EWM Print Physical Inventory Document EWM_PI_COUNTING

Hi together,

i am working in S/4HANA embedded EWM 2020 FPS1.

I am refering to documentation where it is stated, that it is possible to customize the form EWM_PI_COUNTING via
Internal Warehouse Processes> Physical Inventory> Print> Define Print Form for Physical Inventory Documents.

I did some research and found out, that the form is PDF based.

The standard action definitions for PI are with processing type "method call". So i configured a new action definition with processing type external communication and entered above mentioned PDF Form. I searched for an implementatin of the required BAdI to perform the generation of the document. Unfortunately there is no standard implementation. Is this a gap in SAP Standard? The Video in the documentation shows an example of the document so i expect that it is possible to print it out.

I did some research in the standard action definition PI_COUNT_FIORI (type method call). I found out that actual method call checks the configuration made in "Define Print Form for Physical Inventory Documents".

This action defintion is not capable of printing PDFs, nor is the call of the function module of the form capable of communication with the interface of PDF Form EWM_PI_COUNTING (it expects XML import parameters).

Has somebody already set up this document in EWM and can give me a hint if i missed some configuration?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
