Conversion of Ids for standard objects referenced by custom objects

94 Views Last edit Sep 05, 2017 at 07:22 PM 2 rev


We have a custom BO that contains references to standard objects (Customers, Materials, etc.) to store additional information for those tuples.

When this object is saved we need to do a webservice call to R/3 to keep that system in Sync.

The standard objects have different identifiers in R/3 and C4C. The standard integration channels for these transparently do a conversion via the Code List mapping functionality.

Question is: Is there a standard way to have the system convert the IDs inside our custom BO when sending this webservice message? I suspect the answer is no and that we need to manually code the conversion by using the ObjectIdentifierMapping BO, but can you please confirm this?

Anyone wants to share experiences for this problem?

Thank you very much for any pointers.

Kind regards,
