Copying user Interface design of configuration profile


I have created a configuration profile for a material with user interface design. I have maintained the group of characteristics using value assignment > interface design > characteristics grouping.

Can I copy this interface design with the characteristics groups under different name and then make changes in it?

It will help me to save my time to create it from scratch.

Thank you.

    Hi Deepak,

    As far as I know, I am not aware of any standard function that can help reaching directly your aim.

    However, there are a couple of BAPI's that can be used in a custom program, and with them I do believe it should be possible to satisfy your request.

    They are:


    that loads detail information for Interface Design


    that creates (or changes) Interface Design

    (please also have a look at CUDUI function group for other).

    Basically, the custom program should first read the existing ID details with the first BAPI, make the needed changes (ID name and whatever) and finally create the new ID with the second BAPI.

    Alternatively, there could also be the possibility to create an IDoc from the existing ID, make the needed changes (ID name, etc), and import it afterwards.

    I do hope this could be of some help.

    Thanks and regards,
