Unable to use 0EQUIPMENT_HIER datasource


I am trying to activate the business content data source 0EQUIPMENT_HIER in ECC, in RSA5 transaction, selected the data source and activated it. It does show up in RSA6, but I can't see any field in the data source.

RSA6 screen, there is error marked symbol in the status.

Extract structure screen,

RSA3 extract checker is running for a long time and not displaying any records.

is there any customization required for activating this data source? Please let me know,

    Hi Sreekanth,

    please check with functional team, you may need to reactivate business function at SFW5 which is related to your data source.

    • Hi Sreekanth,

      As i think hier data source may not be released to use by the ODP.

      Please check Note - 2173041, 1558737 .

      please Explore usage of program - RODPS_OS_EXPOSE.

      there is a useful Wiki about this program,

      please search by using key word as "Releasing Extractors for use by the ODP API".

      I hope it helps.

    Hi Sreekanth,

    The red icon you see in RSA5 is a bit misleading. It doesn't mean the DataSource is inactive or has any issue; it just means the DataSource is not released for ODP usage. See SAP KBA 2173041 for details.

    Furthermore, RSA3 is not apropriate to test hierarchy DataSources such as 0EQUIPMENT_HIER. Try using program RSA1HCAT instead.
