. But they do appear to be in our 6.1.4 system. I found them by searching in Service Extension Maintenance.

    Can I get access to the javadocs for 15.0? Is it likely that they would match the interfaces in 6.1?

    Thanks,

    Barry

    • ME 15.0 Javadocs are available at SMP the same place where other installation guides are located. So, if you are allowed to access ME 15.0 Guides, you can get them too.

      It's quite expectable that the interfaces should match - so you'd give it a go.
