MAM Profile Selection Variant

Hi,

I followed the configuration guide for MAM and created an Variant Operation for the Order Profile. Testing the variant (using IW37) it gives the correct amount of orders (5).

Now using transaction SE37 to test MAM25_001, it gives me more orders that I should (9 in total). Also in the mobile device I also get the 9 orders.

It was my understanding that the Variant should reduce the number of orders/operations that are downloaded in the device. It seems that it is ignoring the Variant. Do I need to do additional configuration to allow me use the variant? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jose,

    I can tell you a scenario in which this can happen.

    For eg:-

    In the variant if you use workcenter 'X' and in the "Configure user dependent data" customization if you use work-center 'Y' in "Order Assignment", then the combination of work-centers X and Y are taken as selection criteria i.e., all the order(operations) which have X or Y as work-centers are selected.

    So, in brief the filtering criteria field shouldn't be used/populated in variant. Then you will get your desired results.

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

      Hi Jose,

      The situation of yours is exactly the way I described.

      I think you have populated employee number in alm_me_user customization, when you set order assignment to employee number. Otherwise you won't get any orders.

      You can do one more thing.

      1. Don't give any work-center in variant for selection of orders. If possible, have a different selection criteria.

      2. Now use user->workcenter in assignment profile and give the work-center in alm_me_user transaction.

      This might work.
