Custom search cretria in specification workbench

Hi SAP EHS experts,

I need to configure a custom search criteria in specification workbench. I gave the requirements to my technical consultant and three function modules were created looking at standard example.

<Main FM>

<Main FM>_CMD

<Main FM>_PARA

I configured the main FM in manage user exits. But the search criteria is not showing up. If I use the standard FM and create an additional entry the search criteria shows up. If you have developed custom search criteria please let me know if I need to do any other configuration other than adding the main FM to the manage user exits config.

Thanks

Pugal

    Hi

    I can think of two reasons

    I. Check the naming convention you have followed - it should be no Z before

    ii. If the FM is active or not ?

    Thanks

    I am sure there are Z is not an issue and FM is active. Any other suggestions?

    Hello

    if you "just" follow the implementation logic of the several "search exits" as delivered by SAP you are doing a good job.

    For structure as:

    <Main FM>

    <Main FM>_CMD

    <Main FM>_PARA

    If i remember correct: this structure is needed for "output variants". I am not sure if you need the same structure for "search" exits: i need to check in our system.

    This is a "potential" issue in CG02/CG02BD

    the "exits" can be linked to one specification type (e.g. REAL_SUB = SUBSTANCE => Exits can be related to "Specification" only. So if there is a "misconfiguration" done: you will not see the new search exit

    I do no assume that you have used this approach.. So if you just follow the "implementation" logic (as function module related to search for "Specification with header data" you really should succeed. There is no other "on top" configuration needed according to my knowledge

    c:b:

    Hi

    We previously faced the same issue and understand that our naming convention was not proper. can you check if you have correct suffix at the end of the FM module ? like <FM NAME>_<SUFFIX Mentioned in FM>

    Thanks and Regards
