Search Help from remote system

Hello Experts,

According to it's only possible to run search help from local system so if the services are developed on server a (frontend) and I'm getting data from server b (backend, ecc), I cannot use search helps from server b.

Only the search helps in the local SAP system can be used as a data source.

Does anybody (especially SAP employees in this forum) knows if SAP is working on this feature? (search help from remote system)


I aware that I can call function and implement it myself but a built in feature is always better (-:

    While I am not from SAP, we have faced also this problem. What we are doing is using the standard generation and are then overriding the method /IWBEP/IF_SB_GENDPC_SHLP_DATA~GET_SEARCH_HELP_VALUES in the DPC_EXT class in a semi-generic way to use rfc enabled FM BAPI_HELPVALUES_GET.

    Semi-automatic because we need additionally the information for the BAPIF4A structure per search help.
